Question about Compaq Presario 900 /1500 Series EVO n1015v 15. inch LCD Display -285520-001 (285520001) CD-ROM Drive
When using this labtop for about one half hour to an hour it would shut off,and when I try to use anti virus to scan for any viruses it would shut off,I have replaced battery,power supply hoping it woul fix it.......nothing.any suggestions please help!!!!!!!
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.
