I had the same problem on my v2000. apparently the fan shroud for the cpu cooling fan is made of plastic and can deform. In my case the deformation allowed the fans blades to strike the heatsink stalling the fan. This would lead to system overheat and shutdown. I disassembled the unit removed the fan shroud and installed .5mm O-rings onto the mounting screws moving the fan away from the heat sink and allowing normal operation. This repair is not for the faint of heart as these are tiny screws.

My compaq 610 wont start up. went i connect de charger the powerbutton lights goes on en off.

When the power button blinks do you hear the laptop fans run on full speed? If that happens its because your laptop is overheating and is trying to cool down. It will not turn on until it cools down to protect from damage due to heat.

Use your laptop on a hard surface and dont block its vents with anything. If you want to use it on bed keep it on a laptop cooler or a thick book to allow ventilation.

If laptop doesnt turn on at all, the motherboard might be damaged. Take it to repair shop and check whats wrong.

How to reduce overheating problems on laptops by Lotfi the Expert.

Laptops suffer from overheating which you may notice after few hours of use underneath which can burn your skin or cause damage to your laptop resulting in a very complicated problem. I came up with few simple tips to reduce the likelihood of component failure due to overheating.

1) Use your notebook on a flat hard surface such as desk, table with wooden, glass or metal surfaces. if you want to use it on your bed use a large book underneath to put it on or something that is flat.

2) Do not play graphic demanding applications such as Games or Movies for long hours continuously, when you notice your fan is getting very loud and your laptop is overheating switch it off and let it cool down for about 10 minutes.

3) Never cover the ventilation holes on your laptop.

4) Carry out a full dust removal once every 6 months using an air can and also change the thermal paste on both processor and graphic chip unit once every year by a technician. as shown in my video here:

5) Set the power options to "power saver" when not using the laptop for performance mode applications such as gaming or editing.

Using a notebook cooling pad will not have such a dramatic effect to reduce temperatures as the cool air does not reach the specific components therefore do not waste money in cooling pads for laptops as you will not notice more than 2 or 3c drop.

My computer is automatic shutdown

Have you cleaned the fan, vents, heatsink? If a laptop overheats, due to dust, poor ventilation, blocked vents, it will shut down to prevent damage to vital components. Clean, improve air flow through the bottom and out the vents. Never use on soft surfaces that can block air flow. Contrary to the name, Laptop, it's not good to use on your lap. Go figure? If the Laptop is Clean and air flow isn't a problem, open Power Settings in Control Panel,and change Advanced Power settings to Sleep/Hibernate to Never, set to High Performance, unplug and remove battery when not in use. If you use mostly on AC remove battery.

Laptop soaked in red wine

Do not power on this unit as it may still be fine. Please Remove the battery. A technician will need to dismantle your entire notebook, cleaning each and every component. Then rebuilding it, replacing any damaged components. For the moment place it on it's side and let out as much liquid as possible. Please Do Not power it on as it will cause further damage.

Claim warranty or insurance support if applicable. Your nearest computer store may have a computer technician willing to perform the clean and rebuild.

Take care!

Due to their small size and lack of ventilation, laptops tend to overheat more than desktop computers. A noisy cooling fan that runs continuously is one sign that your laptop is overheating. Laptop overheating can also cause a loss of performance, system crashes, and even permanent damage to components. The goal is to make sure your laptop has proper ventilation and is kept as cool as possible.

1.Always use your laptop on a tray, desktop, or other cool surface. If you use it on your lap, make sure clothes, upholstery or bedding are not blocking the case vents. Blocked vents are the number one cause of laptop overheating.

2.Use an aerosol air duster, or can of compressed air, to blow dust from the air intake vents. Air intake vents are a set of slots on the side or bottom of the case that allow cool air to flow into the laptop.

3.Clean the cooling fan exhaust system. The cooling or CPU fan is located on the side or back of the case. A clogged CPU fan vent keeps hot air trapped inside the case. Use an aerosol air duster to loosen the debris, then use a vacuum cleaner with crevice tool to vacuum out the dust and dirt.

4.Use a commercial laptop cooler. A laptop cooler pad is an external USB powered fan that serves as a base for your laptop. If your laptop generates a lot of heat, even with a clean cooling system, a laptop cooler will extend the life of your laptop.

5.Adjust your BIOS settings. Most laptops have features built into the system BIOS that allow fan speed, CPU temperature alarms, and other settings to be adjusted. Read your owner's manual to learn how to enter the BIOS and change the settings for your particular laptop model.

TOSHIBA L305D-S5934 laptop,,i brought it to service center..motherboard is dead.cost me half the unit price if repared..can someone have idea for cheaper repair..or tips for own/troubleshoot!!!

Call Verizon. They have an equipment protection plan that you can buy for Tv's, Computers or a combination of both. It costs less then $20 per month. There are no previous exclusions from this policy. You can file a claim for repair and/or replacement after 30 days of coverage. You pay a $75.00 deductible with a credit card or by mailing a check before they will begin your claim. Once your deductible is paid they will send you packaing to mail your computer back to them within 3 days. They pay for all shipping fee's. They will inspect it upon arrival and try to repair it, then send it back ASAP. If it is not repairable, they will replace it with a brand new model. No questions asked. The only thing they will not due is repair cosmetic defects.

Hope this helps?

My acer aspire was not working, I went ahead and put in a new hard drive. Problem is now I need an operating system. I have no back up or program CD's. A friend gave me a windows 2000 pro, when I try to...

I am guessing your southbridge chip de-soldered itself from the severe heat it causes which is not ventilated. Very common problem with aspire laptops, also keyboards, dispays, and cd-rom's are common to quit due to the southbridge chip. warranty fix will do nothing but buy more time. You may be able to put something on the chip to put pressure on it, worked for some, not me.
