Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook

Compaq Presario R3150US shuts down with IE7, cpu usage goes up

This has started mostly after changing from IE6 to IE7.  After running IE7 for a while, cpu usage will go up to 100% and the system will lock up.  It really happens fast when I try to stream music from aolradio.com or xm radio online.  It used to work fine.  I should have plenty of ram at 1.25 gigs, and the processor is Pentium 4 2.8ghz.  I have done everything I can think of as far as cleaning cache, defragmenting, etc.  
It actually locked up a few minutes ago, when cpu usage was only 2 to 5%.  I have Trend Micro Internet Security, which I thought was supposed to keep spyware, malware, etc. out of the system.
Any help appreciated.

    Thanks, I think I was up to date on service packs for IE6, but not positive.  I already tried to uninstall IE7, but in Add/Remove programs, when I look at the Windows IE7 entry, there is no "Remove" button there to click on.  So, I don't know how to uninstall IE7.

Have you inatalled the latest service pack before you upgraded to IE7?
If not, suggest you un-install IE7, install the service pack, reboot computer and then upgrade to IE7.
If IE7 causes you problems the revert back to IE6.

    Try Restore Point, pick a restore point prior to a date before you installed IE7.

What's your problem?It's stuck on logging off


There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

Why is my computer overheating only after 10 minutes


There are several possible causes - these are the 3 most common:

1. The fan is broken - can you hear it running?
2. You are running too much background software

Open "Task Manager" and select the "Performance" tab. If the CPU usage is constantly at a high level (80-100%) you may have too many background applications running. Next click on the "Performance" tab and look at the CPU column. See which processes are using lots of CPU power.

3. You have a virus/malware. Reboot in safe mode and run a virus scanner.

Screen is black, but fan runs. Then computer cuts


This most often means you have a bad cpu or motherboard. When the bios does its post checks it looks for issues and will shut the pc down if all the devices are not funtioning correctly or the CPU reaches critical heat.

Shut down itself


Hi i'm Rain.
If your Laptop is over heating you may need to look into a stronger type of cooling system { Fan }
But for now lets set up your power Options settings
to try to keep your CPU cool.
In power options select Power Saver.
If you see the selection to keep the fan running select it also. save and exit.
Hopefully this will help to keep your system cool until you can service it.

My CPU usage is constantly a hundred percent.


When system boots click start button > run > type in box "msconfig" without quotation marks. Click on "selective startup" Go up to the startup tab > click on disable all. Click on apply and ok, reboot. When computer reboots, see if the processor is still running at a hundred %, if not then one of your start up processes is the culprit. You can go back into msconfig and check just those processes that you absolutely need to start up, like a third party wireless controller, anti-virus, malware/spyware, etc., but most of those startup processes you dont need to boot up.

Compaq Presario F700 Laptop power up issue


Remove your cpu/gpu heatsink, apply a ermal bonding, this will prevent shut off because of cpu/gpu overheating(chipset detects temperature faulty in the firsts seconds of operating your laptop), if this didnt resolve your problem, naybe and issue with your Mobo.

My HP Compaq Presario v2000 has new mobo, new CPU


You probably put more than a pin-head size drop of heat grease compound on CPU, thus "bleeding" over on the CPU, effectively overheating processor (very common). In any event, your problem is overheating -that's *the* place to look for now.

Internet explorer canot display web page? ---winxp pro/ desktop computor


I found lots of problem with Ie7,what I personal do is
1.I have a second option for my Browser, that is I install mozilla
firefox.I use it for my default browser.You can download it here
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

2.I downgrade my IE7 to IE6 by going to ADD/Remove program
and uninstall IE7.After that your IE7 will become IE6
** Windows default is IE6,if you uninstall IE7,your system will become IE6 Automatically.

Best is to try the first step,I think this will help to solve your problem.
Takecare.
