Question about HP Pavillion ZV6000 Notebook
I have a 2004 HP ZV6000 laptop. It worked fine until about 6-8 months ago when it began to shut down completely. At first it was sporadic but now it's every time. We tried a laptop cooler and it helped but was short lived. Now we have it sitting on a makeshift box with a hole and a regular fan under it. It stays on a lot longer but will still shut down sporadically.
Also, the r key is sticking. If you even hover your finger above it, you have a million r's on the page before you knoww aht happened.
Please help. We have bought newer models for us but are passing this down to our teen son and would like to find a good solution without having to put more money in it than it's worth.
The heatsink is obviously clogged with dust, adding the extra cooling like you have has helped but the build up of dust has obviously now become critical. You can try blowing compressed air into the proccessor/heatsink vents in the back of the case but the best answer is going to to open the case and physically brush/blow the heatsink clean.
If you feel confident enough to open the case, this site can help you with some pointers:
