Your problem is that the computer is overheating and the thermal switch is shutting it down. What you need to do is to blow out the computer with compressed air. "Air in a can" will do, but air from a shop compressor will do a better job if you have it available. When blowing it out, be sure to blow the air into all vents until no more dust comes out. also be sure not to damage anything inside by getting the nozzle too close to components. This will fix your shutdown problem. Best wishes!

I having a dell inspiron 1525 laptop i brought 16 months back but now system was once i start with in 30minuts it will became very heat and automatcally will shut down would you please tell me the reason


The only thing in can think of is the cooling fan in the notebook has died. there is a few things that can cause them to go out.
1. just the age of the fan
2. alot of dust gets into the fan
3. smoking alot around the computer can cause tar to build up on the fan also causing it to go out.
4. The vents on the fan are clogged by dust.
Those are a few things that can cause this.
hope that helps a little bit thanks
Steven.

Dell inspiron 5100 goes blank sometime only could be online or just playing a game. Lights on the front are still blinking when this happens when I close the laptop lid then open it the screen comes back...


Sounds like an issue with :
1) Loose connection issue between the display and mail unit. For this you may need to visit the service center to have it checked.
2) In some cases, this issue is resolved after re-installing OS. ( seen for myself on a non-Dell laptop, issue was gone after reinstalling XP )
My guess is, its a loose connection which needs to be fixed by the Dell service center.
Thanks.
