Question about Compaq Presario 900 /1500 Series EVO n1015v 15. inch LCD Display -285520-001 (285520001) CD-ROM Drive
turn on this labtop and use it for about one half hour or an hour it would shut off,and when I try to use anti -virus to scan computer it would shut off could not complete scan.I have replaced battery ,power supply figured it would help,nothing!.any suggetions?
First thing that comes to mind is that it is overheating which causes the shutdown problem. When running the ant-virus the computer uses a lot of resources and it gets hot fast. When laptop is turned off, inspect all areas for dust build up around any openings. You can also remove the compartment lids and inspect those too. The best way to clean out dust is to use compressed air that comes in a can and q-tips. Blow the air into all the openings and use the q-tips to whip away dust build up. Once you think that it is clean, turn it on and make sure that the fans are running if your unit has them. While it is running, you can use a free on line scanner that uses less resources just in case it still overheats over time.
With sufficient cooling, your laptop should perform much better too.
