I have a Compaq Presario F572US to which turns off on occasion and tries to reboot but fails. I then take a blow dryer to the heat sink side for a couple of minutes and will come on and work again for several days. I was reading this might be a bad nvidia card. Will changing th Bois help the situation and if so, how do I go about doing this. If I take it in to have it fixed what do I say as to not get riped off on them changing all kinds of parts to drive the price up.

If your computer occasionally shuts off it may be due to overheating. As a safety precaution your computer will shutdown upon reaching a certain temperature. If you are using your laptop in bed, and it is resting on a blanket or some other object is blocking the fan it may cause the laptop to overheat. Try elevating the laptop or getting a laptop mat with built in fan to help keep it cool. If there is an issue with the Nvida card changing the BIOS will not help.

Error fan showed up on screen when trying to reboot. Then shuts down. The 2 fans That I can see are both running.

More than likely its referring to the PROCESSOR fan, notice the fan on the heatsink the cools the processor,, Thats bad, or the heat sink needs cleaning.. Clean the heatsink first and if that fails replace the fan.

Compaq HP Presario F572US just turned off.

Remove the battery and plug laptop power into the wall (or power strip).
Turn ON laptop without battery.
It should start.
After Windows has settled, put battery back in and let it charge up.

Hope this helps!
