My Dell Studio 15 keeps shutting down. It just started today after copying some CD's to itunes. I thought it might be a virus problem and ran PC tools and McAfee and no virus's reported. I did get one report about upgrading Itunes software. When I did that, the PC automatically shut down as soon as it is loaded. Under MS Config I am not loading Itunes or apple software anymore but I am still having the problem. I can use internet, but when I go to use other programs, it immediately shuts down. I had skype running in the background and then watched a web video (secure site) and poof it shut down. I don't know what to try next. (FYI I purchased machine in 2009) and never had this before, unlike the newer Dells.

Is it running hot? Exhaust fans running?

Could be thermal issues, loose RAM, motherboard issue.

It could be a loose power connection too, either on the AC Adapter cable or the laptops motherboard power connector.

Is the battery good, does it charge?

Just another stupid saying...
