Compaq

I have a 2005 Compaq R 4000 Running Windows 7, 1 of my 2 cooling fans quit working and the computer turned off. I tryed to restart and all I get is Windows Boot Manager on the top of the screen below it says

  1. Hello JJolly;

    Are both your cooling fans working again?
    You'll probably need to fix that fault before it's safe to use the laptop without the risk of it shutting down again.
