Having problems with your Compaq Presario V4000 Notebook ?

MY V4000 ony runs when i tilt the while unit the left side has to be at least 3inches higher than the right if lowered it stops booting or after booting freezes when lowered until picked up again?


Answers :

How old is the machine? Sounds like it might be time for a new drive. Try this download Speedfan and click on the SMART tab and have it run a full diagnostic test. The part i am concerned with is the drive spinup. Sounds like the motor might be going out. Or you just have a loose connection in the machine somewhere.

It's probably overheating. Raising the one side is giving it more ventilation. Try blow some canned air through the fan openings and clear the dust out. Also try to see if you can tell if the fan is running. You may have a bad internal fan
