Question about Dell Inspiron 5100 Laptop
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!
