my compaq laptop shuts down even when being charged...

I have a Compaq laptop and a couple of weeks ago, I got a new hardrive and a whole new XP program on it. Yesterday I got a new battery for it. Even when I put the new battery in, it still had to be plugged in for it to work and it worked all night. Now it won't even work with it charging. I go to log on and then automatically it shuts off. I thought it was the cord to charge it, but i went out and bought a new cord and it did the same thing. What is wrong with my laptop???

Seems it needs repair. HP/Compaq can do that for you.

Take care that it doesn't cost too much.

Sounds heat related.

I wonder if the heatsinks are clean, the fans working and if the heatsink is seated properly. You seem to have replaced some parts but I can't tell if you performed the usual yearly maintenance.
