Re: presario m2000 just shuts down while in use
Usually this problem occurs due to a thermal[overheating] problem. Make sure all vents are free when running the laptop. You can also fix this by upgrading the fan & buying a laptop cooling pad that sits underneath the computer when in use. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

If there is no power going to the laptop then disconnect battery and hold the reset button in for 30 seconds, then try it again. Sometimes the memory can be damaged which can cause the laptop not to boot..?
Check for blocked air passages - vacuum out the fan ports. (Don't use canned air - you'll just blow the dust inside, where it will act as an insulator and help things overheat.) Make sure the fans are actually turning. If there's any mold growing inside, that could cause the problem too.And for more contact http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz
It appears your CPU is overheating and is shutting down.
Does the fan spin at all when the laptop is switched on?
The fan could be faulty, if it does not spin freely.
To test the fan, try removing it and connect it to a 12 volt DC power supply, if the fan spins fast then it is OK and the fault is on the laptop, possibly the power supply to the fan. In this case you need professional help.
If the fan appears OK then the problem could be insufficient too old heat sink compound between the CPU and the heatsink. You will need to remove the fan and heatsink and the old compound and put some fresh heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink and reassemble the fan/heatsink.
Shut down the computer. Turn it on and during the boot process hit on F8 to get into Advanced boot option (if it skips try again after restart the computer), You will see the options. Choose "Last Known Good Configuration" and enter. It will probably will resolve the issue. If issue persist please post for further assistance.
