Question about Dell Inspiron 9400 Notebook
i got a dell inspiron 9400 17'' laptop (pentium dual core 2x2ghz, 2gb ram, 80gb hdd, geforce 7900GS and windows vista premium), i bought it 1 year ago refurbished via ebay and its around 2 years old.
After running low on the battery while playing a game and the normal automatic shutdown (like hibernate mode) the start button got pushed 3 times (to less patience) while restarting the laptop, now connected to 220v currency. It started after a while and came up like after a shutdown. After probably 10min everything froze, the screen turned black and i had to shut it down by pushing the start button.
Now i can start it, but its getting really hot unnormally fast in the area around the two fans and in the center of the body, its completely stuck with black screen, hdd still working (indicated by its little signal light), the screen is flashing once or twice a minute to a different black and the only thing that works is the start button to shut it down.
Is there any explanation for this problem and a suggestion what i could do, cuz i can still run it for a little while before its getting hot.

This sounds like the system has glitched. Do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. This should clear the glitch, get it back up and running, and cure the overheating problem. Try this and get back to me if there are any issues.
