Try to boot the windows installation DVD/USB and do a startup repair. After that, if it goes into windows, to a chkdsk on C:\ to see if there are any bad sectors on the disk.

There is nothing about the HDD malfunction or related chkdsk issues. This behaviour is DELL only netbooks problem and is not documented. I have DELL inspiron 1122 , 450 netbooks with the same problem. When you close the lead and within a minute or two, it comes back. My opinion is that this is the Video driver. Searching for a patch, I haven't find any that does exist or solves the problem.

Me gain! You install the latest chipset driver V.1.2.1.296 from the DELL website. Then you install Video driver V.8.861 and then you install Monitor driver.
All the drivers will be decompress by default on C:\DELL (the rivers when run, will create these folders and decompress files in it).

Monitor driver to be installed is a bit different as it has only .inf file!

How to: Computer -> Properties -> Device Manager-> Monitors -> rclick on the generic driver-> Update driver software ->Browse my computer for driver software -> Browse ->
You point to the C: \DELL location where the Monitor inf file is located and follow the prompt! INF file will be selected automatically!
At the end if installed successfully, the right driver will be shown in the list of Monitors.

It is tested and works!

Well wait, Im having the same problem.
Do you do all these functions in safe mode?
Booting up normal ends up black screen,
Administration page normal log in ok, the next log in everything still looks normal log in ok, then black screen. When I shut it down with the power key my normal desktop flashes for a second then, shutdown.
