Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

1 Answer

Hi, I have a compaq CQ50 and it shuts down when the screen is moved. NO clue how to fix this. It is out of warranty by 8 months. Sometimes if the screen is moved it will just go to sleep other times it shuts down completely but I don't have to push the power button to turn it on I just have to wiggle the screen

The wires to the screen are frayed and short when moved. You should fix that ASAP, or you will end up with a fried laptop.

My Compaq Presario CQ50-103NR Notebook PC keeps shutting down. Sometimes right away sometimes after a few minutes. The left side of laptop seems to get hot while the right side stays cool. Can You please...


Hi:
You most likely have a heat problem, as you have realized. To fix the problem, your heatsink/fan assembly needs cleaned, and then reinstalled with new heat sink compound. Some disassembly is required, so this isn't an easy job. If you go to a reputable shop, and tell them what you want them to do, rather than just tell them your laptop is shutting down, you should get it done for a fair price!

My compute will not turn on


The laptop might be overheating, sometimes when the laptop cant get any ventilation it shuts down and will not properly power up till the temperature issues are delt with.
But you usually get at least a few seconds of power before it shuts down again, so it may not be that, sounds a bit more like the CPU is dead and will need replaced.

To be honest, I would have Compaq repair it. If it's only 6 months old it is under warranty, USE the warranty. It sounds like the screen has a short or the cable does. Make Compaq fix it.

Broken fan on compaq


don't keep running it until you replace the fan. Look for one on ebay or around the web. It is shutting down because of heat. A $20 fan could cost you your whole laptop if you keep running it.

If you shut it down when WinFlash was running, then bad news - BIOS corrupted. This means faulty motherboard. Solution - replace motherboard.
