Compaq c300 turns on then shuts down

Try removing the battery, reboot. Try another Power cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. Clean the Fan and Vents with a Can of Compressed Air. Does it fully boot , then shut down?

I can't able to download file or view file from long as i start it my laptop automatically shutdowns.plz guide.

Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Compaq Presario 2500 Laptop fans not turning on since....

First check in the BIOS to see what you can set for thermal limits.

When you blew out the dust I do hop you did not poke the nozzle into the laptop as this could cause damage not only to the laptop but to the fans a well. I also hope you did not do this with the laptop switched on as that too could cause damage.

Many compaq also ship with a small utility program that also allows you to set temperature limits. make sure it is set back to defaults and that you only make adjustments from here if you live in an extremely warm climate

You should also consider the use of a laptop cooling stand with at lease two fans preferably more. A good laptop cooler can be a lifesaver for a laptop.

I got a really annoying fan noise, can I fix it without replacing the fan?

Try cleaning it, probably full of dirt.
If that doesnt work then the motor is gone, fans are not that expensive

Heating and performance problems on my Aspire 5520

We had the same problem with the same model. The problem is that the side openings in the fan assembly tend to get plugged with dust. Take the back cover off, and then take the few screws off the covering for the fan assembly. It'll likely be plugged with dust. Get a small brush (like for an electric razor), and just brush the dust off. That will solve the problem. or redo the paste on the cpu with some arctic silver
check the fan and h/sink are clear of dust
see if they have a full manual you can download on the acer site giving an exploded view of the laptop

Laptop problem

the laptop is full of dust and fluff and needs cleaning before real damage is done because of overheating, buy a can of compressed air and blast it through the vents and the fan area, if you feel adventuous open the laptop up and clean it manually with a soft, clean paintbrush

Extremely loud fan at high fan speeds

If you remove the hard drive bay and memory bay underneath the laptop, you should be able to see the fan attached to the motherboard, if not completely remove the bottom section of the notebook, you may find that there is a build up of dust on the phone, hoover this off gently, you may find a big difference as dust causes fan imbalance

Speed reduced suddenly

Try to check the fan first. Oftentimes, the speed variation is a manifestation that the fan has accumulated to much dust. Clean it. If the problem persist try replacing it. The lack of proper ventilation inside the machine could hamper its normal routine thus slowing down the system.

yes its probably the fan but it could also be the screen brightness. replacing the fan and turning down the brightness will cool the laptop. but i agree try a new fan first.
