Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario F730US Notebook ?

My Compaq is doing the exact same thing!

\015 It turns itself on and off periodically.Then returns to normal after taking the battery out for a few minutes (I guess it cools down in the process) I have the top f the line Norton Anti-everything bad and it detects nothing.I won't ever own one again. It's only 18 months oldfor crying ou loud\015

Welcome to the wonderful world of HP and their support......none!! I have rebuilt so many of these things because they have cooked themselves well done, I can take them apart in my sleep. First, go to the HP support and drivers page, put in your model number and see if they have a BIOS update for your laptop. The new BIOS update they are putting out supposedly has a new algorithm to make the laptops fan run more efficiently and longer and faster to help keep melt downs from happening. Then I would suggest opening the laptop to expose the processor and heat-sink and purchasing and installing small square copper sheets over the processor and graphics or north-bridge chip. These can be identified by the fact that the heat-sink already has heat dissipating media on the right areas already....just replace it with the copper and then a VERY thin layer of thermal paste.

I'll give you the link to the service manual if you want to give it a shot. Good luck ParrotHead PC Repair
