Help! My wife's laptop hasn't been working right for a few days now. She turns it on, it sounds normal at first, she gets the screen displaying the Dell logo...sometimes it says "Resuming Windows" and there's the Windows logo. Then she gets what sounds like a small chirp from inside the computer and it shuts down. She goes through this 5-7 times before it finally starts.
If she's away from the computer for a while, when she opens it up again, it shuts down.
She called Dell and they want her to open the laptop. Neither one of us are very technically inclined enough to tinker with computer components.
Is there anything we can try, short of sending it in for repairs, that might fix it?
