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.

Compaq Presario SR5402FH pc powers down, cpu fan failing


- Clean the CPU Fan with blower.
If while performing any step cpu goes to 100% then it seems problem can be due to hidden background running services, so i would suggest you to disable them with the help of Reginout, download it.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

The fan has a third wire, that is used to tell the uProcessor that it is spinning and in some cases how fast.

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.

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.

IE7 flashes briefly when I click on it and then goes away


Hi,

This usually happens after installation. 1. Click START–>RUN and type cmd
2. At the prompt, type cd and press ENTER
3. Type cd Program Files and press ENTER
4. Type cd Internet Explorer and press ENTER

5. Type regsvr32 IEPROXY.DLL
6. You should get a confirmation that the IEPROXY.DLL has been registered. You can then close all windows and try Internet Explorer again.
If these steps don’t solve the problem, try

Launching IE with add-ons disabled:
1. Click START–>RUN
2. Type iexplore -extoff
You can also create a shortcut so that you can always run Internet Explorer this way.
1. Right-click on the Desktop
2. New–>Shortcut
3. Enter in iexplore -extoff

Hope this helps

Wont start up


my wife has a presario that had a similar problem - it would boot up, then immediately shut down. I took off the side plate and blew off some of the dust inside. that worked for a couple of days then the symptoms returned. I took it apart again but this time I removed the cpu fan and the cpu heat sink. I cleaned all the **** off the fan and the heat sink and replaced it. this time it stayed on. I checked out the power supply. compaq installed a very cheap power supply - only 250 watts. a replacement power supply for the same machine but with an output of 300 watts is available. as soon as I can scrape up the change, I'm gonna change the PS
