Question about Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook
I have the exact same problem. However I don't think the problem is
the oper. system. The computer shuts down at random; many times it
won't even boot. I originally thought maybe their was a loose ram
stick, so i tried replacing it and had no luck. Then I tried removing
the hdd and tried to get into the BIOS, but it still sometimes would
shut off; meaning that the o/s can't be the problem.
It still works sometimes, but other times just shuts off or won't make it past the initial boot screen. I'm thinking it has to be a problem with something in the power supply. It's seems like the power just completely cuts off, i've never seen anything like it.

If you do not have lots of data you may need to reinstall but if you do try to format the hard drive first fully not only quick format...you need to clean everything on the hard drive and that is most peopl over look just to short the time.
If you are going to do it then do it good so you do not need to come back to same issue in the futur...good luck

There are a couple of things which can cause this unfortunately none of them are good if you haven't backed up any files you created. If your virus files are up to date then you are left with a choice to reload or repair the OS. Boot your windows installation DVD and select repair windows files as the option. If it works only the windows files will be changed and you lose no data you created. If it does not then you are left with a total system restore. You can try doing system restore to put your os back to a day or two before the problem started but this rarely works.
