Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Laptop Turns Itself Off - Possibly Overheating?

Aug 23, 2011

I have a inspiron 1545 laptop, and every now and then randomly it turns itself off. I think it's overheating, but don't know how to adjust the fan speeds (if you can) and i took the back off and cleaned round the fan, so it's not blocked up. It might be something else causing it to turn off i'm not too sure.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Shutting Off Randomly But Isn't Overheating

Jan 18, 2015

My wife's Inspiron 1545 from late 2008 is having a new issue wherein it is randomly shutting off but not due to heat.  The computer will shut off when not connected to AC power randomly.  Sometimes it will last 10 minutes, other time 40.  What's odd the is computer reads anywhere from 50% - 85% battery life left.  

I'm certain it's not overheating because it doesn't get hot.  Also,I disassembled rear cover and reset the CPU cooler with new thermal paste as a precaution yet the problem persists.

I ran the boot hardware diagnostic test all the way through with no errors.  The harddrive has no audible clicking/crunching which usually indicates an HDD headed south.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Overheating - Fan Literally Stopped Spinning

Sep 9, 2012

I have had a Dell Inspiron 1545 For 3 years now and Last year the motherboard failed so i had that replaced. 3 of my battery chargers have broken. My Battery Lasts a couple of seconds, Left Mouse stuck in and wont work sometimes. But the main problem is overheating recently the fan literally stopped spinning, it made some weird sounds like clashing and now it doesn't spin AT ALL. My Laptop lasts 30 minutes before overheating and turning off. Another Problem is my wireless networks!?? Sometimes my wireless networks disappear they literally disappear! it cant detect wireless signals so i have to restart my computer to fix it!

Dell Inspiron 17R :: When Start Laptop Logo Flashes On Screen And Turns Blank

Apr 17, 2013

I am currently using windows 8 as my OS. When I attempt to start my laptop the Dell logo flashes on the screen and the screen turns blank/black and sits there for a few min before displaying an empty bar and F12 Boot Options in the bottom right hand corner.

I have attempted to press F12 to try and load windows in safe mode but everything is frozen at this point.

Is there a way to determine if its a hardware issue or windows issue. When I searched for the issue I found some with a similar issue but the link provided for support was no longer valid

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Laptop Would Not Power Up - No Light?

Jan 16, 2015

This is a late 2008 build Dell Inspiron 1545, sold retail in December 2010.

Pentium dual core T4500, 2.3 GHz

Has been in irregular use as a spare machine, mains adapter only, battery  removed.  My house was struck by lightning over a year ago and adapter damaged.  Replaced adapter and no further issue until now.

Laptop would not power up, no light.  Tested adapter and tried another 2 adapters - still no power up.  Replaced original adapter and plugged in depleted battery - powered up but had to press F1.  Powered up with no issue with good battery.  Once powered up the laptop seems to be charging battery OK.  Guessed this was a power board issue but no change when replacement fitted.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Laptop Won't Turn On But Beeps Loudly

Jan 28, 2013

I am having troubles with my dell inspiron 1545. It has been working fine, but I just tried to switch it on, and it won't boot. After pressing the 'on' button, the cd drive flashes and makes a noise, like it normally does when I switch the laptop on. Then nothing happens for a whole minute, and then a loud repetitive beep starts. It's 4 beeps in a row, which then gets repeated. I have let the beep continue, but it doesn't seem to stop, unless I either press the 'on' button again or take the battery out.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Cpu Has Been Overheating And Eventually Causing Laptop To Shut Off

Oct 29, 2011

 I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with a Intel Celeron Processor and the past year my cpu has been overheating and eventually causing my laptop to shutoff. This happens a lot quicker if playing graphics intensive games or playing youtube videos. I want a processor that can handle playing games and videos.

Also, one thing I was thinking was that maybe a fan stopped working that is causing the CPU to over heat but when I run a Dell diagnostic no errors come up about a fan not working, so I'm thinking I just need to upgrade.

Below is my System info:

System ModelInspiron 1525System TypeX86-based PCProcessorIntel(R) Celeron(R) CPU
560 @ 2.13GHz, 2128 Mhz, 1 Core(s), 1 Logical Processor(s)
Socket 479 mPGA
Motherboard model OU990C Chipset Intel GM965
BIOS Version/DateDell Inc. A16, 10/16/2008SMBIOS Version2.4

I have to upgrade the CPU in the Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Laptop Not Starting Past Startup Repair - No OS Installed

Apr 12, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545. So, a few months ago, I got mad at my laptop and slammed the screen down. I think it was taking its sweet time shutting down or something. I can't remember. Anyway, the next time I tried to turn it on, it goes into Startup Repair, and then comes up with a screen of errors, namely "StartupRepairOffline", "Autofailover", "NoOSInstalled". I can go into advanced options and go into DOS command (it comes up to the X drive); I was able to successfully pull off stuff I wanted, but I'm thinking I damaged the hard drive. I've let this sit for awhile, using my daughters' laptop, but now I want mine back and want to repair it. What should I do first? Also, I don't think I have any startup disks or anything like that.

Dell :: Power Cord Light Turns Off When Plugged Into Laptop Short Circuit?

May 29, 2010

So last night my laptop was running fine on battery power, but then it was running low, so I plugged in the power cord. Nothing happened. Since the adapter at the laptop end was falling apart and duct-taped anyways, I figured it was just conking out, but then I saw the indicator light on the power brick was off.

With some experimentation, I found that if I moved it to a different outlet, the light would come back on, but if I plugged it into my laptop, the light would die, and I would have to again move it to a different outlet (the same one as first would work fine) to get the indicator light back on. It works in other Dell laptops. Other adapters do the exact same thing.

So I'm guessing there's a problem with my laptop wiring that's causing a short or something. (Apologies for my shallow electrical knowledge.) But it was working last night on battery power. Until the battery died completely this morning, it would power up. So it's not an electrical problem that kills the laptop.

Dell Latitude E4310 :: Green Light On Adapter Turns Off When Plug Into Laptop

Apr 5, 2013

I have a Dell E4310, about 2 years old. When I connect the charger just to a power socket the green light on the charger comes on but when I plug the other end into the laptop the green light on the charger goes off, I have taken the battery off the laptop and it still does the same thing, and in both cases the laptop will not power up and no light appears on it.

Dell XPS L502x :: Laptop Won't Boot / Fan Turns On / Spinning Continuously And Emitting Cold Wind

Sep 17, 2014

So I broke my laptop (xps l502x) while traveling. The hinges were broken so I couldn't open or close the lid. Dell has stopped supporting this model so I had to get my own parts and replace it.

After replacing, I realized that the screen turns on but is white and the motherboard beeps 8 times continually. I realized that was an issue with the lcd connector. I tried to fix the connection. Now the laptop turned on, booted. But I couldn't see anything on the screen. The screen was lit but displayed nothing, everything was black. Then I removed the lcd connector and put it back again. This time the laptop doesn't even turn on but fan turns on with a loud spinning sound and emits cold air continuously.

Acer :: Laptop Overheating, BAD! 80-90*C

Jan 6, 2009

I decided to run CUPID Hardware Moniter and Im getting AMD core temps of 80*C , GPU of 92 ! These are celcious! Like randomly I would hear a wirring sound in my laptop and everything would go soooooooo slowwwww , like huge lag spikes... Thats why I figured if I installed Vista x64 + got 4 gigs of ram it would fix it... but I think my problem is temperature... Besides cleaning out the fans how can I fix this?

I run my laptop 24/7, its my "desktop" It sits on wooden surface so theres no blockage of air flow?

Sony :: Vaio- If My Laptop Turns On, It Either Freezes, BSODs, Or Black Screens

May 17, 2009

If my laptop turns on, it either freezes, BSODs, or black screens (could be anywhere from the windows loading logo to doing some work on word, etc.)

And if it doesnt turn on, well it does; the hdd light goes on (for a second), same with the battery light (the battery light is fine though), but the screen is black; i can hear hdd activity though and if i throw a cd in there, it spins properly and whatnot, but it just doesnt do anything past the blank screen.

An external monitor doesnt work, and reformatting seemed to have helped abit, but then it just got worse 2 days ago; I can't get past the black screen after I turn it on.

I'm 99% sure its a hardware problem, and I'd be willing to replace whatever it is if I knew what it was, but I dont know if it's the hdd, or the ram, or the video card, etc.

I've also taken the laptop apart; so reseating the ram and hdd doesnt work.

HP ProBook 4530s Lockups :: Laptop On Hibernate Mode After Few Seconds Turns Back On By Itself

Jun 12, 2013

I have a HP ProBook 4530s, using Windows 7 64-bit OS, Intel Core i3-2310M CPU (2.10 GHz).My laptop is about 21 months old and I am facing some problems when puting my laptop into hibernate mode. Everything was fine for a long time - that is, when I put it in the hibernate mode it turned off and when I pressed the power on button it resumed. However, that isn't the case any longer.Now when I put it in the hibernate mode, it (usually) goes hibernating and after few seconds it turns back on (all by itself!). Sometimes it hibernates for 10 or 20 minutes (or even more) and then again, it turns back on all by itself!This problem just started occuring, I didn't install or update or do anything.

Dell XPS 15 L502x :: Laptop Overheating - CPU Temperature Starts At 50C And Rises Consistently

Dec 3, 2012

Essentially the issue is that the cpu temperature starts at 50C and rises consistently to around 79C on IDLE. GPU is around 55-60. This continues until eventually the computer shuts off for safety reasons. Needless to say, no strenuous activities can happen on this computer. (games, etc.)

Things I've done:

-Updated the chipset, both video drivers (nvidia and intel), and the bios
-Opened up the entire thing and cleaned out the fan and any other areas that had dust (which was little). 
-Removed the original thermal compound and reapplied a fresh and appropriate layer to the GPU AND CPU

Specs:

Windows 7 Professional, ACPI x64-based PC
Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00 GHz
Intel HD Graphics 3000
NVIDIA GeFore GT 525M

Lenovo Y410p P/Y/Z Series :: Sleep Mode Turns On / Kills Battery / Overheats Laptop

Oct 5, 2014

I've read other forums on similar issues, but I can't seem to find one that matches mine exactly.
 
System: Y410p with
1tb hdd
24gb ssd
intel i7-4700
8gb ram
64x windows 8.1 (came installed)
 
Problem:
When I put the computer into sleep mode, it goes into sleep mode without issue. It has stayed in sleep mode for a maximum of 8 hours, but usually before it hits this long the system will turn on. It seems to run random processes and overclock the processor as the computer gets very hot. It will do this until the battery dies, or if plugged in, indefinitely.
 
While it is doing this I have opened the lid, pressed every key, including power, with no response. Once, and only once, upon pressing the space bar, it had actually come to the unlock screen as though it truly was in sleep (except it was still overheating and on). Otherwise my only option is hard shut down.
 
I've just gone around it for a while now by shutting down every time and not using sleep. But today I had put it in sleep, and placed it in my backpack where it nearly cooked itself to death.I have tried:

-I have checked the wake_armed, which currently display NONE
-I have checked last_wake
-I have fiddled with hybrid shutdown.
