Re: compaq presario 2100 fan does not work...

Ok, first off i have a feeling that reinstalling xp had nothing to do with your fan. Locate the fan vents on the side or back of your notebook. Buy a can of compressed air and spray out the vents. My guess is you have plenty of dust. After that boot the computer and enter the bios menu. Look for where it displays your temperature. Leave it running like this overnight. If its still on, check the temperature. If its above 70 C you have a bad fan, the same holds true if it doesn't last the night.

What's the most current OS I can use to replace Windows 98 on a Compaq Presario 1277 laptop?

You might be able to find a stripped down version of XP or put Windows NT on it. Those are my best guesses. NT will let you use newer versions of some browsers as well. Mostly Explorer

My compaq laptop shut off by itself,IM NOTICING the cooling fan is not working

if the cooling fan is not working then the laptop will shut off due to heat issues. Than could just be clogged stopping it from spinning. I have seen the cooling fans go bad. The fan will def need to be repaired or replaced if not working. You can probably find one for it and replace it yourself if you have any technical experience

Compaq Presario fan is not functioning. It is - fan is plugged into the motherboard but the fan will not run - causing my laptop to overheat - I cannot find a fan controlling software that is compatible...

sounds like a burnt up fan so you might just want to take it to your local computer tech have them replace the fan and put some new cpu compound in their and it will never over heat again
