HP dv1000 fan problem

I have a HP dv1029 (part of the dv1000 series) and have a problem with the fan for which I'd really appreciate your input.

For the past few months, the fan noise has been been getting noisier than normal...and then finally the fan wasn't turning on all the time and the unit started overheating .

After Googling the issue, a couple of weeks back I took it into the service centre. They took it apart and gave it a good clean, mentioned that there was had been alot of dust accumulation and that it now no longer overheated.

However I'm now noticing that the fan is still often not swtiching on...although the unit has NOT been overheating and switching itself off as it had been before the repair - and i've been leaving it on all night at times.

Interestingly, when i turn the unit over and gently (through the grill) touch/prod the fan with a toothpick, it then begins to function again. Though this usually only lasts for an hour or so before slowly stoppping again.

I assume the bearings on the fan have gone or the fan as a whole needs to just be replaced.

My question is this...

Should I go and buy just a new fan...or a fan AND heat-sink unit? Looking at HP's part's lists, they appear to be two different units.

I'm not confident enough to take my unit apart and do the repair myself...but I do wish to save unecessary repair time by my technician. (HP's Spare Parts Centre is just near my home.)

Thanks in advance for your help and any general suggestions.

    Hi Guys,

    Ended up just going with the fan replacement alone option and seems to be OK.

    Thanks.

Why dont you try to use little bit of spirit or petrol and clean the dust properly by brush. And than check it. and during this cleaning process kindly keep system off and when you clean it and spirit or petrol disappear completely than start the laptop and check it.

Hp pavilion dv1000 fan not working


Try to clean your fan with anti rust oil, maybe due to old age the mechanism inside your fan is already clogged.

I want the replacement motherboard part number


The part number you posted on the FixYa site is correct for a replacement board. It is actually designed for the DV1300 series but will work iin many DV1000 series notebooks. If you get on E-Bay and put that part number in the search box, you will find many that are for sale and under 120 bucks. Good luck

HP Pavilion dv1000 heating problem during accessing internet.It works fine often when laptop is not connected to internet. Any suggestions is appreciated.


Try checking the fan, if you see dusts clear them out. If you have a USB fan, its highly recommend you use it. My Answers maybe incorrect, because I do not use heated laptops or PC Desktops.

No it is not a problem. The power dissapiation in the adaptor causes it to become hot.
