Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Dell Laptop shuts off

\015 My dell inspiron 1525 shuts off with no warning, it can be either as its starting up or 15 to 2 hrs and it shuts down. Sometimes it will restart then shut off again. Sometimes it won't turn back on at all. I tried a system restore to see if that would help and it didn't shut off on me. I start the computer up this morning and before I could even get to the welcome screen it shut off and won't come back on. \015\012I start back to school in a week and I need it. HELP!!\015

Answers :

Check PSU
Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter to the laptop. See if it still shuts off on you at random.

If it still does then try another AC Adapter and if it still shuts down randomly then it might be a motherboard issue.

Take a can of air and blow it into the air vents on your laptop. This will remove any dust or debris that might be affecting air flow.

If that doesn't do it then the only other thing to try would be to take apart the laptop and where the heatsink sits on top of the CPU, take the heatsink off and make sure there is no dirt or dust buildup on it. If there is buildup on there that would cause the laptop to shut down without warning cause that means its not cooling like normal.

At this point if you went thru all of this and you still get shutdowns then the motherboard is bad

Same problem I also have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop that likes to shut down on its own. I thought it might be overheated so I got the program to monitor CPU and GPU temp. It seems normally it goes to 60-70 degrees but when I run games it will jump to 90ish and then random shut down starts. It seems many ppl have similar problem with this product over on the dell support forum and dell has not issue any official statement. All the posters tried calling the support line and that's going no where.
