Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

The computer randomly turned itself off and won't respond.

I moved from one couch to another and when I sat down on the other couch the laptop turned itself off and now won't respond to anything. It won't turn on, there are no lights coming from any part of the laptop with the power cord plugged in or not plugged in.

Does the power adapter light come on when plugged in? Try a different outlet. If not power adapter is no good. Sounds most likely power adapter.

My laptop keeps turning off and on by itself non-stop, I dont know what to do. Why is it doing this?

Its possible it is you have it on a couch or your lap with a blanket? My computer has done that when it can't cool down enough....try putting it on a hard surface. Also check to make sure you hear your fan working...they do go out.

I would say just the screen. You may have to bend the metal a little on the edges if needed.

Randomly turns itself off.

This is the point that you should bring your computer into your nearest tech support center. There is probably a problem with your hardware because of its age, or some physical damage has happened to it. This will be around a 100 dollar fix.
