i have a dell inspiron 1150 running windows xp home edition and i belive has service pack 1a installed on it.
my problems is this:
I will go to turn on my computer and sometimes it will turn on, and other times, it won't. When it does, sometimes the fan will turn on but the monitor won't or vice-versa. If the computer does turn on, everything will start to load, then it will turn off. Sometimes, the computer works perfectly, the OS boots properly, and everything seems fine. Then, a great deal of time might go by, and the computer will just randomly turn off, but the fan will still be running, but the monitor won't be.
needless to say, this is a very annoying problem
thanks in advance
