My Dell Inspiron 1525 Shutdown Spontaneously

My Dell Inspiron 1525(Special Edition) has started to shutdown spontaneously recently. I have had it for about 1 year and half and it only started last month.

My Friend and I thought it was a Flash/Internet Explorer problem at first since it would only happen on sites like Facebook and The Guy with the Glasses. However, It's started happening when we weren't using Internet Explorer. Also, we thought it was a Spyware/Virus problem but when we ran AVG Freeware and Spybot, they both also caused the the labtop to shutdown spontaneously.

Also, it doesn't go into a shutdown sequence when it happens. And after turning it back on, the computer doesn't mention anything about an improper shutdown.

Does anyone have an idea on what is causing these shutdown to happen spontaneously?

Generally with laps the reason for a spontaneous shutdown is power. Either your battery is low or the transformer for power is going bad or is bad. There is information under the control panel, then power options which show the power settings and a meter to check the amount of power left and what is being used for power. Check those two items and you may fine your problem. Also make sure the battery is properly inserted into the slot, if it is loose a bit of movement may trigger the shutdown.

If either of these work please leave feedback.

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 Inspiron Laptops spontaneously shutdown often


sounds like the battery is going bad. how long do they run before they die?

I would recommend looking at the power conservation settings in the control panel and adjusting them to reduce power consumption. You should also lower the lighing level in the room so the stundents can reduce the brightness of the laptop screen...that is a huge power saver.
