I have a compaq presario v5000 that keeps on turning off.
I am fixing the laptop but everytime I go to install windows 7 the computer shuts off.
I have tried new ram / new hard drives and etc
But everything fails
The computers fan works when it comes on but it can be very loud
I am thinking it might be over heaing and turning off during installation
Mainly because when I start it up for the first time in a while it tends to get further into the installation rather then starting it up over and over again
The keyboard only works with some keys (the pins look fine)
Plus the mouspad does not work either (I was not sure if it was driver issues or somthing)
What should I do, if it is overheating what do I try to do on the laptop?
-- Replace the heatsink? How can the heatsink go bad?
-- Try better Thermal Paste? (never had a problem with my paste before)
Any / all advice is apreciated!!
