I think it may be your Heatsink and fan may cleaning so it does,nt over heat clean it with a fine paint brush and if there is any dust there , Then use the Hoover over the where the fan is and on full power just let it get the rest of dust out, Maybe as one of the lads above stated it could be your Grathics card on its way out, Remove if you know how to !!!! Safely, Let me know how you get on. Andy8ukuk.

You have 1 of 4 problems. 1) System cooling is the issue as stated by pradeeps. 2) The video card is giving up. 3) The hard drive is ready to die. 4) The rams are ready to be replaced. The cheapest and quickest way to temporarily or permanently solve the issue is to get a can of compressed air to blow around the fan and vent to remove as much dust as you can. As for the hard drive, it may need to be replaced and therefore may be a bit costly for such an old laptop. With the ram, this can be replaced yourself. Try the first suggestion before anything else. Let me know how it goes.

May be ur cooling fan is not working n its getting shutdown due to overheating. Try to get it cleaned or replaced at local pc mechanic. Won't cost much. Otherwise it may be ur motherboard is about to die. Get backup whenever it is up.

SOURCE: adminstrator password problem
If this is a white and grey screen, before windows starts, it's a system board password. To clear this you will need to contact dell, have your service tag and express code ready, and if you haven't already, you will need to register ownership with Dell. I posted a link at the bottom for phone numbers of Dell's support. Dell is great in the fact that they have a master code for each of their machines.
However, if this is a windows password, which I don't believe it is, you will need to start windows in safe mode by pressing F8 at start up. Then log in under administrator and clear passwords in each user account.
Here's the link, the phone numbers are about half way down the page. You'll just need to give them a call, it won't take very long, I've done it a several times with Dell machines I've purchased at auctions.

Looks to me like the battery is bad, try another battery if you can and see if the laptop charges it. If it does then the battery is bad, if it doesn't then its something with the motherboard.

Make sure you do not have a bootable CD or DVD in the drive. If that does not resolve, then try holding the "home" (Media Direct) button while pressing the Power button on.
