    It's only shut off on me once so far, but has been running really warm for the last day or 2. I had IE open and yahoo messager, and suddenly no power, it was dead. I was thinking this may have something to do with the temp of the unit itself the last couple of days, anyone have any ideas?

The question is a little vague, but if its running under stress and is shutting down, then its likely to be overheating and the unit is protecting itself.

Get a can of compressed air (or a vacuum cleaner, if you dont want to cough up) and clean the heatsink and fan ports.

If its not this, and you mean it keeps going into standby, either switch this off in Windows (Start -- Control Panel -- Power options) or go into your Bios and see if there is an option in their.

You can also usually switch off the 'CPU stepping' and leave it on full speed all the time (battery life will suffer).

My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you


You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program

DEFRAG C:

CHKDSK C:

Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like www.topmic.com

Power problem I closed my Compaq F700 and opened it 10 minutes later and it shut itself down and won't power back up. Battery is good and the power cord light comes on when plugged in. Any help? Thanks...


Press the power button and if it goes on keep pressing the button until it shuts off. Then try to power it up by tapping the power button once.

How have you tested the battery? In my Acer laptop I'm on my third one in 2 years and recently got a 9 cell high capacity one that lasts 3.5 to 4 hours when my original lasted only 1 or 2 hours tops.

Compaq F700 Battery live very less


Giri,
Its normal, generally it comes with 80-90 min. You can use HP Power management to optimize the use of battery. Making screen less bright will increase the power backup.

Thanks
