Having problems with your Compaq Armada M700 Notebook ?

My Compaq Armada m700 will shut down on it's own. When I try to restart it the screen is really messed up. If I let it sit and cool down it will then reboot okay. Is this because it is getting too hot and is this going to fry the motherboard? Is there a way to keep it from getting so hot?


Answers :

It's either heat or virus related. 1st clean your vents with a can of compressed air. 2nd listen to make sure your fan is spinning. If these are all clean & working then run a good anti-virus program to make sure your laptop is not infected. If heat is still a problem you can purchase a laptop cooling pad for around $30. Hope this helps.

I am working on an HP Pavillion a1220n Desktop and I am getting different bootups each time.
