SOURCE: Inspiron 531 freezes
You have to do some maintenance cleaning and check up. Both hardware and software. As this age usually two years.One common failure is the harddrive. You should get some backup procedure. As for software you may do the following. 1. Registry cleaning (Ccleaner is good but be careful also) 2. Application cleaning, uninstalling those program not needed in the system. 3. Log and history cleaning. 4. Defrag is good. 5. And virus scanning it also one of the major cause of system freezes. 6. And unloading some files (back it up then unload) As for hardware. You may do some dusting or reseating. Usually the CPU fans and system fans and its airways.

Not just 'lightning strike' but any 'dead' PC.
Unpower the unit and then take off the access side panel. While looking into the unit, put the power back on (plug it in, but DO NOT press the Power button yet). - LED's should light, but no fans should turn. Still looking at the fans - especially the CPU fan, press the Power button and if they twitch then your unit power supply has died.
If they spin for a few seconds then die, look at the capacitors by the memory - if they bulge and are 'wet' then the motherbioard has died - ask Dell for replacement! (This is common, but Dell will only recognise it at the point of walking into the court, then only if you sign a secrecy agreement/gagging order!).
