Inspiron 1501 unexpectedly shuts down and won't reboot

  1. I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop, and I have had problems with it for a while, a few months ago I had a problem with it not turning on, I was using it one day turned it off and the next time I went to use it, it would not turn on, this lasted a long time, and then one day it just turned on, it was fine for a while until a similar problem occurred, so I sent it in to get fixed and the motherboard was replaced, it worked fine for about a week or so and now I am having problems with it again, I was using it one day and I got a blue screen that I couldn't read because it was shaking up and down. The computer started up again right away, and then it started running memory tests on itself, and some system tests, the next time I turned it on, but while it was doing the system tests it shut off and I haven't been able to turn it back on since. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
