Question about Dell Latitude E5420 Notebook
I have windows7 loaded. Power settings are set to never turn anything off when the lid is closed. Sometimes when I close the lid, the laptop dies (doesn't shut down). When I open it back up, I have to press the power button and windows starts up again from scratch as if it crashed. It doesn't happen every time, but usually after a few days of running (I hibernate it overnight), it is more likely to happen.

It sounds like there is an issue with the system memory.
Remove both the power adapter and the battery. Turn the laptop over and locate the RAM (memory) cover and remove the holding screw.
Take out the system memory and clean the brass contacts, also clean the slots that the memory sits in.
Re-seat the memory making sure it clips into place nice and tight and replace the RAM cover.
Return power to the laptop and turn it on to see if that has helped.
If it still won't boot up then you may need to purchase new memory for the laptop.

Testimonial: "leecom72, Thank you for the prompt advice. I tried it cleaning it, but still not working. I'll try new memory (wanted to upgrade anyways). Thanks!"
Your laptop either goes to hibernate or sleep mode when you close the lid. Then, when you open the lid up, the screen is still off because your pc already hanged/froze and could not wake up at all (usual problem in vista). Off course, hard shutdown would fix it. But actual fix is under power options on your control panel. Check your current scheme and edit it. There are options there that you can select to "do nothing when closing the lid"
Hope this helps

This has been a known issue with XPS M1530. You can try changing the power options for once. Try flashing your BIOS to version A12. If it still doesn't work, you may have to opt for replacing your motherboard.
