HP Pavillion tx2-135dx laptop overheats


hi.Fan Always Runs Or Laptop Overheats And Shuts Itself Off
Warning! Before Disassembling Laptop always unplug power and remove the battery.
Laptops that shut down without warning are often experiencing overheating issues. Overheating may be a symptom of age, of clogged ventilation or impending failure, but it can also result from simply using the laptop in a bad location. Before you try to take the laptop apart to look for problems, it pays to patiently troubleshoot the symptoms and see if an easy fix is possible. I wrote The Laptop Repair Workbook to teach basic laptop technology and troubleshooting to regular people and techs in training. The overheating flowchart below is one of twelve flowcharts in the book.wfwmoavismn7iaaaaasuvork5cyii=

HP Pavilion dv1000 PC Notebook My PC shuts down automatically


This is a common problem for many laptops.Its shutdown because of over heating.msoufeer5_2.jpg
Each mobile processoe has a max temperature rating. when the temperature reches certain degree
the processor shuts itself down to prevent damaging the chip.The number 1 cause of heat related issue is dust bunnies.

Dust is a pretty good insulator and it will block your laptop's airflow when it build up over time.The easiest way clean it is to use a can of compressed air and it through the air flow event.

If you are handy you can also take out the key board and clean the inside. you can see the cooling
fan on most laptop once you removed the key board.In some case even the out side look clean but
if you take apart the fan assembly you will see tha ther's still dust collecting inside

Clean dust and try again

I have a HP Pavilion dv9000 purchased in Nov. 09. Had problems booting up within warranty period and sent it back and they said they fixed the problem with putting a new "mother" board in in....


Overheating issue is the common with this model notebooks, in order to isolate this issue clean the air vents of the notebook using air blower and update the BIOS of your notebook according to the product number. You can download the BIOS update from HP. com support & drivers.

If the issue exist after that, you need to change fan on the motherboard,

This will resolve the issue.. Try it!

All the best............

My laptop shut off by itself, and wont turn back on. It is a new laptop. It is charged.


Sounds like a thermal shut down switch was tripped. In plain English that means it probably overheated. Was it on your bed or your lap. There is only one small vent that draws air in and one that exhausts it. If these a covered the laptop will get hot very fast shut down to prevent further damage. You should also use a can of compressed air to blow those vents out on a regular basis to prevent blockage.

Hp laptop random shutdown - overheat?


Your CPU is likely overheating. Very likely the thermal conducting material between the CPU chip and the heatsink may have shrunk and now impeades the thermal transfer.
You may need to remove the heatsink and put new thermal paste and perhaps copper shim to restore the thermal contact to the heatsink.
