Check and make sure the cooling fan is working and that the vent slots are not blocked. You can clean them with canned air. Also
you can purchase laptop stands to set it on that helps with air flow.

I have a compaq presario x6000. every time i place the laptop on my bed and turn it on it cuts off within 5 minutes. but when I place it on a desk and turn it on it does not cut off. do not understand why...


The reason is because when the laptop is placed on the bed the cooling vents are blocked and the CPU overheats and shuts down. When the laptop os placed on a flat surface there is sufficient clearance between the bottom of the laptop and the flat surface of the desk to provide sufficient air circulation.
If you wish to use the laptop in bed then place the laptop on a flat surface and not let the bed clothes cover the laptop's cooling vents.

Laptop Compaq Presario F 700 overheats easily and shuts down


When the CPU overheats it shuts down (ie thermal overload) and won't startup until it has cooled down. This problem is caused by faulty fans (with bearing problems and may not spinning at normal speed) or the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust.
Check the vents and fan and vacuum and remove the dust.

If the laptop is not placed on a flat surface there may not be enought air entering the vent on the bottom of the laptop.
To improve ventillation, you can stick rubber pads on the bottom of the laptop to increase the height of the laptop off the table. Better still purchase a laptop fan assisted base and place the laptop on this base, this provides further fan assisted ventillation.

Broken headphone socket on compaq presario c700


It can be replaced as it is most likely a standard part. The problem is that 1) it is a surface mounted socket and 2) the entire laptop must be dis-assembled to get to it. This is not a repair I would recommend to a novice. Ask around for someone that can work on surface mounted parts and see how much for the repair. The part should not be more than $2-$4.
