Question about Compaq Presario R3000Z Notebook

My R3000 wont power up

Every time I shut my computer down I have the hardest time starting it back up. it use to take only a few tries of tapping or holding the power button, but not it takes forever. I started taking the top strip off so I had direct access to the button. This worked once, still after many tries. Any help would be much apprieciated.

Sounds like the power button itself, down to the level where the contact happens, needs cleaning. I have cleaned these types of contacts many times. It is tedious and involves dismantling of the unit to access the switch contact area. Then clean both of the contacts with alcohol swab, then continue wiping with dry swabs until all alcohol is gone.

System worked for 2 hours then shut off came back on a few times


It shuts down to protect itself from overheating, looks like you tried to use it too much without sorting the problem out.
You can try and give it a good clean out. Google cleaning computers.
I usually use a small brush, my vaccum cleaner and sometimes an air duster

Wont start up.


Have you tried booting windows into "Safe Mode"?

1. Power ON your computer.
2. After the Acer "splash screen" comes on, press the [F8] a few times (10 times or so, to "catch" the menu)
3. A menu will appear.
4. Select "Start Windows in the last known good configuration" (or something very close to that wording).
5. It may start for you now; and it will start normally from now on without pressing the [F8] key.

Let us know if thjis worked.
If not, what was the last thing that was done before it quit working right? Download? Install a program? Remove a program??

Compaq Presario R3000. Push power button and lights come on then goes dead before booting. Occassionally Windows will start booting the it goes dead. Any suggestions?


Either the power supply is putting out too low voltage or the power jack is bad.Try moving the ac adapter tip around while its starting up to see if it keeps it running or shuts it off.If it makes no difference try another ac adapter that does work for sure and see if thats the problem.If neither approach works,then the HDD may be seizing or one of the ram sticks may be bad.Some sort of hardware conflict can cause shut downs.You would have to take the bootstrap approach to narrow it down to one pacific component.

Presario r3000 shuts down


I have experienced similar problems. I found that if the fans were REALLY dirty, the system would overheat and shut down with no warning.

If this dont help try going to re-store - go to the calendar click only on 1 of the high lighted areas , Should put ya back on.
