If it's shutting down by itself that could be a virus or another infection on your computer. If you have antivirus software try scanning and repairing any problems it finds. If not, or if that doesn't work, you may need to reinstall your operating system (using your original OS disk that came with your computer) on your computer for a complete reset of your system. This WILL delete all files you have on the system at the time, so prepare accordingly.
REALLY> consider not a format and reload, that is tons of work, tons of update downloads, tons of program install, tons of user data install.....It is much easier to uninstall what you no longer want on your system.
You could also create a new user and log in that way....but man, not used icons, just throw them away.....
formating and reloading is used much less frequently now days.
The vista os has an energy complince control
you can set your laptop to never goto sleep in the system control or it maybe in the monitor control panel but this will not allow it to blank out on ya and save a little time in tasks the haven to restart may be a time for a service update ( I myself just got Vista spv2 Its worken for me so check for updates
An external drive would be a possible solution. You could also buy a new internal drive (be sure it is the same interface), buy a 2.5" external usb case, and mirror the data over to the new one. You could then install the new drive into the computer, put the old one in the external case and either use it as a backup or an external drive.
No it is quite a simple change, but like anything electronic you should work carefully.
The drive is held in the laptop with a few small screws. Once you remove the screws...the drive slides out. In the space you can then slide in the BlueRay or HDDVD or whatever you wish to replace the present drive with.
Go for it the Dell...it looks like a nice machine!
