There are several models of this notebook depending on the processor. Some only have one fan, otehrshave two. When operating the fan should start running. I have the higher spec R3000 and my fans start soon after the machine is turned on and sometimes throttle down if I have no activity. Upon starting to use it, they soon start again. Considerable hot air will come out the right back and side.

DO NOT block the air intake(s) on the bottom of the unit !!! You can burn up the processor.

The fan should run continuously. It speeds up as the processor, (And Graphics Processing Unit. GPU), becomes hotter.
[The processor heats up as more tasks are asked of it]

I would get this looked at right away! When a processor becomes too hot, it shuts off. This is a Fail-Safe built in option, to keep the processor from burning up.

For information purposes, here is the download page for the Maintenance and Service Manual, for the Compaq Presario R3000 Series Notebook PC's,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=442914&lang=en&

In the menu click on - HP Pavilion zx5000 Notebook PC, HP Pavilion zv5000 Notebook PC, Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook PC, HP Compaq nx9100 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

(This one Service Manual covers all of these laptops. Also Intel and AMD processor versions)

This is a PDF file download. (Your computer has Adobe Reader on it, and Adobe Reader uses PDF files)

After you click on the above PDF file, you may not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds. It is downloading. After it has fully downloaded, then you can look through it. (Looking through the pages before it has fully downloaded, may break the download connection)

Thought you might want to see what the inside of your laptop looks like, have access to a Troubleshooting flowchart, and more information.

Computer keeps turning it self off


Hi vflood, This is usually due to a heat issue, possibly from accumulated dust inside the machine. Take the side off and, using canned air available in most electronics departments, blow the dust off of the cpu, heatsink, and fans as well as the ventilation areas. Then blow the rest of the dust out as well.

Also, if you have altered your operating system power settings recently, you may want to revert them to default.

Hope this helps, and please don't forget to rate/vote!

Laptop shuts down


My Wife's computer started doing this for about a week or two, then all it did was keep trying to boot, nothing on screen, all lights come on. Seems there is an issue with certain models of compaqs and Hp laptops. If yougo to their website and chat with a rep, you may find you have one of these models they are giving a one time free fix, even if out of warranty.
They have ours right now.

Compac presario R3000 problem


That screen is normal but only shows on certain occasions. Just use your arrow keys to highlight "Start Windows Normally" and press enter and you will continue to the blue sign in screen. If the removal software asks you start Windows in "Safe Mode", then restart the computer and select "Safe Mode with Networking".

Most common method for receiving that screen and those options is pressing a specific key during start-up for additional start-up methods. Another reason which may be the reason for your case is that something went wrong during start-up. Just follow the instructions above and it will be fine. Usually the reason why you are asked to choose is shown at the top of the screen and it will tell what the problem is.

Presario r3000 shuts down


I have experienced similar problems. I found that if the fans were REALLY dirty, the system would overheat and shut down with no warning.
