Compaq presario v2000 overheating issues...

I've had my laptop for 2 years and have gone through 2 hard drives, presumably (according to the technician) due to overheating or 'bumping' it. i don't use my laptop as much more than a desktop so jarring is not likely the issue...i was wondering if anyone else has had similar issues with the v2000, or if this could be a fan issue, as seems to be fairly common...it has never shut down on me, but does at times feel quite hot...the fan turns on, but perhaps is not doing enough? thanks for the input

    I have the same problem and now my fan has completely quit working. I am in the process of seeing if I can replace the fan but, for now I have bought a cooling pad to place my laptop on in order to be able to use it. This is the worst computer I've ever owned!

    my v2000 is also having the problem but i had heard that it was a problem with the thermal paste around the heat sink since the manufacture didn't apply any by placing thin metal sheet around it. if however they did then after 2 years it has completely dried up causing the cpu to overheat and shutdown. is there any instruction's to fixing the heat problem or applying the thermal paste to my laptop.

Yes, this is a fairly common problem with the v200o, caused by a lack of good fan airflow. Your best bet in using it would be to get a laptop pad. This will not only keep your laptop cooler, it will prevent your legs from blocking the fans when it is on your lap.

Good luck!

Backup your programs immediately to a thumb drive or external HD. The hard drive may be on the brink of failing. You can replace a hard drive, it's your information thats on it that you may not be able to if it totally crashes!
