Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

Computor cutting out.....Remedy ??

Turning on ......no response..... durning short periods while on will cut off
i have a hp pavilion dv6000 "entertainment PC" laptop. it has 2G of RAM and runs vista. I just purchased a 22" flal screen monitor for home use. Now, since using the large screen monitor (via the laptops VGA port), my laptop frequently shuts down when I have many apps running (Windows Media Center, iTunes, IE, visio, etc). there is no warning...it just turns off. I presume that it is either a power or cooling problem...I lean more towards cooling since the problem occurs when I have many apps running; If I just have one or two "light" appls running, my laptop is fine on the 22" lcd monitor. Can I get my cooling upgraded?? or is this a power problem? or both??

As per your description, I understand that the issue is with overheating of the Notebook because of which it is turning off after running for some time.
First of all, Notebooks are not meant for heavy computing where they are designed for computing on the move and they cannot handle all the tasks we generally use in Desktop computers.
Coming to the issue, there will be some settings in the BIOS where the Notebook will be turned off when it reaches or exceeds certain temperature.
If the computer is allowed to run even at this temperatures, the Processor and Motherboard will burn causing serious damage to the computer.
First of all, check that the Cooling fan of the Notebook is free from dust so that it can spin at required speed and blow the enough air to maintain the temperature of the processor.
Additionally, see that the cooling fan vent of the Notebook from where hot air is blown away is dust free since if is blocked hot air will not go away and it will be circulating inside the Notebook making the notebook hotter and situaions will turn worst.
Blow the Cooling fan at the bottom of the Notebook and the cooling fan vent at the rear of the Noteook using Air Blower so that the dust which might be blocking them will be removed and there will be better cooling available.
Additionally, see that there is enouth room available at the bottom of the Notebook for enough ventilation.
You can also try using notebook cooling solutions like Cooling Fans which will be placed at the bottom of the Notebook and having two fans. These devices will be connected to the USB Port of the Notebook for power and blowing air to cool Notebooks.
Hope this helps...

Laptop keeps cutting off seems to get hot fast


Hi:
The DV6000 series of notebooks have a problem with motherboard issues, to include WiFi Failure, video problems, and other issues. You can do your own research on this, but it is pretty widespread, to the dv2000, dv6000, and dv9000. Many HP owners were offered enhanced warranties, and at the minimum, received a discount on repair.

See what you can do, as it won't get any better for you.
