Hi, im new on here but have used the site many times when looking for solutions to my problems.

 

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 (win 7) which ran out of battery and shut down as normal. When i went to restart it it said that it could not restore the session so i could try again or delete the data and start again. I initially went for the restore (twice) but it failed to load up, causing the machine to abruptly shut down. I the decided to use the delete session and start again option which again, did not work and led to the machine abruptly shutting down.

 

I started the machine up again and was prompted to runthe startup repair software which again caused an abrupt shutdown. I managed to start in safe mode which lasted for 5 mins but again shut down abruptly.

 

On the last start up i got a blue screen saying something about a serious error, it only stayed on screen for 20 secs or so so i couldnt write it down.

 

I cant do anything as the machine shuts down anytime up to 5 mins after powering on - never getting windows 7 running.

 

The fan is also running constantly and appears to be working very hard.

 

I have not installed any new software (to the best of my knowledge)

 

Is it a HDD problem? or something else?

 

Can anyone please shed some light as to why this is happening and suggest a fix if possible. I need my computer back!!!

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Dan.

Hello! One small thought! Is your fan running and when is the last time you cleaned your vents??

Yes, fan is working and vents appear to be clear / clean. Have just given them a good "blow" out for good measure.

 

Thanks for the reply.

I left everything shutdown for an hour and then I ran the startup repair and this time it ran through and completed. Strange......

 

Wonder how long it will last?

I just went through a similar instance of the fan working overtime (extremely loud)...finally decided to check my CPU temperature via Speccy and saw that the system was overheating.  Removed the CPU heatsink/fan, replaced the thermal compound...temps went back down to upper 30s, fan resumed normal near-quiet functioning.

 

You may want to check your CPU temperature against the suggested max operating range...the cpu-world.com website has reliable temp info for many CPUs.
