Let it cool down.. Put it in the freezer(in a plastic bag for 20 minutes with the battery out of it. Then allow it to warm up for 10 minutes. these laptops are not great at playing games because they overheat..you should get an external graphics card if you get this running again..

Heres a link to a place where you can get a better graphics card

My dell inspiron 1545 won't shut down went i click on the shut down icon it won't turn off .


Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

Dell Inspiron 2200; Win XP pro; detect router but no connect


Have you change settings on your router? if not try to disconnect and reconnect your dell computer. if still not working. turn off both laptop, turn off the router and modem. wait for 10-20 seconds then turn on the modem first, and if the modem is stable, turn on the router, and if it is stable, turn on the dell computer and try to connect. If still fails, try to delete wireless profile adn recreate it. If still fails, check device manger if there is a problem in your wireless driver. If still cannot connect, perform system restore.

I have dell inspiron 1100 laptop, when i turn it on fan goes on for about 15 sec,with no screen, power lights and battery lights either, i can hear sound from HDD and DVD rom, but after 25 sec everything...


Could be loose battery pack.
A bad memory chip would do this as well. Sounds like your not getting power.

Try this,

Unplug it, remove battery, wait couple minutes, press and hold the power button for 5 full long seconds, wait couple minutes more, then put battery back in securely, then plug in, turn back on.

Inspiron 6000 shuts down while playing Magic Match. I have it sitting on external fan, so it's not overheating. This is the only game so far, that shuts it down after 15 minutes of play.


This could be down to a graphics driver that needs updating or a direct x problem. Try updating the graphics driver and see if that resolves your problem.

Cannot play dvds or cds


you might need to download a driver. When I reformatted my harddrive I had to do this. No software that came with my comp helped it. Try looking on the Dell Website for free downloads for the driver you need.
