Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
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!
