Laptop Boots up. then turns off.


Last night my device was perfectly fine, however when I woke up and turned it on this morning the fan was really loud and kept staying loud for long periods of time.

Now it sometimes stays on for around 15 minutes but then "clicks" off. After that, I am not able to boot up for around 5-10 minutes. One thing that I did notice was that the fan temperature (on the left of the device) wasn't warm however the speed of the fan was extremely fast, and loud.

This is the first time that this has happened to me and I am really confused.

Any suggestions on what I should do?

Thanks for your help in advanced.

Try using diagnostics to determine if the fan is the problem or if some other component is failing. To get into Diagnostics, hit F10 when you see the Dell Logo and choose Diagnostics. Diagnostics usually will do a check of all components or you can choose a particular component to test, start with the basic check for all components and if all the diagnostic routine pass then try the comprehensive mode.

Dell warranty is usually a year but there is an extension, you can go to the Dell website to confirm your warranty. If it is still in warranty then call Dell Tech support and they will diagnose it and dispatch a tech with a part within a few days (usually next day)
