You could as well have a bd battery. Check the compaq web-site and type in ur model of computer then try to check if there is any call back on your battery. if not it might be just yours. Look online to see how much a new one is. it also could be your fan. it might not be working. do you hear some kind of air or fan working? it might be to your advantage to replace both battery and fan or just the fan.

lease kindly leave me feedback!

Sorry to get your hopes up but I have a similar problem with my 2005 Yukon Denali. How long does the truck stay running before it shuts down? Mine started out with short spurts of the truck shutting down while driving. It slowly progressed to the point where it will only run for about 45 seconds. Originally the truck would sputter the gauges would die and then the truck would die. It slowly progressed to the point where it only runs for 45 seconds and there is no signs before hand. Does any of this happen to your vehicle? I have checked all of my cables and the main ground wires. Along with changing a few of the relays. Nothing has helped. My problem started with an electrical component heating up and quitting. Now it doesn't matter how hot it is in only runs for a couple seconds.

Neon will not start after being driven on hot days.


You have an intermittent problem in your start circuit. I'm sure you also have some choice phrases to describe it, go ahead and vent, we have all encountered frustrating problems.
The reason shops can't find it is because it isn't happening when they look at it. Anytime a hot engine is shut down a lot of heat is generated in the engine compartment. So opening the hood helps yours cool down faster and start quicker, a good clue. I believe if you had it at a shop when it won't start, they might find it. First thing they would check, or you could if you have a voltmeter or testlight, is if power is reaching the starter from the ignition switch in cranking position. This is the small wire on the starter solenoid. If there is power there when the engine won't crank, quickly reconnect the wire and verify if car will crank or not. If still nothing, it may be a poor ground wire(battery or engine ground) or a poor battery cable, since you know the starter is good. If you reconnect the wire and it suddenly starts working, it may have just been a loose connection on the wire you pulled off. If it keeps happening when your hot engine is shut off, test may have been invalid-intermittent problem has only now come back, so run the same test again.
If you or a tech ever find no power on the solenoid wire in START, that narrows it down to the path from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. One needs to trace that path, looking for where the power is stopped. A couple of possibilities are the starter relay and the neutral safety switch. You could try a new inexpensive starter relay and see if that solves it. If not, then further testing needs to be done before giving up or throwing some expensive parts in and hoping. But you have narrowed it down which helps. It could be some arcane problem like a ground source for the starter relay, or who knows what. Have the start circuit checked, and it would be easier if the no crank condition is present when checked. Good luck.

If you have an ice maker in the freezer compartment try raising the bail arm and shutting it off. It is possible that an ice maker will increase your run time.

Wii keeps shutting down


First, I would advise you to not power up the console if it's getting hot. When the console is running, can you see the small fan on the back spinning? If not, you can probably buy an external cooling fan like this one.

This will act as a surrogate cooler to replace the original fan, and should allow the console to stay cool enough to remain on.
