    I have a Dell Inpiron with Vista. I have found that when doing a few operations, the computer will completely shut down, although not immediately. It happens when I am streaming video and also when converting video files to an mp4 format. Most other things don't seem to have that effect on it.

    Perhaps the laptop is overheating? Do you notice any heat whilst performing the tasks you mentioned?

    It doesn't seem to be any hotter than usual.

    Ive seen a lot of people with this problem talking about cleaning the inside of the laptop, have you done so recently? You can buy cans of compressed air which do the job.
