Dell Inspiron 1000 laptop shuts down after 30 minutes
My 4-maybe 5 year old laptop is dying after 30 minutes, even when I have it plugged in. Is it the battery? Also, if I try to turn it back on after it dies, I get a "failure operations" and a black screen and then it dies again. 'Is it worth it to repair?

Hi there. I've been a Dell Technician for more than 2 years and from what I know, this type of system is not designed for gaming maybe because of its graphics card is integrated with the motherboard and sharing its memory.
However, your system is still under warranty (1-yr limited warranty). If you purchased it from the US, you can call their toll-free phone and have it checked. But if you live outside US, check with the store from where you purchase it so they can run a thourough check on your system.
You may also try using a notebook cooling pad to help your system cool down a bit especially when you're playing games.
1) Remove battery 2) Remove wall charger 3) Press and hold the power button in for 30 seconds 4) Plug in wall charger only 5) Retry powering the laptop and if it switches on plug battery in after 5 minutes
Well if it is always plugged to the wall then the laptop's power jack is the common problem there. You can have a Computer Technician check it and diagnose it for you. Be careful how much you pay, if that is the problem (i'm pretty sure it has to be) you can shop for the part online (ebay is a good place to find them for around ten bucks) and hand it to the computer guy. Otherwise you may be charged a fortune to get it fixed. Next time, use a power surge between the power adapter and the wall's power outlet. Here's is a brief explanation of what happens with the power jack. Inside of it there are two or three pieces of metal that look like thick wires and what they do is transfer the current to the laptop. Eventually they wear out and break (common cause is having your laptop plugged to the wall continously exposing it to all sorts of power surges). Hope it helps, good luck.
depending on how old the system is and how hard it was used on battery the battery may be old and dying and may need to be replaced, from my experince ive seen laptop batterys only last about a year at best
