I have a problem on a Dell laptop that shut down alone

I have a problem on a Dell laptop. Some times when I am using the laptop, the laptop automatical shutdown alone. The operating system that I am using is Vista, and the most functions that I am using in this laptop is a microphone and msn games. I have an Ispirion 1501, and will automatically shut off after about 20-30 mins. This is a pain, cuz if I am in the middle of something it's gone. We've only had this computer for about 2 years, and it's not even the main computer we use.

Run and check your anti-virus.
Try logging into Safe Mode and check whether the problem persist. Suspected also that your system is corrupted. You need to reformat your machine to it's default factory settings. But before doing it, you need to save all your important files because everything will be wipe-out if you are going to reformat your machine.

Try removing your battery and running your laptop without it. I had the same problem, this worked for me. Only thing is now your computer will shut off if you lose power or it becomes unplugged. Look at the model number and try getting yourself a new battery.

I can't shutdown my laptop


Hold the power button down for about five or six seconds, it will shut down then. If it keeps doing this, you need to look at what is running in the background that is preventing you from shutting down via the menu.

Click START
click RUN
type in msconfig
take a look at what is scheduled to load at startup and then try to decide if you really need to have that application on all of the time. BE CAREFUL. If you don't recognize an entry, leave it alone until you can learn what it is.

My computer restarts alone ! on/off ?


Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.
Good luck

My Dell Laptop D610 wont turn on. It was on, I


Turn off laptop, Remove the battery and the power cable and press the power button for about 30 seconds.

Check for light on AC adapter.
Try with battery alone. Try with AC adapter alone.

Try with a different adapter of the same kind.

else the issue could be with the main board for which I would request you to contact the manufacturer.
