Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

The laptop heats itself a lot

Hi,

My only concern is the laptop heats itself a lot. The fan is working constantly, it produces noise and the laptop expulses a lot of heat; even the keyboard sometimes is hot. I try to keep it with good ventilation.

Is it normal in the Pavilion serie dv9000 or do I need to check something else?

you can notify me by email in elkin.ospina@gmail.com as well.

Thanks

The inside of the laptop may have a lot of dust in it and may need to be cleaned. It might also be worth while to get a laptop cooler. Something like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/aerotus/98138764/

How to Prevent Laptop Overheating


There are some laptops that get hotter than other laptops. Laptops get hot due to many factors such as capacity of the processor, cooling fans,ventilation, extra items such as modem, video cards. They all produce heat due to which laptop gets hot.

You'll find many examples on the Internet for the laptops which get hot. There are particular laptop models which produce excessive heat. For example, IMB T60,Apple Mac Book Aeros, Compaq 610, Dell D400 etc.

But you don't need to worry now because there are certain methods by which you can stop overheating of your laptop. These methods are discussed below.

Place your laptop on a cool flat surface while working. It will allow the air to enter your laptop. Some laptops have cooling fan underneath and blocking this will make your laptop hot quickly.

Buy a laptop stand from a laptop seller. It lifts your laptop few inches from surface of the table making a reasonable space for air to enter your laptop freely.

Dust your laptop regularly; it will keep your laptop's fan functioning properly for a long period. The fan needs to do an extra work when there is dust inside the laptop. If you dust regularly, the fan will not experience any difficulty.

Shut down your laptop before putting it in the bag. The atmosphere inside the bag may be too hot for your laptop, and it can damage your laptop.

When the battery is full, unplug the charger. People make a common mistake leaving the laptop plugged in. Due to the constant supply of electricity to the laptop will heat its battery as a result it will overheat your laptop.

You can find certain kinds of items in many electronic stores for keeping your laptop cool. Cooling pad is a most common equipment to keep your laptop cool that sits beneath your laptop and is powered on with the help of USB port. It increases the airflow inside the laptop. So, cooling pad is the best you can take to keep your laptop cool and maximize its performance.

Give your laptop a little break if it is getting hot. It can shut down itself to protect any kind of damage due to overheating. This is an indication that your laptop needs a little break.

Do not expose your laptop to the sunlight for a long span of time.

For a week now my laptop has been overheating,then will shut itself down,the overheating happens rapidly,all internet connections have slowed exponentiallyy as a result,is it fan related?the laptop is


The laptop will need to be dismantled down to the motherboard level, use a can of compressed air attach straw and blow out all ports, heatsink and fan. It might be a good idea to remove both for closer inspection and several good blast of air for good measure, and check the thermal paste between the heatsink and processor ic has not dried out.

Whenever I play video or work on my computer for an extended period of time there is a loud and very obnoxious noise that is intermittent. I believe it might be the fan


It is most likely the fan. When doing things like watching flash video (e.g. YouTube or Hulu), it uses a lot of CPU power, thus your fan needs to spin in order to keep your computer from overheating.

OK I think my laptop makes noise because of the fan.


Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

It is normal for the laptop's fan to make noise. Sometimes, the noise will not be as bad. The noise actually depends on how hot your laptop is. The hotter the laptop becomes, the louder the fan noise. Your laptop will produce heat depending on the load of the laptop's processor. So if you are multitasking on your laptop, expect the fan to spin faster because it will try to eliminate the extra heat being generated.

I just have a quick tip for you, never use your laptop on top of a bed or any soft surface because the vents under the laptop will not work properly.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

Suddenly shutting off power sometime beeping


Hi,

there was a problem with notebook overheating and it would be fixed by cleaning the cooling component ,check the heat sink and the fan. The notebook processor produces a lot of heat when the notebook is turned on you check

If the fan working fine, then check if the heatsink is clogged. In some cases you can clean the heat sink with compressed air,

Cpu fan noise problem


It appears that the 1GB RAM that you installed is generating more heat due to the density of the chips they require more power. This is what is causing the fan to work harder. To verify this you can re-install the original memory and see if the fan noise reduces due to lower heat.
