- Clean the CPU Fan with blower.
If while performing any step cpu goes to 100% then it seems problem can be due to hidden background running services, so i would suggest you to disable them with the help of Reginout, download it.

Computer keeps shutting down, while on the internet, then starts up again. cant install driver update that keeps popping up. brand new compaq presario 5820.


1. what driver update are you referring to?, are you sure you are following the proper update procedure, or that the proper driver was installed in the first place, if not, uninstalled device and driver and look for a proper and a more updated driver version and reinstall.
2. have you installed any new sofware or hardware, it may be corrupted or faulty, uninstall software or device and look for alternatives.
3. do you have an updated antivirus and antimalware sofware? obtain, update and scan you computer deeply as it may be virus causing this issues.

please provide more details about 1. and post back!

Ram, you should get a multimeter and, check the power supply first, second check the molex plugs. there could be a short with the wiring and or with the powersupply, systematically test all drives, including the motherboard, and the power switch.. the little lithium battery is not going to solve the problem for you. the battery holds information pertaining to dates, times related to the bios system. even when your pc is turned off there is trickling for the bios system in cordinates to the bios, time and date.

My hp deskdop model -sr2180nx, 32bit,1gb,vista,computer is really slow on startup and for explorer to appear, help please.


Hello markus1234,
I used to have slow start up problems and found a program called advanced system care. The free version works perfectly. Run install and open application. Run the main windows utility and diagnostic and this should help out the problem.

You may also want to try a program like malewarebytes which is free. Alot of the slowing could be due to spyware
