Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Dell Vostro 3300 lagging with Intel HD Video card

Turn off built in video and add a better card. See the minimum graphics specs for software. The video memory is shared on those Intel cards. Meaning that 4GB RAM is not totally available. The OS is going to use 1-1.5gb for running the system, then 256 (.25 gb) for the video. Means that a max of 1.75gb is available to run the game. You should have at least 8gb min. in a modern system. Especially if Win7 to Win10.

BTW: 4gb is good for surfing, or writing documents, but when you get into gaming ware - the pc spends most of its time using the swap file, (source of lag, since HD is 1000x slower than ram). So it stops the game to write, stops the game to read back aka LAG.

Remove password bios vostro3300

By comparison with many laptops this is fairly easy. You need to disconnect the CMOS battery from the motherboard, hold the power button down for about 10 seconds to ensure no residual charge remains and then replace the CMOS battery.
The reason t is relatively easy is that there is a Service Manual for the Vostro 3300 here:-
I suggest you download it to a computer and save it for future reference. It is in pdf format so you can use the search feature to find the relevant bits that you need and if you are not able to carry out the procedure on your laptop whilst accessing the manual on another computer, you can print out only the page you need.
The main bits you need are :-
Page 2-3 - Removing base cover
Page 4-5 - Removing main battery
Page 12-13 - Removing the coin-cell battery

Please take care not to damage any of the internal kit. Nothing should need any forcing and I would recommend studying the manual before starting work.
Good Luck

I have dell vostro 3300,the main problem is 30minutes running after it is automatic close and next power button push then power ok but not screen displayes and 2 minutes later power also off please so

I'll suspect this is happening because of CPU heating. You can use software like this one: to check the temperatures.

I have a dell Vostro 3300 laptop I have a problem with graphic card,it seems to be installed but I can't run any screen saver or game! I updated the driver but it didn't help

If you have installed Windows XP, you'll find the NVidia portion of the switchable video configuration will no longer function (It is only supported in Vista and Windows7)
If you install the Notebook system software, Chipset then the Intel Video driver you should have normal Intel Video functions.
If not running XP, post your OS and any software changes you have made to the system
