Compaq NX6120 - heat issue computer shutting down without warning

My computer appears to be getting hot and shuting itself down without warning. Have had checked and doesn't shut down at service centre - probably their airconditioning. Running it sitting on a cake rack is helping but is there something better or do I need to replace a part or can I do domething to laptop to improve? Started happening this summer. Is there a special heat sink or something suitable?

All you can do short of upgrading the fans is to either buy a laptop cooling pad or make sure when you are using it that all vents are free. Hope this helps.

I am uable to listen any type of sound from speaker and in device manager it is not showing option of enable disable it is showing only hardware scan and properties


Shut the computer down and remove the sound card, restart the computer without a sound card installed then shut it down again. Re-install the sound card and make sure the monitor is connected before you restart. The computer should have seen the card and loaded the correct driver. If you are still having problems shut down and restart in safe mode and troubleshoot.

Have to download sound card how


If you are trying to download drivers for the soundcard on your Compaq, I will give you the Compaq support site. From there you put in the model number of your computer in the test box, then it will ask you what Operating system you have, once you choose the operating system, a list of drivers will appear. Scroll down to the Audio driver, download and install.

C300 Switches off


The Compaq C300 laptop most likely is overheating and shutting down (ie thermal overload) and will not bootup again until it has cooled down. If this is not fixed eventually the CPU will fail.
The overheating is caused by a faulty fan and/or dust clogging the heatsink and fan assembly.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely (replace the fan if it is faulty) and use a stiff brusk to loosen the dust from the fan and heatsink and vacuum the dust from the fan and heatsink.
If you remove the fan assembly from the CPU then apply fresh thermal paste to the heatsink pad before placing it over the CPU.
The laptop should be placed on a flat surface so the vents are not obstructed. You can also place the laptop on a fan assisted base to provide additional cooling.

No sound


Enter your details on this website, download and install the driver

http://www.soundblaster.com/language.asp?sDestUrl=/support/downloads

Make sure that your other drivers are in too.

Right click My Computer
Click Manage
Click Device Manager
Make a note of any devices that appear with a warning symbol and look them up on google. All drivers must be installed after a re-install of Windows for the computer to work correctly.

There is no sound


Audio drivers for this, for Windows XP, are listed here -

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=366264&lang=en

Now, you stated there was no Audio device listed in the device manager. Are there and PCI Devices or Multimedia devices listed under the OTHER DEVICES section in the device manager?? Possibly with a yellow question mark listed next to them?? If so, then that may be your audio device, and the link above will send you to the correct page for XP drivers for your machine.

If there are no OTHER DEVICES listed, and nothing with a yellow question mark in the device manager, then it may be a hardware issue. Could be that the audio is turned off in the bios, or simply just bad. For which, the fix, would be just installing a PCI sound card.

Hope this helps, if not, let me know if you need further assistance.
