This is usually a heating problem, try using compressed air and spraying the vents and cpu heatsink fan.

Do this while its off. If its really full of dust and junk, you may have to take it apart and clean it out. The processor usually has a heat sink and a fan that displaces air. Check all these. Also make sure the heatsink is screwed down properly, it may not be making good contact onto the CPU.

Also, note: When using your laptop, its good to have it on a flat surface that can help to displace heat from the bottom of the laptop, dont use it on carpet or in your lap.

Is it turning off with no warning? and is it when your doing something or just when its left idle? If its idel when it does this, it could be your power settings. You may want to check those.

I have compaq presario v3000 1. i would like to ask can i upgrade my graphics card.i mean do we have the option to upgrade the graphics card? 2. i got my laptop with vista basic installed in...


Windows 7 is superior to XP, in my opinion. If you have 7 there isn't any reason to go back to XP, which is no longer supported by Microsoft in a big way.

I think that the graphics card on a laptop is integrated onto the motherboard in ways such that upgrading to a better graphics card is not generally possible.

It's fun to think about these things, though.

Facing Problem with compac v3000 no display


First see if any monitor will work, plugged in at back? If works, check, just isn't been LCD monitor has been disabled by a key command, then if NOT work, it is probably Video card. OR actual LCD, OR the LCD power supply and/or Inverter? may also be bad connection to MB? Or Broken ribbon in lid, or case. Faulty sleep open/close LCD switch? Try those.

Can this HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter fit for Compaq Presario V3000 laptop? I doult that HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter on website:http://www.laptopbatteryshop.ca/hp-pavilion-dv9000-ac-adapter.htm...


Have a look at the label on the bottom of the V3000 laptop and check the voltage and amps power rating of the laptop.
If the DV9000 adapter has the same voltage and current rating (amps) or higher amp rating then it is suitable for the V3000 laptop, provided the power plug fits the V3000 power socket.

Compaq v3000 laptop no display led is glowing Compaq Presario v3000 no display, just led light wearing and fan is on.


Try using the function key for your display options

You should see a key related to your function key, generally a different color then the rest, labeled (F, Fun, FN, etc...) then look for a CRT/LCD, or LCD, or a symbol of a rounded square, or something resembling a monitor or screen.

Hold Fn and press that button, give it a few seconds. It should switch.

You can also hold a flash light up to the screen and see if there's any image, if this is the case then parts need to be replaced.

If you have any more questions please let us know. If this information has been helpful, please take a moment to rate the solution. Thank you.
