If the laptop shutdown maybe it cause overheating.
Laptop shuts down? Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

Good luck !!!

My HP Compaq 610 overheats and has reduced speed by double. what is the solution?

Please have an active antivirus installed and scan the PC. It is possible that there is fault in the OS, some files could have been lost or corrupted. Use a registtry cleaner like advanced system care. Also defragment the drives, clean the temporary files and uninstall unwanted programs.
The PC will then regain speed, if not you might need to reinstall the OS.

I got a diagnostics done on my compaq presario pc sr5130NX. i have a virus. my files are backed up how do i get rid of the virus. do i need to restore the computer, if so how?

You could do two things. First I would download malwarebytes, update it and run a quick scan. I would thendownload Microsoft Security Essentials and install it. It's free. If you have XP or higher, you could do a system restore to a date prior to you having problems.

My compaq presario v2000 often shuts down unexpectedly

Hi. Thanks for your question.
My first guess would be that your laptop is overheating. To confirm this you could download program called speedfan using this link please click donwload and once downloaded install on your computer.
Once you have this program you can monitor your computers temperatures and see if they're rising before laptop shuts down.
Laptops often overheat while being used on beds, carpets or any not flat solid surface. This causes air vent at the bottom of laptop to be blocked. That vent is crucial for laptops cooling. The other reason for laptop overheating could be dust and dirt that clogged any visible vents. Removing dust is fairly easy and can be done with little paint brush and can of compressed air which can be bought from any computer shop and some supermarkets.
I hope this helped you to understand your problem better. Please do not hesitate to ask more questions if this is needed. Thank You for using FixYa

Compaq presario sr2172nx shuts down unexpectedly. Very loud fan. How do I adjust those settings in the BIOS?

The fan is probably heat-sensitive, and your computer is probably overheating, despite having the fan spinning at 100%.

Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the side-panel.
Using a can of compressed-air, give your motherboard & CPU & power-supply a "blow-job", to remove all the dust that has accumulated, and is acting like a blanket that is trapping the heat.

When your computer is running at a lower temperature, you won't need to adjust the BIOS-settings.

Missing multimedia audio driver for Compaq presario 6000 I have Installed AC 97 not good

If you have downloaded the drivers from HP site and they don't work, on sound drivers you often have to install manually i.e. "have the disk" and then point to where the files have been unzipped. I have done this a number of times and it works but I can't remember the exact steps to get to "have the disk" - if you have trouble let me know and I will look up the steps. JC
