Compaq Presario 5000 shuts down after a few minutes

Okay, I took my friend's tower home (Compaq Presario 5000) to try and fix the problem she was having of everything was too slow. There was alot of spyware on there which I removed. I cleaned the back out (was really dirty with dust and dirt). I hooked it up to my HP regular monitor and it was running just fine! Mouse was working again and programs were opening quickly and then pooff it turned itself off after about 4 minutes. The keyboard num lock light was still on thou. I was using a power cord from a different computer. Could this be the cause of it turning itself off like that? Because that was NOT her original problem at all. Also my other question is, could her problem of the extremely slow opening of programs and sticky mouse (that is not happening now with my monitor) be because she got a new LCD monitor and it's using too much ram? This is just a guess for me, I still have her computer but will like your guy's expert opinion. Thank you in advance. Hope I explained this okay.

    Thank you for your input, chiplevel. The problem is my friend does not have the original cds with the OS on them. So I ran Ad Aware and found lots of spyware which is now gone. Do you think that the turning off could be that my power cord I'm using is not giving it enough power? Or am I just saying something is stupid. I didn't bring her cord with me and used one that I had here. What do you think of that?

    Actually, what does the mother board look like? There are so many little boards in there. This happened after I vaccumed the inside. Maybe I loosened something on the motherboard eh? oops, that would not be good. I'm a greenhorn here.

I have a compaq computer that works great for 1 hour the shuts do


Is it shuting down? Or just instantly going off.

If it is shutting down, adjust the power settings.
  • Control Panel
  • Power Options
  • Make sure the scheme you want is selected. For a desktop it should be Home/Office or Always on.
  • Make sure that System Standby and Hibernate (if available) are set to the length you want.

I recently had a new power supply installed in my compaq presario SR1318NX, now the fans run almost constantly. The air from the fans does not feel hot, nor does the tower. Is this serious?


Hi,

In a desktop computer the fan is supposed to run constantly otherwise the processor would get that hot the system would repeatedly shut down or even damage the processor or motherboard.

If the fan is noisy then chances are that the fan blades need cleaning of dust.

Other than that you have nothing to worry about.


Regards.

Presario 5000 will not start. afterpressing power button, it starts up but immediately shuts down.


If it happens after a few seconds, it may be overheating. If immedietely, the power supply unit is bad.

Compaq Presario SR1000 Won't Turn On


The power on buttom might be it. Before doing anything else, check and fix the power ON button. I have a tower that gave me the same trouble. The Power On button somehow was out of place. Once I aligned it, the tower worked again. Good guess..! Good luck

Usb wireless adapter for Compaq Presario 5000


Most netgear adapters will work.
They're around £20 and will connect to pretty much everything =)
They work on windows, from 98 i think. So aslong as the old tower has a sort-of up to date OS then it'll connect for you :)

Hope it helps.
