I have a compaq R3000 amd 754 running windows xp. Within the this last week it's done the following.
1. Black screen- replaced the screen
2. Laptop wouldn't boot - replace the power supply
3. Laptop will start up and as soon as it gets to the welcome screen it will turn off. - Replaced the processor and applied new heatsink paste
I don't know what else to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Motherboard may be your problem, if it is fried it will attempt to load but will continue to shut off with no explanation. however if you have downloaded a virus then if you can manage to get your computer booted i would suggest a restore to a previous point and try to get rid of the virus this also works if you have downloaded a program or service pack that is incompatible with your computer. could also be your bios or hard drive. computers **** to fix hope this helps.

If you have a second monitor, you can plug it into the VGA port on your laptop. If you get a screen on the secondary monitor, then the problem is your laptop screen and not your video card. If you get nothing on either screen then it is your video card and you will need a new mother board.
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.

suspected hard disk faulty or OS corrupted.
to check, take out your hard disk and put it in other laptop. if the problem persist your OS is corrupted. In that case, you need to reformat your OS in a defaulty factory settings.
from my experience this might be one of two things...
if it's shutting down while you're installing windows, i'm thinking you might have a problem with the motherboard channel for your CD drive. i saw this happen to a computer at work - we couldn't install windows because it cut off halfway through and blue screened on us.
it might also be a case of a bad hard drive, if you have any testing utility like drive fitness test i'd give that a shot. it sounds like a new one, but they're bad out of the box sometimes.
Sounds like a hard Drive problem. A virus actually. The Best thing to do if Safe Mode Failed is the Repair Your system, to do this insert your XP CD and wait until it says 'Press any key to boot CD' Press any key and follow instructions to repair windows. If it works, run a virus scan immediately. If Not, take it itno a computer technitian to look at it if you want the stuff on your Hard Drive, of if you feel you don't care too much just wipe the Hard Drive and Re-Install Windows XP. just do the same thing as repair but instead follow the instructions for Installing XP and choose either Clear or Erase Hard drive if you don't want the info or choose don't clrear or Erase if you really want stuff from your hard drive, But run a Virus scan Immediately asap.
