  1. No, there is not. It sounds as if the PSU or the Motherboard went bad (or alternatively, the GPU). I'm assuming the laptop is no longer in warranty?
  2. Because Dell ripped you off :(

    No it's not under warranty! So it looks like it's going to be an expensive fix?
  4. Depends on whats wrong with it, cost of spare parts, and the person who fixes it. It can range from cheap to expensive.
