Compaq presario cq62 won't start but the caps lock led blinks continuously and the wifi led remains on continuously, tried new cpu, worked for a while and started same problem again.


those are blink codes, learn to count them.
if you pulled the CPU i bet you that you used the wrong heat sink compound.
The CPU shuts off all by itself if too hot. your job is to get the fan working and the heat sink working and that thermal compound right.

as the blink codes we are not HP here, ever

I recently had a new power supply installed in my compaq presario SR1318NX, now the fans run almost constantly. The air from the fans does not feel hot, nor does the tower. Is this serious?


Hi,

In a desktop computer the fan is supposed to run constantly otherwise the processor would get that hot the system would repeatedly shut down or even damage the processor or motherboard.

If the fan is noisy then chances are that the fan blades need cleaning of dust.

Other than that you have nothing to worry about.


Regards.

I have a presario R3000 notebook. just like to ask if the fan for ventilation underneath is working in a certain temperature. or it will automatimatically running when i plug in.. can some one help me....


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.

My compaq presario C700 model #C765TU easily gets hot and is crashing


Make sure that there is no dust in the Fans of teh unit. The Compaq's are famous for overheats.

Download a program called SpeedFan available from

www.almico.com/speedfan.php

once you donwload the file install it, it will put the computer's temp in your system tray by the clock

Try and watch the temp and see what its at when the computer shuts down.

If it is an older unit your processor will most likley need to have heat paste applied to the processor.

You can call your local repair shop, some will do it for about 25.00... Make sure that when you use the machine that you provide enough room for the fans to breath, do not set the laptop on a couch, or bed where the heat cannot escape.

Also check to see that the fans on the bottom of the machine are running. they sometimes fail, however you should receive notification of this on the POST when your computer starts.

Hope this helps

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.

Presario 2200 CPU fan appears to be dodgy


Not really, since the fan is controlled ny a thermal sensor on the Motherboard. You may want to start by having the fan and heatsink assembly replaced.
