I have a 4 year old Dell XPS the monitor will shut down then the system after 10-15 minutes, then the entire system will shut down a few moments after. The power cord was replaced because I believed it was the issue since it 'fraid', however with the new power cord the same situation. Any thoughts? Thanks for you time...

I believe it's both, first the montor of the laptop shuts down then the computer, a couple minutes later... I have checked my 'power monitor' and again, the original powercord did fray, so I purchased a new one and the same situation with the monitor then computer/cpu/laptop. Thanks!

not with monitor you observe yourself performace of computor whether it is running too slow or getting hot accordingly pls check ram & power supply unit one of them might have faulty

Insted of replacing power cord you have to replace power supply unit
