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,
