Making technology work for you
Many people complain that their Dell laptop shuts down all of a sudden. There are many issues for this problem. Here are the main reason and the basic troubleshooting steps that can be carried out to fix this issue as soon as possible.
This is one of the most causes of shut down issues in your Dell Laptop. Check if there is any dust or residue in the air vents and your laptop is getting proper ventilation for airflow. Another reason for your laptop to overheat is due to outdated BIOS. Install and update the BIOS from expert Dell help.
If you have installed any hardware recently, then your computer might turn off unexpectedly. Check for any updates from the Device Manager and install them on your computer so that your hardware is able to communicate with your computer properly. If there are no updates, then you should remove the hardware and check whether it is compatible with your computer or not.
If you have not installed any hardware, then remove any unwanted hardware from your Dell laptop like modem, sound card or network card. Check which card is causing problems and replace it.
Viruses can be another reason for frequent shutting down of your Dell laptop. Check for any viruses by deeply scanning your laptop with the help of an anti-virus program. You can even ask for Dell help from certified technical executives.
