I know this is way old but I am now having the same problem. I am running xp and I am not having any other issues. There are no programs running I have checked and I have no lines or bars on the screen. It just says it is shutting down. I left it like that for 4 hrs and it still didn't shut down. :-(

I would need more information than that to give you a solution. Are there any dialog boxes that pop up when you try to shut down the laptop? What operating system are you running? Are you experiencing any other problem with the laptop (multiple problems are related more often than you might think).

SOURCE: my dell inspiron 1545 won't

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

Dell inspiron 1545 overheat


When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

When I close my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop, it always shuts down, even when I set it to sleep mode. This causes Windows to shut down incorrectly among other problems.


Check your computer bios settings. There is a power managment section. Turn off power managment or set it to os controled. Check dells support site for any acpi drivers that you may need. These are needed for suspending controls.

Hope this helps.
