Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

2 Answers

Dell 1525 completely shuts itself down eg. when playing Sims 2

We've had this laptop for just over a year now, and it has just started shutting down, mainly when my daughter is playing Sims 2, or is on MSN. It just shuts itself off with no warning. Also, the power cablle appears damaged (where it tends to bend when plugged in) - not sure whether this has anything to do with it??

    my 1525 laptop shuts down randomly as well... had it for not even a year and contacted Dell support... they told me to run the diagnostics test...it froze while doing that... so they sent me a new hard drive... now a month on from the new hard drive the same thing is happening again! i'm not even doing anything major on the laptop at the time.

Inside the game change the resolution and check if the same problem persists. if so then the game is using the resources a lot.
also this is a problem with the OS. but you will have to sort it out with the game before deciding

Laptop keeps shutting down


There are a few reasons, bad power supply adapter, cooling fan is not working or there is dirt blocking the ports causing it to shut down, battery issues, "remove to verify" the DC jack in the laptop has become intermittent and must be dismantled down to the motherboard level and flipped over for solder touch up.

Try the RAM modules one at a time. See if system run normally one one but not the other. If no change, then the system is most likely not cooling properly and when under load it crashes. If that is the case, a CPU Heatsink/Cooling fan might resolve. If still no go, then motherboard

Dell Inspiron 1525 shuts down


You have had Win 7 for TWO YEARS? Hmmmm well anyway thats the problem. You see Win 7 and games don't MIX, the only way may help is to run in compatibility mode for XP SP2, and Run & Install as Administrator.
