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!

Overheating on Compaq Presario Notebook Model C501NR


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Compaq presario b1900 fails to give output to monitor. If output comes out it gives blue screen and shuts down. If you switch on again the fan and disk do run but no output to screen. An external monitor...


Hi,
That blue screen and shut down, means a problem on both OS and Hardisk.
If you got any hardisk for that laptop. try it and am sure it will work.
The faint beep means a good memory card.

Hope that helps!

My tecra A6-ez6311 won't boot up when 'hot'.


I am pretty sure you have a root kit virus. Some would try to fix this, and some to be certain will wipe the disk and start over.
I try to hunt out the problem. Every computer that acts like this that I have seen have been Toshiba's with 512 to 1megmb of memory. They do have issues with the power plug being lose which is attached to the battery charge, so do not rule that out. Heat and time are what it could also be. You may have both a virus and power issue. it happens but not often. If it is virus only, I can fix this remotely with my services for $180 money back. I can tell in the fist hour if I can get it. Might not be worth it.

My laptop turn off, I think it got hot, I can't turn it on now. turn off Sunday


Hi
try this,
unplug dc plug from laptop. remove battery.
wait a few minutes. press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.
plug the dc power plug back into the laptop, but do not put battery back in yet. Then try to power on. if it powers on, let it run a few minutes, but best to keep checking to see if it is getting warm or hot anywhere. if it is getting hot shut it down immediately. If it isnt getting hot then shut it down and put the battery back in.

if it doesnt power up, then i would have to suspect heat damage to the motherboard.

Shuts down


Hi..

If the laptop shutdown maybe it cause overheating.
Laptop shuts down? Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

Good luck !!!

Laptop overheating and shutting down

Laptop battery charging problem


Excessive heat could ruin a battery. You might just want to get another battery for it (check ebay or Lenovo.com).

One other thing to try is to run it on battery until it is forced to shut down and then let it set that way without turning it off for half an hour to completely discharge the battery, then recharge it fully again. See if that might help refresh the battery.

BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.


If you are getting garbage on the screen before windows tries to load the laptop probably has a bad motherboard.

It's possibly only the video output is going bad on it, try hooking it to an external monitor and see if you get the same weird stuff on that screen.

Good luck, let me know how it goes
