Compaq V2710us shuts down randomly with a loud click

Compaq V2710us shuts down randomly with a loud "click" OR screen goes blank and PC cannot be revived w/o holding down the power button til shuts down and then re-booted.

Not consistent in lenght of time between start and failure.

I have cleaned heatsink/fan [there was dust/dirt] replaced heat sink and used heat sink compound [silicon/zink oxide Radio Shack brand...any better to use?] [according to another post, I may have used too much...will try lesser amount].

Also replaced mother board.

HP/Compaq is recommending BIOS upgrade and then HDD check...but unit doesn't stay up long enough to do. "BIOS upgrade interuptus" doesn't sound like a good idea!


Thanx,

Ray

Still shuts down.

    Hello,



    Thanx for the lead on this problem.



    I checked with my daughter (it's her baby!) and there was a recent addition of RAM! I will get the original RAM that came with the laptop and try that.



    However, there are soooo many reports of the same failure on this machine, I believe there is another hardware problem...just can't put my finger on it!



    Regarding scanning for trojans and viruses...do you have any recommendation on what package I might use?





    Thanx,



    Ray

Loud click sounds like either a short or overload, causing ground default. recheck inside for any loose connections anything grounding out the motherboard.

Random shut off. Sounds like a relay click.


Could be due to getting too hot! Do you have it clear from any walls and or other PC products? If so give it some room to breath!! I have had my New Asus gaming tower turn off on me due to it getting too warm.

Its stuck on a update when i shut it down and i turn it on its still on tht update and doesnt let me do anything


You're not really turning it off.
You're putting it into standby mode.
Press and hold the power botton down until the screen goes blank.
Once it has shut down completely, press the power button as usual and it should start up.
