My friend has a Dell Inspiron N5010. Unfortunately it is out of warranty now.



The problem is that the laptop just simply powers off within 15-20 seconds of powering it on.



- It's not a hard disk issue since no matter where I am it will power off, even if in the BIOS.

- I have tried using only 1 ram stick and using it in each slot, no change. Though I haven't checked using a different ram stick, I doubt both of the sticks would go bad suddenly.

- I had disassembled the whole thing and reapplied thermal paste on the CPU/GPU heatsink. The fan works fine. No use.

- I tried to boot into the Dell diagnostics menu and it passes a few tests before powering off.



Is there anything else I can do? The only option I can think of now is to give it to Dell. They'll charge quite a lot just for checking and then whatever the costs for replacing what's gone bad.


I tried same thing this guy did before i found his post !!
Reallt my laptop isn't overheating and i had cleaned all the vents and dust from my lappy today!
These seems to be very common problem but there is no solution Afaik.

Please help me ?
Pardon my poor grammer please

The problem you have is a component when it is power up the heat inside make it defective. It could be any component in the supply circuit, only a technician could find the defective component.

I had same problem. I cleaned vents on bottom and side with compressed air and immediately noticed a dramatic temp drop and no more shut downs. give it a try. Cheers.

Hi,

I am also using Insprion N5010 and faced the same heat,shutdown issue.

This model is one of the failure from DELL and faced this issued 3 times in last 3 years

Dudes !

I've the same problem with Inspiron N5010. There's no solution except throwing away this piece of crap as it happened to be a great failure from Dell for this very model. The root cause is it's heating up problem which sucks the power system ultimately.

hey sorry for the late reply , i had the same problem but i didnt do anything regarding the heat transfering paste on the gpu or the cpu, i just cleaned the heat sink on the fan as it was filled with cotton like dirt or what ever that was, and i know for sure if u have anything wrong with the rams the laptop will beep look it up on google. so just cleaned up the heat sink,
and iam right now using the same laptop,

hope this is usefull

The weird thing is when I run a live linux OS from a CD it stays on no issues, its only when I run Windows does it shut off. I am going to upgrade to Windows 10 to see if that fixes the issue.
