I have an
Inspiron 1420 Dell computer
32-bit operating system
2 gb RAM
Intel core 2 duo CPU @ 1.80 GHz
I am on the Dell reccomended power plan, which indicates equality between the use of battery and performance.
So here's my problem. I will leave my computer (plugged in or not doesn't seem to matter) alone for about 15-20 minutes. When I come back, the screen is black, and when I move the mouse, one of two things happens.
1. It stays black and I am forced to shutdown by holding down the power button
2. It goes back to whatever I was working on but then freezes- I can move the mouse around bu can't click on anything and am again forced to shutdown.
Anyone have any experience with this or know what to do? I've had some blue screens before as well.. I don't know if that is related or not.
I have absolutely no clue when it comes to computers... so I would appreciate any help.
Oh I wanted to add that I have tried ctrl alt delete, and that does not have any effect
