I have replaced mother board and LCD of my Inspiron N5010. After replacement, it started to shut down constantly, usually 5-10 min after start up. I have run diagnostics, it showed error 2000-0413 (LCD cable not detected), but could not finish all diagnostic process, cause it shut down again during CPU memory test.
Is it possible that because of this error computer shut downs then working or it is two separated problems? Can it be that only cable connector causing error or it is a defect of new mother board?
is there something wrong with the f21 bios? my dv5t shuts down after 20 minutes of use after I flashed it in. To top it off, the only reason i installed it was because a hp csr guy said it would increase battery life!
I have dell inspiron n4110 laptop. Every time i boot the system it takes 20 to 30 mins. But after booting my system works fine with out any hang. But booting alone it takes very long time even i formatted my system and tried. So i ran the diagnostics i got the below error
Error Code 200-01 42
Msg: Hard Drive 0 - S/N 5WS2Q5WB, self test unsuccessful. Status = 7
New inspiron 14z. It seems that the fan is very noisy almost all the time the computer is on. It gets louder and softer according to what programs are open, but it's never really quiet.The real fun starts, however, once she opens a graphics-intensive program . The computer gets so hot it's hard to touch it, and after a while it'll just shut down itself without any warning.Is this a common issue with the Inspiron 14z? What should we do?
My laptop will randomly turn off. I don't think that it is overheating because sometimes it just shuts off like 1 minutes after i turn it on. I don't feel any heat coming from the fan or anything. When it turns off it doesn't go through the shutdown process it just turns off. Iv'e tried a factory reset and a complete virus/malware scan.
new dell inspion 3421 running windows 7,64 bit. my laptop does not shut down completely. When I shut it down, it logs off screen goes black and still the fan is running and the front power light LED is on. I have to long press to power button to completely turn it off.
The same happens even in case I out the laptop to sleep or hibernate.
I have a problem with my 15R. It shuts down "for no reason". Right now it takes him up to 20 s to shut down so there's no time for any diagnostic software:
it shutdown in BIOS too it shutdown with battery only and AC only it shutdown with HDD, CD, SD card reader, WIFI... and everything else that was unpluggable it DOES NOT shutdown without RAM it shutdown with any combination of my 2 RAM DIMMs after a long break it needs ~20 s to shutdown, 10 after a short break
I suspect it's a thermistor as the fan makes a lot of noise even in BIOS. So my question is - what could be the problem and where are 15R thermistors located so I could check if they are fine.
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.

Every time I try to play games, such as Terrarria, The Hidden, Half Life 2, Killing Floor, etc.my computer shuts down. I make it about 5-10 minutes into a game, and it just shuts off. It might be overheating, but I keep my computer elevated, and theres good ventilation. My computer never used to do this. What could it be?
I have a dell Inspiron n5050. It was a hand down from my dad who hardly used, only used it for check his work schedule. Well it was working for years and then I was playing games like league of legend, sims etc. It never shut down till I maybe late 2014. I would turn it on, everything is all good, I can log in. But maybe 5-10 maybe more minutes of being on, it goes black or a message comes up saying "the instruction at referenced memory at could not be written " I don't know what is happening or what I done wrong. I can't get a new laptop or anything due to money issues at the moment.
I have a new Dell Inspiron 15R SE (7520) with Windows 8 having issues shutting down and waking up from sleep.
When I go to the Charms bar -> Click settings -> Power -> Shutdown , the laptop seems to start the shutdown process , the screen turns off but it seems to stay on (Power button, activity leds on). No matter how much time I wait it will not shutdown and I have to long-press the Power button to do a hard shutdown.
In the Windows Event Viewer I see the following Critical Error:
Critical (kernel power, event ID 41): The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
Same problem when I close the lid, the computer will not come back from Sleep.
Strangely enough, I created a shortcut button on my desktop for faster shutdown that works perfectly: C:WindowsSystem32shutdown.exe /s /t 0
I wanted to check here before I did a re-install as most of the information I have found on Google people just seem to end up fixing it re-installing.
I purchased Dell Inspiron N5110 last December, last one year i didn't got any problem with the laptop ,but once warranty got expired i got the problem like monitor display got damaged( which as rectified) ,
After that from past couple of days I am getting like 3 beep sounds from my laptop while start of my laptop and when shutdown of my laptop, why am getting three BEEP sounds from my laptop..
I have a 1525 laptop that wants to stay awake most of the time. I have it set to hibernate when the cover closes. It behaves most of the time, but occasionally it decides to restart instead of hibernating. When it's acting up, it will do the restart if you try to put it in hibernation, sleep or if you try to shut it down. The only way to kill the thing is to do a hard shutdown using the power button. It's annoying to say the least, since you can't just close it and walk away. If it restarts with the cover closed, it gets way too hot.
My laptop model is Dell inspiron n5010 (2011) . It was running fine until today when suddenly while I played game it started lagging, first I thought that probably I run too many app but I ran task manager and saw that my cpu is 100 % and led lamp for hdd is always on. I restarted and saw that right after I click the button the led is on. I ran defrag disk twice.
my N5010 won't turn on. I've tried removing the battery and power cable and starting independently of each other....no joy. When I push he start button it beeps 3 times, there will be a pause of maybe 10 seconds and will beep 3 times again. This cycle repeats. The screen just stays black.
Battery drained on my laptop. I did not notice that it was not charging. I purchased a new charger cord, but it would not charge. The laptop shut off and will not come back up. When I press the power button, the power button flashes on, three lights flash on front, you can hear either the hard drive or fan start up but then it all goes off. Do I need a new battery?
after a long ordeal that included, crashes and vertical lines, faulty nvidia card, technician coming home, heat sink being stucked, endless chats with Dell representatives, laptop going to the depot, getting motherboard and heat sink replaced, etc... I just got my laptop back yesterday.
After experiencing certain familiar symptons (again!), I decided to run Rthdribl... After just 2 mins, the GPU temp (measured with CPUID Hardware Monitor) rose to 95C very fast! I got scared and stopped it there (so who knows if it could get even higher).
I guess this is not normal, and that I may have gotten another faulty video card, right?
Inspiron N5010 does nothing when power button pressed, if power cord is attached then blue charging light goes out indicating that power unit has been overloaded and tripped out. If power lead is unplugged from laptop and mains supply, then plugged into mains again power is restored to adaptor and blue light on lead lights up again. Using Dell manual I have stripped laptop down to component parts. If mains adaptor is plugged into I/O board then charging light on lead remains lit. When motherboard ( including CPU ) is remounted onto I/O board, when mains adaptor is plugged in charging light goes out. Motherboard does not show any burnt area's or signs of damage to any component. Tried all versions of static discharge to laptop before stripping down without success. If the only solution is to replace Motherboard how can I order. The existing board includes 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD550v Graphics. The laptop is out of warranty.
I have a Inspiron 15 Intel (N5010) laptop with Win7 64bit. when I start my computer with headphones plugged in and then unplug them, no sound comes from the speakers. If I start the laptop with headphones unplugged then there is no problem (also, when I start with the unplugged, then plug the headphones in and then unplug, the sound from the speakers is ok).
I installed the latest audio drivers and codecs. But now that I think of it, I installed latest network drivers from dell site. I have a TOSHIBA MK6461GSYN hard drive and I wonder where could I check if there is a newer firmware available? Checked Toshiba site and they had some update program but that needed a floppy drive.
My laptop had been acting funny in the last few weeks. In some cases it would give a quick blue screen then restart. In order to fix that, I attempted to do a system restore with the Dell Factory Image. However, I received the "Bootmgr is missing" upon the system rebooting. Are there any solutions out there that do not require a Windows 7 re-installation disk, I do not have one. If the solution does require a DVD, where can I order one. My laptop is only two years old, so I do not believe that the hard drive is dying.
I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 and about one year ago it starting booting slowly. I created a second partition and installed a vanilla Windows 7 on it and booted into it and it still boots slowly.I've tried every form of optimization that various sites, including you, have told other people in forums. Drivers, defragmentation, chmod, and various other things I can't remember.
It takes about 3-5 minutes for a cold boot and about 9 minutes from hibernation. Sleep mode works normally.I don't know what the issue could be. There's only two more things I have not done: backup and reformat the whole drive and update bios.I have recorded me starting my laptop in safe-mode to show that the drivers load very slowly: URL...
Dell inspiron n 5010. Was using it, and suddenly went off. I try putting it on, but it shuts down, every 10 seconds, whether in bios mode, diagnostic mode or booting mode. I start it and it says repair windows, enter, and it shuts down again within 10 seconds.
