Switch on your computer and go to bios and check if your system restarts.

Robert, I recommend you to open the chassis cover and check if there is any obstruction of any air vent. Meanwhile, if you can hear a loud fan spinning of the CPU heatsink, you might have to replace the thermal paste, the instruction http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/134.

If the problem still persist, don forget to come back here. I will try my best to help you.

HP Pavilion a1230n had bad power supply I changed it out for a better one of the same make and model. Now when it turns on I can hear the hard drive spinning and the fans running but it beeps every few...


If the beeping is coming from the power supply, that typically means that you are pulling too much wattage. I would recommend trying a higher wattage power supply. The video card is one of the lowest things on the computer's list of things to keep running at all costs, because even if your video card flickers off, you won't lose data. Before getting another new power supply though, I would ensure that your video cables are properly plugged into your video card and your monitor. To be sure that they are snug simply screw them in so that they don't wiggle at all when you pull on them.

1. Check if fan is spinning. If not, replace with new one or check cables.
2. Check if there are no swapped fan connectors when reconnecting mb cables.
3. Check BIOS update on HP website. Choose your OS here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3339287&
4. Check for a BIOS setting for disabling the fan monitoring.
5. Install a monitoring app which reports fan speeds and temps. See http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
6. Check if CPU fan works.

G60-120US high temp problem


Laptop's temp should NEVER be higher than 60-70 C. Otherwise, windows or the CPU will shut it down (my laptop never goes over 75 C, even when running games for a short time)
A few tips:
1) Laptops are a really bad choice for games. They are not designed for that and they will overheat, some of them a lot, depending on the manufacturer.
2) Check if you BIOS has an option to turn "automatic fan control" OFF. This will keep the fan running at HIGH all the time, helping somewhat with the heat (most laptops do not have this control in the BIOS)
3) Clean up the fan. Turn the laptop off, disconenct the AC charger, remove the bottom cover and blow compressed air from a compressed air can. Be sure to remove all the dust and lint. Check that the fan moves easily. Replace the cover, plug the AC charger on and try again.
4) REMOVE SPEED FAN and install CPUID's Hardware Monitor from here:
http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php
It's much better and it gives you the temps of CPU, HD and video card and also speed of fan(s)

HP pavilion DV6700nr laptop looses power


If it is (and it does sound like) a heat problem, the first thing do to would be to make sure the vents are clean and the fan and heatsink are free of dust buildup.

Here is a page from HP to assist you in doing so:

Reducing heat in notebooks

If you go into the BIOS setup, many have an option to monitor the CPU temp. Watch it and see what temp your computer shuts down.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya.

Computer shuts down


Almost certainly an overheating problem. Speed Fan will provide a temperature monitoring solution if you don't have one built-in: http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php This program will also give you S.M.A.R.T. info. Open the case and look for dust bunnies, especially in the heat sink and fan areas.
