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 for posting..
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.
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:
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.
Dear sir, I purchased a new laptop compaq presario c700. When I tried to install os it is booting from cd but it is not recognising harddisk. I checked in BIOS but I didn't find the option where to find harddisk. So please provivide the solution
