|1. Check the hardware. 2 Check the Power saving settings. 3. Check the health of the OS. |
1. Boot to your Dell Drivers & Utilities CD (if you have one) and run the Dell Diagnostics (usually a Blue & White CD in a paper sleeve).
If you don't have a CD, you can download the diagnostics from the Dell site and make a bootable CD or bootable floppies to run the tests.
2. Go into Control Panel and check your power saver settings.
3. Is the issue something else? Blue Screen Stop error? Power issue? If YES, be more specific.
Just another stupid saying...
