Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
What it does is, boots up okay, but then at slightly varying lengths of time, between 2 and 10 minutes, it just shuts down abruptly, like it had no battery and I simply pulled the adapter plug out. shuts down cold without warning.
I though maybe the anti-virus program (norton) had gone awry, maybe shutting it down because of some virus, but there would be a warning of some kind.
Power source is working, checked the output with a voltage meter and it was producing just a bit over 18 v.
I knew of a sony vaio that had the same type of issue, so I was wondering if this may be a proprietary problem, or could it be a proprietary owner mistake that causes it?
I need suggestions as to what to look for, I really like this laptop and don't want to get another brand.
Check the battery that powers your cmos. if your laptop is like my compaq armada, there's three screws at the top which free up the keyboard cover. there are three latches near the bottom of the keyboard. the keyboard swings up towards the top. there's two film type connectors in the middle of the motherboard. pull these out and the keyboard comes free. look in the upper left part of the laptop for a small disk type battery with a red and black on white nylon connector. replace this battery. it is a lithium-ion battery.
