Compaq Presario C500 cooling fan doesn't turn

The cooling fan is not turning and the computer shuts down after about 20 mins.  Where can I find a replacement part? I'm having trouble taking it apart, have all screws out but can't figure how to get it apart. Is there a repair manual for it? Battery needs replacement, but that's a different issue, I think. Thank you.

I have the same model. Even though the link below is for the Presario C300, the disassembly is identical.

just click on fan/heatsink assembly. All the steps that you need to do beforehand are on the left hand side. It's a lot of work, but worth it. Good luck!

Presario turns off after 20 minutes


I had a problem like this a while ago. It turned out the fan was stuck due to dust buildup. The computer was shutting off because it was overheating. Cleaning the fan solved the problem.

I'm facing this problem since a few time now, when i start using my laptop say for after 20-30 mins the screen goes all black and after 20-30 the computer shuts down automatically. what can be the problem?...


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

What will be the possible cause when my laptop compaq presario C700 is automatically turning off?


If the laptop shuts down and won't boot up until it has cooled down, then the CPU is overheating and goes into thermal shutdown. This is caused by either a faulty fan or the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust.
If this is not fixed then eventually the CPU will fail completely.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely if not then replace the fan.
If the fan and heatsink is clogged with dust then remove the dust from the fan and heatsink fins.

Broken fan on compaq


don't keep running it until you replace the fan. Look for one on ebay or around the web. It is shutting down because of heat. A $20 fan could cost you your whole laptop if you keep running it.

Compaq presario R3000 Laptop power and fan problems


Your machine is overheating. Try cleaning the vents with a can of compressed air and making sure the heat sync is free of dust. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the fans.
