Re: Ventilation fan not running

Most laptops fans run briefly at boot time to check that they are responding, but some do not. It is not unusual, though, for laptop fans to only run when they are hot. Try using the laptop in bed surrounded with blankets and see if the fan turns on after a while. Also check the fan (if it is visible, as some are) is not clogged somehow with lint or dust, which does happen. If it is clogged, take a vacuum cleaner on smallest nozzle with the laptop unplugged and slowly suck the lint out through the ventilation holes.

If the laptop heats up badly (HPs are known for this) and the fan never turns on at all, the fan could be bad, but this is very unlikely. If it were the case, ask HP to replace it under warranty, or if not under warranty, have a go at removing and replacing it, though this is a last resort. You can also get a cooling pad/docking station for laptops that would help, though it would tie you to carrying around a base unit.

Good luck.

Screen is black, but fan runs. Then computer cuts

This most often means you have a bad cpu or motherboard. When the bios does its post checks it looks for issues and will shut the pc down if all the devices are not funtioning correctly or the CPU reaches critical heat.

A claim

I had the same problem on my v2000. apparently the fan shroud for the cpu cooling fan is made of plastic and can deform. In my case the deformation allowed the fans blades to strike the heatsink stalling the fan. This would lead to system overheat and shutdown. I disassembled the unit removed the fan shroud and installed .5mm O-rings onto the mounting screws moving the fan away from the heat sink and allowing normal operation. This repair is not for the faint of heart as these are tiny screws.

Computer just shut off and won't come back on

One last resort would be to check the power connector at the rear of the laptop,,,if that is found to be connecting ok,,(need a volt meter to test) then i would say you need a new mainboard, time to visit ebay.

Compaq v2000 dies after some time

Is the machine getting hot when it shuts down? If so, then you may need to clean the fan and heat sink. A dust or dirt build up can hinder the cooling system performance allowing the machine to heat up to a level that kicks in the built in fail safes in order to keep from damaging the processor. Try cleaning them and let me know. We'll go from there.

Compaq Presario v2000 Notebook problem

Hi, Take out the battery and plug in only the power adapter and see if it comes on. If it does then leave out the battery for about 15 minutes and then put it back in. Good luck!
