Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
I've opened up the laptop and checked the connections to the fan. Seem to be fine. Nothing looks melted around the area too.
The m2000 keeps shutting down after about 30 mins of work. I guess this has to do with the heat that is not dissipating.
I've tried "speedfan" .. not much use as it doesnt detect any fan anyway. Any idea how to check when the fan is the problem. Couldn't see any settings in the BIOS too.
Any idea how to check when the fan is the problem?
It appears your CPU is overheating and is shutting down.
Does the fan spin at all when the laptop is switched on?
The fan could be faulty, if it does not spin freely.
To test the fan, try removing it and connect it to a 12 volt DC power supply, if the fan spins fast then it is OK and the fault is on the laptop, possibly the power supply to the fan. In this case you need professional help.
If the fan appears OK then the problem could be insufficient too old heat sink compound between the CPU and the heatsink. You will need to remove the fan and heatsink and the old compound and put some fresh heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink and reassemble the fan/heatsink.
