Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000Z Notebook
I GOT A COMPAQ PRESARIO V5000 AND I INSTALLED WINDOWS VISTA ON IT AND DECIDED I DIDNT LIKE IT SO I JUST LET MY LAPTOP CHILL FOR A LITTLE BIT UNDER MY BED. AND ABOUT A MONTH LATER I FOUND A SOLUTION ON HOW TO DOWNGRADE BACK TO WINDOWS XP AND NOW WHENEVER I GOTO TRY TO INSTALL XP OR POWER ON THE COMPUTER IT SHUTS OFF EITHER AFTER IT GETS ALL WARM OR ABOUT 15-20 SECONDS RANDOMLY AND I THOUGHT IT WAS THE BATTERY SO I BOUGHT A BRAND NEW ONE AND ITS NOT THAT...
CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ANSWER MY PROBLEM???
I had noticed that some people didn't install the AMD update for processor voltage changing. It is basically an update to allow your computer to run at a slower speed when not doing anything very hard like web surfing. Since your processor would be running at full speed all the time it would have a tendacy to overheat and shut down.

I do not believe this is OS related.
Dust bunnies under your bed? The CPU might be overheating. Check for dust and lint blockage in the cooling fins at the lower left rear. Vacuum the stuff out.
I have repaired 3 V5000s overheating because of dirt.
When you are trying to solve problems, remove the battery and run on AC. The battery is just another variable to complicate the issue.
