Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

My notebook overheats!!!!!

Is it true that AMD processors in notebooks produce much more heat than their INTEL counterparts????

i have an AMD turion rm-70 processor and i recently downloaded the SPEEDFAN software to keep a check on my notebook.

i was surprised to see temp ranging around 86 C to 96 C.

is it the normal temp for any notebook core(as the software was showing the core temp)???

How harmful are these high temperatures for my notebook in the long run????

Mine is HP Pavilion DV-5 1106-AX.

Pleez give some suggestions!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a HP dv2416us and it has alway run very hot. When I use PC Wizard 2008 it tell me that the video board is running as high as 113 deg C when I have a video playing. The CPU has it 105 deg C in the past and usually runs 85-98 deg C when I am working. The has always been this way. HP came out with a bios change to improve the fan control and these temperature are what I see after the bios update. Lately the display randomly mess up and just look like a bunch of different colored line and the machine will hang up. It does not seem to be related to temperature but who know, a chip on the video board may have gotten to hot and is starting to fail. HP extended the warintee on my machine type to 24 months if the video goes out or the Wifi fails. Great but what about me with a machine that can boil water. FYI if you put the machine on your lap making sure the air vents are clear it WILL burn your legs. I should also add that the temperatures above were measured with the laptop held up in the air well above any surface. So the air flow was as good as it can get. HP screwed me and othes on the laptop and will never admit. Also the battery which I never use went totally bad in less than a year. I think it is because of the heat. This is the last HP I purchase (I have had 3) because of the way they have approache the problem. My advice to others, stay clear of HP you can not trust them to do the right thing.

    i have a DV pavilion 4000 i also have the drama of overheating.. i approached HP just after my warranty ran out re the cd and dvd burners not working any more and they did not help. I have taken it to a reparer at my own cost to clean out dust and check fans etc.. it is very frustration since its supposed to be the BMW of computers

I have never heard of that about AMD cpus, on the contrary it has always been the Pentiums who overheated, nevertheless, it does sound like you are running a little hot, I would suggest a laptop cooler like an Xpad, that should cool it down down at least 5-10 degrees, try it you will be amazed what a difference they make.

    Oh I just realized your reading was in Celsius, that's 186.80-204.80 Fahrenheit, that is is extremely hot and you should not operate at those temperatures you are risking a core meltdown and possibly an electrical fire, I would suggest you chose teh Fahrenheit option in SpeedFan and see if the temperatures coincide and persist. Thanks for posting your problem I was gong to check my own cpu temps and forgot and this was a good reminder to get Speedfan BTW my temps are running at about 129 F and I have a Celeron processor. If your temps coincide and you can't cool down then get the notebook checked before you have some serious problems.

    Good luck with it.

I have acer extensa 4220 laptop amd motherboard and a amd turion tm 64 processor but dont know if if the processer will work with this board, do you know which processors work with this board.


I'd like to have more details for your extensa (the country that you bought from also) because officially this model has an Intel Celeron-M 530 processor at 1.73GHz, 533MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache. Here is the link with the official specifications (for the Extensa 4220 Series).

Which is better processor between amd athelon ,sempron, turion 64


Hello rakeshmedita,

The Turion is more of a mobile processor meant for laptops since it uses less power while the athlon is for desktops and uses a bit more power. The Turion might edge out the Athlon on performance but will beat the pants off it in power consumption. The sempron is a low-cost processor meant for entry level desktops. So, to answer your question it goes Turion, Athlon, Sempron.

Hope this helps, if so please leave some positive feedback. Thanks.

My notebook heats a lot!!!!!!


Hello, here is the deal, AMD and INTEL both have CPU's that have low heat. In your case you would have to buy a new laptop to switch from AMD to INTEL. The laptop motherboard take's only one socket type, for exp.. you would have to get another TURION at faster speeds or less speeds in the same socket family. Try to keep the vents open, sometimes the vents for the air from the fan come out the bottom not the back. You might want to invest in a laptop fan stand.

Amd turion x2 rm 70 mobile processor


I will be glad to share my little knowledge in this senario.
Basically, I am personally a fan of AMD processors who is the first to manufacture 64 Bit Processors for Desktops and Notebooks.
However, if you remember, Intel started concentrating on Performance and not on Speed after AMD was able to design processors which were able to outperform Intel processors with slower speeds.
So, you need to look into Performance and not into Speed of the Processor.
Coming to the processor installed in your notebook, it is normal but I recommend you to use Windows XP than using Vista since Vista need more RAM and processing power when compared to XP.
Also, Windows Vista Home Basic is the basic version among the Vista family with very little features.
Coming to the Heating issue, this is common for all Notebooks to heat up when used for long time since the Notebook parts are palced in a very small where if any part heats up, it is passed to other parts too.
Make sure that the Cooling Fan Vents in the Notebook are not filled with Dust.
You can find these vents located at the rear of the notebook from where the hot air should be emiting from inside the Notebook.
I recommend you to use a Vaccume Cleaner or Air Blower to blow away invisible dust which might be blocking the airflow.
Also, make sure that the Notebook is placed on a flat surface like a Table so that there will be air flow from the bottom of the Notebook and the Cooling Fan will be able to **** in the required air from the bottom and dissapate the heat generated by the internal components.
Also, check for any BIOS Update is available for your Notebook related to this issue and update with the same.
You need to contact HP Chat Support and get the exact BIOS Update for your notebook since updating the BIOS with incorrect Update will make the Notebook useless.

Hope this gives some idea about your doubts.....

Amd turion x2 rm70 vs intel core 2 duo t5750!!!!


I read this and don't believe you - yes the AMD dual core gets hot - yes AMD processor are HOT processors - is intel better - no there on par with AMD - the thu put rate is so close it doesn't matter - now vista basic is just that BASIC - if you want to bump it up - home premium 32 or 64 but ultimate 64 should get it going.

I got an AMD turion x2 64 processor in my new notebook n after reading reviews comparison to core 2 duo i m really tensed!


You made a good choice. In the CPU arena right now, the difference between the two CPUs is a toss up. The slight advantages of one vs. the other in benchmark tests is nominal and actually artificial..

What happens with an AMD CPU is with the associated GPU onboard. And with a 64bit processor, the number of apps and games that take advantage of 64bit CPUs has always been limited but they are growing. This will only become more and more numerous.

The main architectural difference in the two was in how the two cpus communicated and the AMD was first to use a bus between the two cores and the Intel had to go to the onboard memory controller and back. That was in the first inception. Still, AMD has been far in advance of Intel and Intel has played catch up in tricks inside the cores and how the north and southbridge took advantage of the cores' architecture.

Needless to say, I'm an AMD power user and my gaming rig has an AMD dual core on an Asus/Nvidia board and an Nvidia PCIe 9800 GPU.

In the long run, all modern notebooks require you to own a pad cooler to use these in your lap or not, they all produce heat. So, just get a good one designed for your laptop so it snaps into place and will keep your rig nice and cool.

At a LAN Party you won't suffer from having a dual core AMD cpu, you'll hold your own and it will be an even playing field and the wins will go to the person with the fastest fingers... as it should be.

Sleep easy friend,
