Question about HP Pavilion dv8000z Notebook

1 Answer

Our HP pavilion dv8000 keeps getting very hot and shutting down.

After about 15 minutes of using itunes. If you are on the inter net it takes a little longer befor it turns itself off. I think it may have a hairball as our kitten has quite long hair.

I am trying to decide what to do first I think I need to pull the key board off and look under it to see if cat hair is keeping the fan from functioning?

If cat hair is the case can i just use my vacumm with say the crevice tool to vacumm any cat hair out of the lap top?

I am also trying to get my husbands Iphone synchronised do you think putting the laptop on an ice blanket will help to manage it's heat.

Sorry so many questions, I have not ever done any work in a laptop only on PC's.

    This isn't a total solution but I felt I should update. Last night I pulled the key board off the laptop & have pulled out the hard drive. I am currently working on getting down to the next layer and take off the plastic that is in the way so that I can see the fan and the chip set then I sure hope that I can figure out the problem.

    I believe some of the problem is that an adult in our household spilled at least one Starbucks coffee drink on the keyboard think that I may have to replace the keyboard.

    I am hoping that our problem with heat management is all the cat hair & dust within the case. However I do not know how to test to find out if the mother board or the chip set are faulty.

    Does anyone know how to test a mother board or a chip set? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    My HP Pavillion zd8000 also crashes after being turned on for about 20 mins - probably because it is overheating. What should I do?

Do you have some kind of resource CD? there is always a scanner tocheck the entire computer. If you have no Resource CD Call your manufacturer and tell them the model number and ask them for a Resource CD for your computer.

Where can I buy a lower price HP PAVILION DV8000


It's much better to buy the battery from the manufacturer's website. The transaction is a lot safer and reliable. Take there are two categories of battery the ORIGINAL and REPLACEMENT. Normally the highe mAh capacity has the longer battery life. The price of REPLACEMENT batteries are much lower than the ORIGINAL batteries.

You can view the product on this site:

My hp dv 8000 Pavillion laptop will turn on and then it immediatly shuts down after 5 seconds or so


Power drain would be a better solution in this case. 1.first shut down the comp 2.unplug the charger 3. remove the battery and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .
and if this doesn't help
then try to take out the ram or memory chip from the computer and place it back.
