Question about Compaq Presario R3202US Notebook

1 Answer

I'm trying to fix a Compaq R3202US model laptop. The computer unexpectedly shuts down and sometimes has issues even coming on by pressing the power button. I have already changed the HD and installed 512MB of new RAM in the DIMM slot. I thought the HD was causing the computer to shutdown. However the problem is still present. I'm trying to eliminate the possibilities of what could be causing this issue. I think the battery is not good so I might need a new one. But could it be the AC adapter, the power button or maybe the interface when the AC adapter goes into the computer? Any help would be greatly appreciated

It sounds like it's overheating. I would open the bottom panel and see if any of the heat sinks seem detached from any core components like the processor or gpu.

It may be overheating. Try using a vacuum cleaner hose on the air vents, that will help to clear the ventilation for the radiator.

CHECK THE FANS! The biggest enemy to your laptop is HEAT! You just replaced the display it's very possible you inadvertently disconnected the cooling fan. Clean it while you have it apart dirt and dust prevent proper cooling

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

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.

Laptop shuts down


My Wife's computer started doing this for about a week or two, then all it did was keep trying to boot, nothing on screen, all lights come on. Seems there is an issue with certain models of compaqs and Hp laptops. If yougo to their website and chat with a rep, you may find you have one of these models they are giving a one time free fix, even if out of warranty.
They have ours right now.
