Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

1 Answer

Same problem I also have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop that likes to shut down on its own. I thought it might be overheated so I got the program to monitor CPU and GPU temp. It seems normally it goes to 60-70 degrees but when I run games it will jump to 90ish and then random shut down starts. It seems many ppl have similar problem with this product over on the dell support forum and dell has not issue any official statement. All the posters tried calling the support line and that's going no where. So I am not sure if it's a defective parts or it's blocking fan or whatever. But it's getting really annoying...

No its not about your fan's or SMPS problem... Actually exactly same problem may have only 2 reasons :

  • May be your laptop's mother board is having some fault in any of its module. But since its very costly affair and least probable in your scenario.
  • As you said it is getting shut down after games then it simply means your laptop's RAM (Random Access Memory) is faulty now and soon your laptop will stop working at all. It won't even boot. Don't worry cost of RAM is affordable and u can replace it with new one.

Rate this solution if it was helpful to you...

I have a dell inspirion 1525 and it over heats and shuts down all the time


Check the fan in the vents if they are still working, if yes, clean them, you can do it with a can of compressed air.

If the fans are not spinning anymore, you'll have to replace them.

Is overheating and shutting down, also the keyboard keys are sticking, sometimes I have to strike the same key twice


If the computer is restarting then it might be the FAN issue and FAN need to be replaced, but if the computer is shutting down then go to dell website, then go to driver downloads and update the BIOS then check weather issue perists..


Hope it will work!!!

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.

I have a dell inspiron 1525


Hi

Thank you

What you are describing is a classic overheating issue, i think the heatsink has gone and will need to be replaced

To be sure please try the following

1) Power on laptop
2) Press the F2, F12 or esc key to enter bios
3) Leave in bios and see if it shuts down (Im sure it will)

If it dows then it is the heatsink not finctioning correctly and will need to be replaced

I have done many many of these and is quite striaghtforward to replace

Please book the laptop into a reputable PC shop for repair

Dell inspiron 1525 laptop shutdown problem


The Laptop is not responding to the Software request sent to the BIOS or one is not getting there.
Best Solution is to make sure all of your Microsoft Updates are performed. Not just the Critical ones... but all that apply. You may see several hardware driver updates.

This will help the Software and Hardware to communicate with each other...

Dell inspiron1525 shuts down by itself


It might be overheating. Try getting a can of compressed air from Radio Shack or even CVS. Blow out all the vents with the laptop off. Wait 30 minutes and then power on. Keep laptop off beds and blankets as they tend to block air flow.
