Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
I just installed a 250 gig hard drive and 2 gigs memory. the laptop never cut off before but when formatting the had drive partition it shuts down after 10 minutes everytime. what can i do to prevent this. I cannot install windows XP on it when it continues to do this.
From my experience this might be one of two things...
if it's shutting down while you're installing windows, i'm thinking you might have a problem with the motherboard channel for your CD drive. i saw this happen to a computer at work - we couldn't install windows because it cut off halfway through and blue screened on us.
it might also be a case of a bad hard drive, if you have any testing utility like drive fitness test i'd give that a shot. it sounds like a new one, but they're bad out of the box sometimes.
hope this helps
