Want to Find DC Power Connections on Compaq C700 Laptop

I have a Compaq C700 laptop that overheats. The OS I'm running takes over the control of the fan from BIOS.  The fan just cycles on and off, turning on at 100% capacity for a few seconds once every minute or two. 
This is not enough cooling for the processor and it is getting burning hot... hot enough to cause logic faults and make the computer crash.
I need to locate a DC power bus/connection that is live when the computer's power is turned on inside the machine, but that goes dead when the computer is turned off.  For instance, a USB port, the motherboard's DC supply, or the DC supply of the LCD would all work.  
Can anyone show me where one of these points would be that I can use to hard-wire my fan to, so the fan runs all the time the computer is on?  
Thank you,

    Well, I appreciate the post, but there is absolutely no information here at all.  

    Anyone can assemble links to corporate websites for various companies like this person did.  I could have done that in less than 30 seconds. 

    This is an inappropriate answer to a technical question by someone with no technical experience.  How can I tell?  They give links to drivers, as if drivers can solve a hardware question.  Weak.

    I solved my own problem by soldering the fan to the USB's VCC and GND pins so it comes on whenever the laptop is powered up.

My laptop compaq c700 used to connect to my projector until it was formatted and reinstall the same OS but now it can't display when i connect it to the projector, can your please help me?

Two possible solutions here:
1) Get the newest driver from Compaq for your laptop video card.
2) There may be a software for controlling how your video outputs that would have come with the laptop originally. This should also be available from compaq.

Compaq presario c700 all driver wanted

If you are purchasing the laptop from a retailer, there will most likely be a disk with the laptop (sometimes called a Restoration Disk) that contains everything that will wipe the hard drive and reinstall everything so it is back to how it left the manufacturer. If it didn't come with any disks, I have found:

Just click the exact model, then OS and then they will give you a list of (I think) all the drivers you should need for a Compaq Presario c700.

Download driver for Compaq PresarioC700

I understand that you are unable to install Audio drivers in your Notebook.

This model of Presario has an audio controller that supports the high definition audio. You need to have Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio installed on the computer before installing the audio driver.

Here is the weblink to install UAA drivers.

Please do not click on the link. Copy and paste it in a new Internet Explorer window.

After installing UAA drivers restart the Notebook and then install Audio drivers.

Here is the weblink to install Audio drivers.

After installing the drivers restart the Notebook to get the changes effect.

I hope this will resolve the issue.
