Question about Compaq Pentium 4 , 1.5 GHz (244318-B21) Processor

1 Answer

Thanks for your message !!

Thanks for your message,
I haven't been able to reply because my computer has gotten worse since I posted the last message and haven't been able to use the machine at all.
I have cleaned the inside of the computer, and may I add, taken all the components out and cleaned them too, (as this was my first thought of rectifying the problem), but this didn't seem to work.
I have not attempted to reset the mother board as I don't know how.
Processor and fan malfunctions are now what I'm considering also, but as I don't know much about hardware I don't know how to run checks to enable a me to single out and identify the main cause of the shutdown.
It is a quite an old computer, (around 7 or 8 years), but has been running fine right up to this point.
I don't think it would be worth spending out to get a technician to look at it, so I would like to fix it myself and gain some insight into hardware issues, (it's always good to know whats underneath the bonnet).
So thanks again for your reply and hope to hear back from you soon.
Best regards,

Hi Kevin,
My daughter has the same problem with her laptop, do you find that when you move the screen slowly back and forth it either stops or gets worse ?
You will need to take your laptop in to an HP dealer and let them have a look at it.
