    once i removed the panel from above the keyboard i could see the screws that held the keyboard in place once i removed these screws i could see the two screws holding the laptop together. once i did this the laptop came apart allowing me to clean the dust around the fan and rest of the computer. after i put it all back together tha laptop is running a lot cooler now. anybody that knows anything about computers can do this task it is not a professional job. it would help if you answered the questions people are asking you. my advice to you would be ask them what they are trying to do and how much they know about computers before you fob them off.

    thankyou Lee

Compaq presario 2100 shuts down but power light stays on and drains battery thanks

Try to press and hold the power button for about 5-10 seconds. If it does not respond, pull the battery out, and put it back in.

Over heating

This laptop is probably due for a deep cleaning. There is probably a dust build-up on the fan intake assembly that is not letting enough cool air into the laptop. You can try spraying it with compressed air, but it should be taken apart and cleaned.

My Compaq Presario F730US keeps overheating the fan does not run properly what docking station do you recommend me to buy

I would recommend cleaning out the vents and geatsink grills with compressed air. I would then remove the heatsink unnit and replace the thermal grease on the heatsink and processor. Most laptops do not need any additional cooling if thier heatsinks are free of dirt, dust and debris. The compressed air can be bought at office supply chains. Just use short bursts of air and clean all the compartments including the cd tray. Just make sure to power down the laptop first and remove the battery.

If you have never taken apart a laptop before, find someone who has.
It is fare to easy to brake the new lcd or but a wrong screw in bazel cover and brake more than what was broken.

Presario 2100

1. Remove the battery.

2. Check the power supply connector to make sure that the two prongs at the end are on either side of the pin, as you may not have enough power to fire the machine.

take the side panel off the case. remove the power supply cable (4 pin molex) Remove the data cable (flat cable) you might need to snap off the front cover. remove the screws that hold the cd in the tower.
