Actually if you can hear the fans running then what you need to replace is the thermal compound on the processor chip it is like 5-10 dollars cad at your local computer store and you can re paste it on your chip and it cools the laptop substantially i had the same problem... it oveheated within minutes and now i can let it sit right on my lap or on the couch and every 1-2 years it should be replaced... and it will help make your laptop have a longer life span

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.

I have a presario R3000 notebook. just like to ask if the fan for ventilation underneath is working in a certain temperature. or it will automatimatically running when i plug in.. can some one help me....


There are several models of this notebook depending on the processor. Some only have one fan, otehrshave two. When operating the fan should start running. I have the higher spec R3000 and my fans start soon after the machine is turned on and sometimes throttle down if I have no activity. Upon starting to use it, they soon start again. Considerable hot air will come out the right back and side.

DO NOT block the air intake(s) on the bottom of the unit !!! You can burn up the processor.

My laptop Presario R3000 won't turn on


let it sit for awhile. then try to power it on. if it powers up and then suts off again, the processor fan is probably bad and needs to be replaced.

Also, take the battery out and tryy to power it up.

Compaq Presario R3000. Push power button and lights come on then goes dead before booting. Occassionally Windows will start booting the it goes dead. Any suggestions?


Either the power supply is putting out too low voltage or the power jack is bad.Try moving the ac adapter tip around while its starting up to see if it keeps it running or shuts it off.If it makes no difference try another ac adapter that does work for sure and see if thats the problem.If neither approach works,then the HDD may be seizing or one of the ram sticks may be bad.Some sort of hardware conflict can cause shut downs.You would have to take the bootstrap approach to narrow it down to one pacific component.

Compaq presario r3000 amd athlon laptop cuts off after 10 minutes


from my experience this might be one of two things...

if it's shutting down while you're installing windows, i'm thinking you might have a problem with the motherboard channel for your CD drive. i saw this happen to a computer at work - we couldn't install windows because it cut off halfway through and blue screened on us.

it might also be a case of a bad hard drive, if you have any testing utility like drive fitness test i'd give that a shot. it sounds like a new one, but they're bad out of the box sometimes.

hope this helps

I have experienced similar problems. I found that if the fans were REALLY dirty, the system would overheat and shut down with no warning.
