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.

Wireless problem


What operating system are you using? Windows Xp or Vista?
Eaither way I advise you to Restore the system back to the day that it worked. If you remember what day it was still working, go under start - programs (or all programs in Vista) - accessories - System Tools - System Restore. At this point select "Restore my computer to an earlier time". Select the date, like 1 or two months ago (wathever date you remember it was working) and proceed. This tool leaves all your data and information untouched, but uninstall all the software you installed since that point. In Windows Vista, after you click continue to start the restore, it takes a while until it does something. It's normal don't worry.

Compaq presario v5000 - wireless button broke


The key on your keyboard is a shortcut to launch software.

Check near your clock on your taskbar or in control panel...if usung Windows wireless...if you are using 3rd party...then look in your program list to launch the program.

Good luck Sarah!
