HP ZV6000 Fan Making Noise

Ok. So I have the laptop apart, no problems. I also ordered a new (and correct fan) to replace the old fan making noise.

Now, with the new (and old) fan there was a "sticky thing" attached to the fan base, so that when you installed the fan it was over top of the ATI Graphics chip.

Now, with the old fan,this sticky thing was actually on the ATI chip.

SO...does this sticky thing stay on the fan base and just sit over the ATI chip or does it actually go on the ATI chip as a thermal paste would on a CPU Chip?

Thanks!

I had a similar problem on my zv6000, but I've tracked it down to the fan in the middle (not the one above the CPU with the heatsink).

For anyone else that doesn't feel like taking your laptop apart twice (once to get the part number and twice to put the new fan in after you get it online, etc.), the fan is a Sunon Maglev GC 056015VH-A. HP doesn't carry them in the parts store anymore, but I ordered mine online from an independent retailer.

I assume the "sticky thing" is on the heatsink and the fan is attached to the heat sink. Then yes the "sticky thing" (ie thermal paste) should be placed on the ATI chip.

My **** hp dv8000 makes a grinding buzzing noise and it's annoying as hell.


A laptop has become a very convenient and mobile way to stay connected with work, to communicate with peers, to research, to take notes and to do just about anything related to computing. However, when the convenient laptop gets noisy, it is an irritation to everyone. The noise maker in a laptop is almost always the fan, and it can be fixed by cleaning or replacing.

1.Unplug the laptop and remove the battery. Of course, you don't want to do this until you have shut down any programs that were open and shut down your computer normally. Be on the lookout for static electricity--don't touch other electrical devices while you are doing this and touch something metallic to discharge any static from your body before toughing the inside of the laptop.

2.Remove the screws that cover the back of the computer. This will differ from laptop to laptop, depending on your make and model. Set the screws aside and lift the cover off. You should be able to see the small square fan that cools your laptop. If you have had your computer running for a while, there may still be some rather hot components, so be careful.

3.Inspect the fan for a buildup of dust. If you can see obvious debris in the way, use a small vacuum hose to **** the dirt out of the area. Be very careful not to get too rough, as the inside of the laptop is fragile.

4.Remove the fan if there is no obvious buildup. This usually means unscrewing it and undoing the wiring. Write down the information on the fan such as the part number and serial number to order a new one. You may find one in your local computer parts store.

5.Install the new fan in the reverse order of how your removed the old fan. Screw everything back together and put the back cover on. Replace the battery pack and plug the laptop in. The new fan should run smoothly and quietly.

I hope it helps.

I am having HP pavilion Dv6703tx model laptop,But my problem is that it's making a noise i mean fan noise.so please help me how to remove this noise.


This can be because of two reasons.

First : Dust is settled in your fan surrounding and the air in/outlets. Cleaning the dust can reduce the noise upto a great extent.

Second : The processor got older and now the fan has to over work to take away the heat, this happens with the aging of the laptop. Some processes and programs may overload your system, so it can also may be a cause.

Try a complete virus scan. Clean the air outlets near the fan. Here are the ways to clean the outlets.

The first easy attempt: Blow hard into the cooling fan air inlets and outlets. Chances are good that the fan noise decreases immediately.
Second more serious attempt: Open up your laptop (be careful!) by for instance, depending of model, removing the keyboard usually by removing a couple of screws on the back of the laptop and maybe some locking straps on the front. Then remove all dust you can see by for instance blowing hard on and around the cooling parts mentioned above. Note: Saliva and laptop electronics is not a good combination so be distinct but careful. Good luck!

Grinding fan noise HP dv6 1130TX


First, if you just purchased the unit, you should have the problem fixed by HP under warranty.
HP offers a extended 1 year from the date of purchase. Thats 2 years on startup problems.
You are correct on the noise comming from the fan.
This will not go away and may get worse.
If the fan slows down or stops when needed, the CPU will go for a walk.
Email HP customer care and log your problem.
Make sure you have reg. your unit first.

Insect buzzing noise.


If you feel the that the HDD or the fan is not making the insect buzzing noise then you maybe right it is the RAM... Open the ram slot and check how many RAMS are in there if there are two then remove the top RAM and keep it aside and start the system to check if the other RAM is making the noise...If there is no sound then check the same RAM which is in the system in the other slot and check if you are getting the noise...Then remove the RAM and then place in the RAM that was kept outside to check if the same happens...If the same happens at a particular slot then the slot is the problem and not the RAM....If one RAM is making a problem then you need to contact HP for the RAM....Please contact me if you need any guidance further down from here

The fan is making a lot of noise. this has


Is the laptop dirty inside?

If it hasn't been cleaned out regularly, with a can of compressed air for computers, more than likely it is.

Laptops typically have a poor cooling design. For one, everything is crammed into a tiny box.
For two, there is a small duct, (Air Intake Duct), that draws air in.
For three, laptops typically just have 1 small fan.
For four, the Air Intake Duct is located on the bottom of a laptop, or on the side.
This is an excellent (?) area to draw foreign debris in. Another word for foreign debris, would be CRUD.

Hair, Food Crumbs, Lint, Dirt, Dust, and so on.

A laptop's cooling systems primary function is to keep the Processor at a certain temperature. If the processor becomes too HOT, it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
NO Processor, No computer!

1.The excessive fan noise can be that the fan is spinning at top rate, trying to keep the processor cool. It's having a hard time doing that, because the fan cannot draw enough air in. (Clogged Cooling System with Crud)

2.The excessive fan noise could be that the fan's bearings are bad.

3.The excessive fan noise could be that the Processor is running at 100 percent, (100%), and the fan is running at full speed, in order to keep the processor cool.
Perhaps caused by a virus, or some sort of anti-virus program, or running more than one virus program. (Installed a new anti-virus program lately?)

Hp laptop dv9500 noisy and loud fan ...


The sound you are hearing is probably the fan, This fan has a noisy bearing and will eventually lock up and the fan will stop spinning and therefore the CPU will overheat and shutdown.
The fan needs to be replaced.

Fan Noise


You can squirt a little of that sewing machine oil very sparingly into the centre of the fan. Else you can replace the fan it sounds like something is worn who knows your oil might boost it up to becoming better. It is a hardware problem and nothing to do with your software or firmware.
