Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
It is most likely a bad thermal control chip (or connection to it) on the motherboard.
1. Attempt to reflow the motherboard/replace thermal chips (or have a pro do it).
2. Get a new motherboard ($80 to $100).
Option 1 probably cost more than option 2 unless you have a local repair shop where you can just drop it off.
Replacing the motherboard isn't very difficult...just time consuming.
Here is a link to the service manual:
Set the unit on ice packs or an air conditioner vent...it'll probably run for weeks if you can keep it 'ultra cool'.

Uninstall the bios driver first and power it back on it might help
