Shutting your laptop off like that can do damage to the hard drive over time, so if you need to take it back to the store you bought it from later on, you may want to leave that part out. (They'll always find ways to make it your fault your computer isn't working so don't make it easy for them)
This could be an easy fix, though. Disconnect the power source and remove the battery, and then press the power button for 30 seconds. This is a default reset on many newer laptops. After that, put the battery back in, plug the power to the wall and you should be set.
One thing I should also mention:
Several Dell models (and a few Toshiba, for that matter), have been giving these same symptoms that require a lot more than pressing a power button, so be sure you know where your warranty information is. If anyone aside from a certified professional opens it up, the warranty is voided, which the salesmen and techhies where you bought it will be more than happy to tell you

    rcw1962 has a good point, there's going to be a toll free number on that computer to call.


    There's absolutely NO reason that should be happening after only two days, and NO reason it should need a BIOS update new out of the box.. I would take it back and get a replacement, but I'm impatient that way, I just have little love for most salespersons

If it is NEW, have you not been in touch with your support line, it must still be covered by your warantee.
Have you made your recovery disk yet.
Maybe a system recovery may help

Dell inspirion 1545 respond slow and shuts down even when on the desktop

The most probable, as far as I know, the hard drive is dying. Please test the laptop with a healthy (or brand new) hard drive.

Dell XPS M1530 Vista originally installed - Fresh installed Win7 and now touch pad does not work - the right button works, and sometimes the left, but the touch pad does not. I've install the latest...

If you've reinstalled the drivers for the touchpad, the issue is likely the hardware- if in warranty, contact Dell tech support- if not, you may need to purchase the palmrest assembly and consult for the install instructions
