Its twelve months old, the specs are

XP service Pack 2
192 Ram
2.12.ghz
mobile amd athlon(tm) XP2800+

It has 40gb HDIt just keeps cutting out, i have had it for a out a year with no problems at all, but about 3 weeks ago, it just started cutting out, it seems to happen when i am running a program where it has to do alot (If you know what i mean, i ain't the mot computer lit person ), for instance, a program such as Winavi cpnverter, when i am trying to convert avi to DVD, it will get to about 10 percent then cut out, as if the power has been turned off, i formatted the comp, but it is still happening

this is the sort of laptop i am using http://www.ciao.co.uk/Compaq_nx9005_Notebook__5346890

Help me !!!!!!!



I posted this thread a while ago, But it still is happening, someone said the memory is very light for running XP, do you know where i could download 2000 and if i did, would it run better?


I don't really care about whether it 98, 2000 or XP, I only really use it for downloading and converting stuff, so it doesn't really bother me


What do you think?

it is most likely it is overheating,

try cleaning out the air vents with a soft hoover brush and if you are more adventurious try opening it up and cleaning out the heatsink and vent from the inside

Did some posted get deleted or something?


I know they did, but why?


Anyway, someone suggested something called memtest

Could you explain more?
