Hi
I have a dell inspiron 1525 that keeps shutting down. I had the hard drive replaced and since then it keeps shutting down,but only when I am using programs that have alot of graphics...Can't play games or watch movie, but it is fine when using facebook, or any word processing software...Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening??

Check the CPU temp using HW Monitor

What Video card do have in it?
If HWMonitor lists it give the temp for the GPU also.

Is that 68c as in Celsius and not F Fahrenheit correct?

If it is it's too warm, either the heat sink has come loose on the CPU or or was removed and reinstalled without replacing the thermal paste.

Thanks..I guess there is nothing that I can do to fix it on my own....Is there any way to figure out which it is..without taking it apart??

No not without taking it apart, another thought, is the fan running blowing warm air out of the vent?

It probably wouldn't hurt to pop open the case, and blow out any dust with a can of compressed air if you haven't already done so. You can get that at any office supply store.(office depot, staples, walmart, etc)
