Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
The touchpad's left mouse botton often sticks and interacts with windows when i am not clicking on it. i have the touchpad currently disabled and i am using a mouse but it would be nice if anyone has an easy solution to this.
Above my keyboard, i have a touch mute and volume button. recently, the volume bar has been appearing in the middle of my moniter without me touching any of the volume controls. this started three weeks ago and then it occured once and since yesterday, it has happened twice. rebooting the computer takes care of the problem but this is obviously a time consuming and temporary mesure.
Over the last few days, my computer has overheated and shut down. I have had this computer a total of 40 days now. The laptop sits in a well aired area and the fan is working.
I am thinking of taking the computer to the shop but if i can fix this on my own, it would be better.

I have the same laptop but I can't help with the touchpad issue (must be a hardware issue b/c mine works fine....try unstalling the driverm then reinstall the driver). The problem with the volume I can help you with: go to start and type in MSCONFIG and click on the startup tab, then uncheck the onscreen display for quick touch (the name may vary) item.....then reboot....now the volume will still change without showing you the annoying window (takes care of the random volume changes also & if the volume doesnt react, just tap the Stop button a couple times then change your volume)
now, the overheating and shutting down issue: go to HP's support site support.hp.com and type in the exact model number on the bottom of your laptop. now you need to go to the drivers and downloads section. there scroll down til you see BIOS. download and run this b/c it updates the laptop to where the fan inside will run faster and more often to compensate for the laptop running hot. helped mine out a lot.
Another thought (volume): uninstall just quicktouch in Programs and Features from the control panel. it gets rid of the annoying ticking when you adjust the volume....helped me out a bunch.

Ok - your unit is have a ECD502 error - device access error codes are looping and eventually your unit will die an unnatural death. The overheating is more than likely caused by a clogged heatsink unit - this will cause you overheat / thermal shutdown problems - seeing as you have other devices playing up EG mouse problems , audio problems means you chipset is slowly failing. You guessed it - nvidia chipset = if your unit is still under warranty get it in for a new m/board right now.

Turning the TouchPad on and off
To switch the TouchPad on and off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad on/off button.
NOTE: If the TouchPad light is on (amber), the TouchPad is off.
