Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook ?

Laptop shuts off every ten minutes

\015 Hello,\015\012\015\012I have a cheap compaq presario laptop that has served me well, but I spilled some coffee on it (small amount) and ever since the fan sounds crappy and it shuts off every ten minutes or so. It was aided by raising it off the desktop to allow better air circulation, but it still powers down on it's own several times an hour. What could it be? Is it a short? Fan going out on me causing overheating? Virus? (I have gotten many alerts on norton of failed hack attempts, but they may be wireless providers rather than actual intruders...)\015

Hi.
\015\012
\015\012As you have mentioned that your notebook is overheating. I suspect that the issue is with the Fan of your notebook . However, to isolate the issue please try to install BIOS update and perform the Hard Drive self test.
\015\012
\015\012I am providing you steps to perform hard drive self test, because your notebook shutdowns randomly.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Here are the steps to perform Hard Drive self test.
\015\012
\015\0121. Restart the notebook.
2. Tap the F10 key as soon as the HP logo appears.
3. Using the arrow keys, navigate to Dignostics Menu and start the Hard Drive self test.
4. Once finished, navigate to Exit Menu, select "Exit Discarding Changes".
\015\012
\015\012If you are using XP operating system then in the 3rd step select Tools instead of Dignostics.
\015\012
\015\012I hope this will help you.
Probably the fact that the fan is not working at the correct speeds (faster when working on processes), because of probable deposits of sticky coffee is more than likely causing the shutdowns, especially if there is no screen warning coming up.
