Question about HP Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook
I've had my Compaq Presario R4000 for quite a few years. It still runs great. I've only had one major problem, and it's quite annoying; it has gotten worse recently.
My computer has the habit of hibernating while I was in the middle of something...no messages, just a blank screen. I have it set so that when it hibernates, it comes up where I left off...which does save time, still it's annoying. The next one is more complicated. When I have the power cable connected/charging my computer, if I move the computer in any direction, it shuts down...completely. I've been able to manipulate the cord so that it still charges while I'm working, but I think something is wrong with either my power cable or my battery. Again, I've had it for a while, and I'm just not sure what needs to be done!! HELP!!
As far as the laptop turning off on you when you move it, try it with just the ac adaptor hooked up and if it still shuts completely off on you then that means the dc jack (where the ac adaptor plugs into) is loose and the connections to that are on the bottom of the motherboard and would need to be resoldered so its nice and tight. That would take care of that problem. The hibernation problem, go into the power options in the control panel and in there you can tell the laptop to not turn off the display or put the computer to sleep at all. That should take care of that problem or you can set it to a longer time, your choice.
