Dell Inspiron6400/E1505 restarts automatically after shut off


The problem of your laptop is that once it has been attacked by a virus. In that very case that virus may be removed but the damage it has made to your OS cannot be restored unless you format your laptop with Windows XP/Vista.
Or next best reason may be problem with your laptop RAM.
You should quickly consult a good hardware engineer for sough ting your problem out. Bye

Does not power up


Battery may be bad on the laptop. Try removing the battery and powering on the computer with only the AC power.

(Usually you can flip them over and there's a locking "slide" that you have to hold over while you remove the battery. )

If it still refuses to power it on, try to note what it says on the screen (use a digital camera to snap a few photos if necessary) and post back. It seems likely that it's the battery, however.

Hope that helps.

Problem regarding shut down


At least it doesn't Atomically shut down. that's a bigger problem.


but seriously give us a clue. no computer actually shuts down automatically, you have to push something or set it up to shut down on a timer or something. you've given us nothing to work from.

some ideas: remove the virus, remove torrent programs that might be keeping the computer running all the time, reinstall the OS.
