Re: Dell XPS L501X shutting down randomly
Could be a few things inc faulty HDD, mainboard or overheating.
First thing to do would be to give the vents a good clean out. You can use a can of compressed air to do this. Ensure you follow the instructions on the can and ensure the laptop is switched off and unplugged.
Then do a full diagnostics. Boot to F12 and choose diagnostics. Post back with results
