Having problems with your HP Presario V6420US PC Notebook ?

I have a Compaq Presario SR5233WM PC. My problem is the tower over heats and does an auto shut down. Has anyone else seen this before?

Answers :

This happens when the CPU overheats and shuts down (ie thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If the problem is not rectified, eventually the CPU will fail.
\015\012The problem is caused by a faulty CPU fan and or the fan and heat sink assembly is clogged with dust. The switch mode power supply fan may also be faulty or clogged with dust.
\015\012Check the CPU fan, if it does not spin freely then replace it. Also loosen and vacuum the dust off the heat sink.
\015\012Check the switch mode power supply fan, if it is faulty replace the fan or better still replace the power supply.
