Try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
also you could buy a laptop usb cooling pad 3-LED FAN USB NOTEBOOK LAPTOP COOLING COOLER PAD STAND or something similiar the cooling pads are very cheap and very good thing for your laptop
hope this helps

I love posts that use haywire words...
old Cq61 (310us) is it a 310? for sure, as the service tag shows?
no photo of screens, i can promise you that missing photo
is worth 1000 words !
does it run with them main battery out on line power AC?
it must for as long as you want too.

my guess, besides above test 1 on all laptops
is to
make sure its not overheating. and fan blows, and fan is not packed in lint if the GPU chip overheats it can go nuts. all can,.
we run temp monitor program that lets me see all that.
but im not teaching that now.
this PC has an LED screen so is very good.
but if hit, they break easy, super easy. kids playing thowing things at the screen or dropped PC.

The pC has and external VGA jack to test the PC on any VGA desktop monitor.. (barrow one for a day)

Compaq presario CQ40 is overheating within 30 minutes. Although cooling fan is working (fan sound is coming)

Laptop needs cleaning! Only experienced technician should open laptop, clean cooler and change thermal paste. This will solve the problem and save laptop from serious damage.

Hi, my Compaq CQ61 has video issues. It does not matter if it is a DVD playing with PowerDVD or Media Player or an online video through Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube when on full screen. The video often...

I think your video chip on the laptop is acting up.
This is especially true if you have an NVidia graphics chip on your laptop. They have the propensity to over heat and causing the soldered joints to crack or become separated from the motherboard and causing major issues with the laptop's video and overall functionality. Unfortunately the only way to repair this would be to replace the motherboard or have the video chip serviced professionally, the cost would be about the same.

In the mean time, try to clean out the air vents and place the laptop on a cooling pad to see if that helps.

Compaq Presario CQ61 - Keeps on crashing

Hi noam. It looks like a memory problem. Download a program called memtest. (it's a bootable CD). Restart the computer and boot from it. Do the test and verify you get no errors. If you DO get errors, it could be overheating or a virus. I hope this helps. Please dont forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

The center divider (between the doors) gets so hot you can't touch it. Other than that- it works and cools just fine.

ok that is entirely normal
that is your moulion heater, it is ment for two things
a. it keeps your seals soft and plyable
and b. it controls hot air entry to the unit when you open the door
it offsets the heat barrier with the door open,
that is what stops humidity from building up oin the machine
