My laptop has started to crash with with episodes getting closer together when I'm gaming or the longer it has been turned on. Is this a problem with overheating? Do I need to replace a fan? What could be the cause? Thanks.

Hello.

Either you have a hardware issues, such as memory or fan or an operating system problem, since your laptop is overheating.

First, disconnect all cables and remove the battery. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

Take compressed air and blow air around the fan area, since it could be a dust issue.

If still a problem, could be an operating system problem. Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

Hope these suggestions help.

most of the crashes are due to video problems.You need to make sure all your drivers are up to date.
some levels are worse then others.like the penguin lair.turn off vsync,then turn off mirrors.and try again.if that don't help,turn off your music.

Inspiron e 1505 does not turn' on


It could be a couple of things, but it seems most likely that it is the RAM Memory that is causing this.  You might need to add more.  I have seen this before with one of my customers, we upgraded his ram from 1.5 to 2 gbs, and his games/windows no longer crashed
