Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

2 Answers

My notebook heats a lot!!!!!!

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

i have a HP Pavilion dv 5 1106 ax notebook with an AMD TURION X2 RM-70 processor inside.
i recently downloaded this software SPEEDFAN to keep a check on my notebook temp.
i was surprised to see the temp hovering around the 80 C and the 90 C.(a max of 94 C when i was playing a game,playing music,browsing simultaneously).

even while i was just writing this to you...........temp was in the early 80's C.


Is this a normal temperature????

What harms can a high temp like this can have to my notebook in the long run??

In the worst case should i consider of switching to a CORE 2 DUO.......i mean replacing mine with it if that is possible????

First of all, AMD in generall gets hotter than INTEL, but thats very high heat you having there. My mind goes to the cpu, maybe its not that good isolated whit the zinkpasta.

Second, you cant change from AMD to INTEL without changing the MoBo, there is diferent sockets on AMD and INTEL.I have a Ferrari loptop myself with an AMD, i can fry eggs on it from the heat when i play games. Therefore its very importat to clean the fan as often as possible. But 80 degrees celsius is way to much. With that temperature you soon will burm the HDD and or the MoBo as i did on mine.


Good luck to you

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.

HP DV9715NR laptop starts up and shuts down as fast as it starts up


These older HP laptops are notorious for overheating. Heat is the #1 enemy for computers.
If it turns off right away, you could try opening the laptop up, cleaning the dust and lint out and replacing the thermal pads. OR even using good thermal past instead of pads. And use a laptop cooling pad. That should work.
If it turns on but no video then the Video chip needs to be reflowed. The heat has caused the Solder to melt and not make full contact with the motherboard. But this fix usually lasts a couple of months. It's just a bad cooling design, these older computers with two chips, one processor and one Graphics are the problem. The graphics chip especially produces way too much heat for the tiny heat-sink HP decided to put in the DV Laptops.
I've had both a DV9000 and DV6000 and both had the same issue with the graphics chip producing way too much heat. The newer laptops with Intel i3, i5, i7 and AMD A4, A6, A8 chips and the like, have the graphics integrated with the processor and heating is no longer an issue.
In my opinion they are not worth fixing. I would take out the Hard Drive and put it in an external enclosure to pull all your data out. You can then reformat it and use it as extra external drive. I would just invest in a new or used computer that uses the processors that combine both the processor and graphics in one chip.
You can still find the old type like Pentium and Celeron computers but they are slow and still use two separate chips. My 2 cents, and then some lol. Good luck.

Describe your HP Pavilion dv6000z 15.4" Notebook Laptop PC (AMD Turion 64 X2 Duo Core TL-50 1.60GHz, 1GB RAM, 100G... (d6000z) PC Notebook Problem SCREEN WONT TURN ON LED LIGHTS OF POWER BUTTON...


The dv6000 series was commonly affected by the video card heating up and reseating itself. This was usually a soldering issue. You have a few options, You can either replace the motherboard, or have the motherboard reflowed. Unfortunately the video card itself is not detachable or individually replaceable.

I personally would recommend the second option as purchasing another dv6000 board will likely end you up in the same situation a year or 2 later.

A repair / reflow services on ebay
Dv6000 Repair

This repair tech only does amd processor models, Not intel.

Hope this helps.

This is the intensity of heat the processor and the inability of the cooling fan can cause overheating in this failure in part card that beats the screen and my advice to you, but you run the machine a lot that can solve this problem

My notebook overheats!!!!!


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.

My amd processor


I wouldnt be too concerned about the "heat" especially since it doesnt get 'hotter'.

Drivers are software programs that make your computers parts work properly with Windows (or any other OS as appropriate)

Goto hp's website and get the drivers ..

It could just be the battery, they all fluctuate .. the only way to know is get another battery or accept the battery life time and enjoy your 'puter.

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.

Compare which is better hpDV900 amd -HPDV2000 intel


IF THE CONFIGURATION STATED BY YOU IS CORRECT THEN I WOULD SURELY GO FOR DV2000 BEACUSE OF HIGHER MEMORY(3 GB) AND AN INTEL PROCESSOR BECAUSE THE AMD PROCESSOR OF DV 9000 WILL GET SO HEATED AFTER ABOUT AN HOURS USE THAT YOU WONT BE ABLE TO KEEP IT ON YOUR LAP ... HOWEVER I STILL DOUBT THE CONFIGURATION .. CAUSE ACCORDING TO ME THE CONFIG OF DV2000 IS INTEL CORE 2 DUO T5500 1.66GHZ 1GB RAM AND 100GB HDD WHICH IS NOT AT ALL PREFERABLE BY ME
