    Computer will not stay on after it is started, appears to start up OK then after a few seconds to minutes, ir will shut down sometimes leaving lights on and sometimes appearing a complete shut down

    Computer lights come on, screen remains blank, Hard disk not running. Sometimes it does boot up (kind of random now). The internal wireless now completely kaput, the blue light suggesting connectivity stays orange. I can get wireless from a USB using a linksys wireless adapter providing the computer boots up. I'm thinking it's a heat thing too. Maybe fried something running Civilization on it (the CPU got pretty hot). I've reseated the modem and the Ram chips. Guess I'll try cleaning out the CPU heatsink next.

    It seems everyone knows about the problems the DV1000's have with overheating as well as power problems, system hang ups, charging, graphics, and the list can go on and on. The real question is can anyone help direct us poor HP victims to the problem controller chips, heat sinks and other components to replace ourselves or are we destined to use our laptops as paperweights unless we want to spend as much or more that it would cost to buy a new one.

Most likely thermal shutdown as these are known for this issue. You need to take it apart and remove the garbage thermal pad off the heatsink, Clean the CPU and heatsink completely, Apply a small ammt of thermal paste and reassemble. Be advised it will eventually Short Caps and MOSFET's shutting down leaving you with a dead machine. Good luck!

Could be Heat, sounds like the system is shutting down to protect the processor. Let it sit shut down over night and see if it runs longer when it's cooled down. Is the fan running?

Auto shut down

Are you using it when it shuts down?
Is it going into hibernate mode or completely shutting down.

If it is in use when it shuts down, it may be overheating. Check to see if the air exhaust ports have a breeze and if it is hot. Can you hear the fan run?

Often, when the fan runs, it picks up dust which settles inside on the cpu's heatsink an prevents proper airflow and you may have to open it to clean it.
