Better one would be upgrade your RAM and decrease the startup programs such as major Virus & Internet security products.

Welcome to the world of VISTA, now you know why we like XP Professional. First see if you can return and replace the laptop with one that has XP Professional installed. BPCS

My keybord of compaq v3000 is working slow

i believe you never cleaned the radiator (heatsink) and you still have the old thermal compound on the cpu.
if you have intel version then your unit last longer.if its amd get more hot this lead to sluggish keyboard or other malfunction.this is the best time to strip the unit and clean the radiator.
please when you do this take off the ventilator from may gonna see behind on the radiator wall thick dust.if the cpu has old thermal paste dont scratch this off with sharp object such as screew driver or any metalic have to use tim cleaner or if you dont have then use ipa from maplin.check the blue sillicon pad on the graphic processor if its not old usually loosing basicly you need a good cleanup.first try to blow the dust out with compressed air use the strong is not good.then test the unit.if you still not happy the unit may need reball of gpu and north bridge.

I see many models of compaq presario in youtube on "how to disassemble..." but cannot find one tutorial on v3000. any model you can recommend similar to v3000 i can take as tutorial?


Here is a written one for you but no video also near the bottom underneath where it says references
the is a link for you to download the V3000 serivce manual when you click on it it should immediatly start the down load so if poss download it onto another computer so that you can read it step by step and if you have the option to save it it will be useful to help put bac together again as that is a nightmare of a job

have fun
manyn thanks

I have a compaq presario v3000 i remove the vista now xp is running on my laptop but drivers are not working after change the os.

The model "V3000" is a generic term for a bunch of different models. To make sure you get the right drivers for your specific model, start at HP's site here and pick yours from the list. Then pick the Windows XP operating system and you'll find the drivers they have for download.

Laptop Screen White horizontal lines

Try reseating the LCD cable to the video card. If no change, then you will most likely need a replacement LCD (Roughly $150 on EBay)

I am using a Compaq Presario V3000 laptop - 2yrs old. Recently my laptop speed has been too slow. IE is not connecting to any website. However internet is connected i.e. Yahoo & Skype are working

Please run system restore to factory default but backup your documents first.

Try another browser like Opera or Firefox.

Good luck.

rate this please.

If your v3000 only shows leds but no video you need to replace your GPU(graphics processor) Hp has an active recall for this problem for certains models, you can check if your v3000 qualyfing for this recall in

The manner that we resolve this issue:
you need to remove your MoBo completely from your laptop, remove your heatsink and coller from your Cpu/Gpu, with a heat gun(similar to hair dryer) reheat your gpu, this will cause that your gpu re-soldering and will function very well.
If you think this is so hard to you you can send your laptop to: VCRTECH
10001 buckwood Av. 79925 El Paso Tx
We repair your laptop in 2-3 business days and we charge $80 usd for this repair.


Please give me your feedback

Notebook processor too slow, Need upgrade

As far as laptops go, there is not much room for upgrades as far as CPUs go, you can try contacting Compaq to see if they have an upgrade for the processor but that is a long shot.

The other thing you can do it can your local Computer Repair / Maintenance store and see if they do upgrades for laptops.
