Hello Out There I have a Dell Studio 1537 that had Windows Vista So i upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate With No Issues. I noticed that randomly the machine would just shut down with no warning i disconnected the USB hard drive and mouse and it did the same. My last resort was using it off the battery and never shut down. I checked the charger and its not a factory dell charger its a replacement. Once i plug it in the machine shuts down. If i get a genuine Dell Charger will that resolve the issue?

Did it do this while using Vista, and what happened to the original charger?

It also shuts down when you plug the A/C adapter in?

It if is shutting down when you connect USB devices look inside the port and see if any pins are bent or if the port has any damage? It sounds like the board is getting shorted out.
