Having problems with your Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook ?

Computer keeps turning it self off

\015 Any where between 30 seconds and 5 minutes\015

Answers :

\015\012Hi vflood, This is usually due to a heat issue, possibly from accumulated dust inside the machine. Take the side off and, using canned air available in most electronics departments, blow the dust off of the cpu, heatsink, and fans as well as the ventilation areas. Then blow the rest of the dust out as well.

\015\012Also, if you have altered your operating system power settings recently, you may want to revert them to default.

\015\012Hope this helps, and please don't forget to rate/vote!
