    Dell Laptop turns itself off

    My 5-yr old Inspiron 2650 has taken to zapping out every few days. Is the end near? Is there a software glitch going on or a short?

    It sounds to me like it is a heat issue.
    Make sure that the air vents are free from debris, which is normally dust.
    You might want to consider investing in a laptop cooler.
