Blow the insides of the unit with a can of compressed air. Pay particular attention to all of the cooling fans. They can get very dirty sometimes which means their efficiency diminishes. Also blow out the heat sink on top of the processor. I do this as routine maintenance. Don't use a vacuum cleaner. You might **** up something important. If this doesn't help there is something else wrong. Memory getting hot, power supply? Could be a lot of things.

This is a heat issue. Make sure, as the other poster said, to check your CPU fan. If it is working, also make sure that it and the heatsink below it is free of dust.

The motherboard might not be compatible with the computers processor. Check the compatibility of the two, you might wanna change something. Ram cards could also have different frequencies, making them conflict while functioning. Get ram cards of the same frequency and memory. Motherboard could have malfunctioned as well.

    Anything heating up that fast couldn't be caused by a just a simple fan problem. I've owned computers with malfunctioned fans inside that could go on for a lot longer than 10 minutes with out reaching that height of temperature. Nevertheless, the fan in the PROCESSOR could be a plausible cause. If having it fixed doesn't work, try the solutions I've posted above. If left unattended external hardware such as printers and scanners may bug down.

These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.

I have problems in the startup windows and windows explore,networks system and use of one a antivirus.


It is also important to remove the suspicious applications and programs in the computer to avoid Windows freezing. In this type of infection not only your Windows registry gets corrupted and needs massive repair but also there is virus based penetration in the Windows set up. In this situation it is recommended to conduct a virus scan as well.However, if your Windows freezes up, the best solution is to repair the computer registry.use registry cleaner reg in out
computer restarting Click Start and Open the Control Panel 2. Go to System and Maintenance, Click on System. 3. Select Advanced System Settings and choose Advance tab. 4. Under Startup and Recovery, click on Settings. 5. Under System failure uncheck Automatically restart. Another cause for random reboots is that the computers processor is getting too hot. To check this, enter the computers bios during boot (usually by pressing Delete, F1 or F10 when the computer just starts) and there will be an option about the computers temperature (often under "PC Health"). U can have registry error.Run a registry cleaner reg in out .

Computer freezes up randomly about 1x per week, can be in IE, Word, windows life mail, etc. Only way to get rid of it is by cold shut down. Also audio and video can also freeze up, this happens perhaps 3x...


Do you think computer is running hot? computer is freezing up or running slow could be a heat issue.

If it is not then try for updating the bios from dell support website - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=555&l=en&s=biz&ServiceTag=&SystemID=STUDIO1749&os=BIOSA&osl=EN

also try to find out if there is any third party software which you might installed in your computer which is not compatible.

My computer freezes


The most common cause is memory. So, I would suggest removing and testing your memory modules one at a time to see which module is faulty. Good luck
