Could also be a weak ac adapter or maybe even a faulty hard drive.Also bad ram sticks can cause shut downs as well

Sounds like overheating , probably due to the cpu or gpu fan/heatsing loosing contact, even a little knock could have caused this

Overheating on Compaq Presario Notebook Model C501NR


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

V4000 keeps shutting down after 10 mins or so.any ideas???


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

My laptop compaq 6735s will only stay on for a few minutes before shutting itself off and not working for a long time. Also, the area where the port is for the laptops charger get's exteremely hot. I don't...


This sounds like *********** board is overheating due to probably dust and fan not working properly. Try using air can to blow some of the stuff of off the fan from the bottom of the laptop but make sure you dont tip the can over while doing this because the air turns in to ice and it will mess up you laptop. If just blowing air don't work then you have to open it and clean it up.Hope this helps.

Compaq Presario F700 keeps turning on and off


At this point I assume you've tried to go into SAFE mode, and into BIOS with no luck. You're right about the overheating but I think the damage is done. If the unit will no longer stay on in any mode or condition then heat has ruined something. First easiest part to check is memory. The check the CPU (most laptops still have a plug in CPU). If neither of these are suspect then take everything off the motherboard, including the screen (I use and external monitor). If the problem still exists then it's time to use a scope.

Your machine is overheating. Try cleaning the vents with a can of compressed air and making sure the heat sync is free of dust. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the fans.
