Hey Guys,
I have search the web alot but haven't found a solution yet.
i have same exact problem as this guys

If someone is too lazy to open the thread here is the quote from techenclave (second link) post.

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 ?

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.

the solution is to change the motherboard , heatsink and system fan.

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.
