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.

Re: compaq presario r3000
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.

Maybe something is defective from the factory? Can you bring it back and exchange it for another? Is it a desktop or a laptop? If it's a desktop, maybe remove a side panel and aim a small fan at the inside. Do you know how to start up your computer in safe mode? Maybe try starting it in safe mode and see if you can do a system restore, do you know what that is and how to do it? Google will explain it to you, but I'd suggest those steps.
After you power it up LEAVE IT ALONE for at least 45 minutes. When the NBX loses power abruptly it will do a disk scan upon reboot. The disk scan takes anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes (depnding on the size of the database). You can connect to the console and see it doing a disk scan when you boot it back up. It will go through 6 phases and then boot up normally. Each time you pull the plug you risk database corruption (or hard drive failure on an older system).
HELLO THIS IS THE BLUE SREEN OF DEATH IT BLOCK WINDOW FROM LOADING WHEN YOU BOOT UP YOUR COMPUTER SO YOU MUCH DOWNLOAD (BOOTIT) ISO AND BURN IT TO YOUR BLANK DVD OR CD ROM AND BOOT FROM THE CD AND YOU DELETE THE PARTITION AND CLICK CLEAR BOOT SECTOR DONE AND REINSTALLATION WINDOWS OKAY DOWNLAOD BOOTIT WRITE BOOTIT ON GOOGLE AND DOWNLOAD IT
when the power cut off windows shut down immedeiatly and when u start your system wont boot this mainly because corruption windows files if its abruptly shuts down the current windows will get corrupted so better use an UPS for a standby atleast for few minutes so that u can properly shut down your system so that to prevent your corruption or your system files.This may help u.
Have you installed any new hardware or loaded any new software lately? If not you might have some corrupt files. Reboot the laptop in safe mode. Just hit F8 a few times. It should give you a menu. Arrow to safe mode and hit enter. After it finishes booting to safe mode, do a system restore. Click Start>click Start>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Choose a date before a couple of days before you noticed anything happening. Restore will take a few minutes. When it's restored and booted, I want you to do one more thing. Click on start>run>type in cmd and hit ok. This will take you to your command prompt. Type chkdsk /f It will tell you it can't run it right now do wan't to run it the next time you start up? say yes. Close the window. Restart the computer and the check disk program will run and fix your errors.
If this has fixed your problem please rate it as fixed. If nit, just add a comment add I'll be happy to help you out more. Thanks.
