Hello, I have a Inspiron n5010 that I am having issues with. When I am using this laptop it will shut itself down randomly. I have ran the dell system diagnostic and that turned up nothing and said everything was fine but the problem is still occurring. I purchased the laptop 11/6/10 so it is out of warranty and I cannot find much online for solutions. I have noticed it does warm up (to about 90 degrees C) but that is normal and has happened since day one and I have ran multiple scans on my computer for viruses but again nothing is found so I am lost and am not sure what to do. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
Have you ever cleaned the dust out of the cooling system? Using compressed air, clean out the air intake and discharge. See if that fixes it.

Just a little bit of dust can insulate the cooling system and reduce its capacity to cool. Just spray it into the vents.
Do not stick the plastic nozzle into a spinning fan. You will break the fan blades.
Ok, I will try that out tomorrow and see how it goes. Thank you for the help.
