Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?
My 1520 won't stay on for more than 10mins even plugged in
\015 If I try to do anything that requires alot of cpu usage my laptop can't cope with it and just restarts. Just playin a game or video can cause this. I've asked dell support and they ran me through a test which showed that all of the hardware is fine so it must be a software problem. Perhaps my laptop can't cope with vista? Could do with some suggestions plz.\015
Check for viruses with something like Spybot search and destroy,Then go to the hardware center and check to see if any hardware needs updating.

I have a Toshiba 1405-s171 serial # 72154211P. The green power light would not go on, but the laptop would still function properly. Then I started to get a message something to the effect that the battery was running low---even when the battery was not installed. So I thought it might be the A/C power adapter and got a new one. The laptop functioned awhile and then got the same battery low-shutting down message. Now when plugged in and turned on there are no lights. When turned on the DVD
