Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
I recently upgraded my armada e500 hard drive from a 12gb to a 40gb hard drive. Everything runs fine -- for about an hour that is. After an hour my laptop shuts down and when I try to boot it back up it will power on and immediately shut down. Do you think my laptop is overheating? After I let it sit for awhile -- maybe 30 minutes -- I can go back and use it for awhile again. Any ideas what the problem may be, and if it is overheating is there any solution at all to my problem (that allows me to continue to use the 40gb drive)? Thank You
When you say "shuts down" do you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) or does it just shut down without an error message? It definitely sounds like overheating. Try using a laptop cooler, something like this: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/antec_notebook_cooler.php (I'm not saying you should buy that model necessarily, there are many such coolers). They can make a huge difference.
