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.

    The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Dell 230 schematic

The docs, including the service manual, for the Dell Vostro 238 are at this web page. If you're looking for an actual circuit board schematic, you're probably out of luck. If you need the board layout for jumpers and so forth, the service manual page 28 is for you.

I have a dell vostro 230 slim and I can not get a picture from the on board video what can I do. And if I get a pci-e low profile video card will I half to change the bios for it to see it?

If you are sure the graphics adapter is gone, you have check ALL cables, connections, try another monitor/ cable, drivers: A Graphics card is a option, make sure to look at the min. requirements for the graphic card, the power specs are important. I would not change the BIOS if Dell does not require it.

Dell Vostro 230 shuts down randomly?

Are the fan and vents free of dust? Is the CPU fan clean? Working? In power settings is it set for High Performance? Try SpeedFan, I'm not sure it will work with your processor but you can try:
. It's FREEware. You can adjust your fans to max. see if that helps your problem. Maybe the PSU is going bad.

Your computer is toast! If it was submerged in water, your motherboard, hard drive, memory and power supply are contaminated.

Dell Vostro 1220 shutdown/restart problem

Frankly speaking, Vostro has many intermittent issue like slow start-up, application error during shutdown or restart. Sometimes it even crashed with our co antivirus, acrobat writer etc..

We have reported many cases to DELL but unfortuntely no fix solution. We have at least 5 machines out of 20 reported similar issue.

Tell you, the best is to upgrade to Latitude if you budget permit. No point wasting time on this.

Unofficially, dell engineer told our IT engineer that vostro has many problem and not really suitable for office use... that is why the price so cheap...

From my true heart. good luck!
