Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
Progressively has gotten quicker to shut down has done this a couple times over last months. Then a couple days apart then after 30 mins of use en 5 mins now won't even make it thru startup. Laptop is elevated from table as I know they are notorious for overheating. I hear fan running.
Try the Memory mods, the CMOS battery. You have cleaned the fan and vents, right? May be a component failure, hard to say on a older machine. Take a look at HP support: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SupportTaskIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=434660&taskId=110

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.

As for the overheating cause, I can only say if you've ever added on hardware to it maybe the current fan is inadequate for the job. As a solution I would see about getting an upgraded, fan. Or buy a cooling stand, they plug into a USB and your laptop sits on top of it. Hope this helps.

There is a Limited Enhancement Program that includes this model. If you are in the US call 1-800-474-6836. If you are outside US check the HP.com website and search for the Limited warranty enhancement Program.
This is normally a video chipset issue that is embedded in your MB. If your notebook is part of the program, hp will shoulder the repair cost for the MB replacement.
Please vote, Thanks!

The problem is a damage to the MB by excessive heat produced by Nvidia GPU. The only way to fix this permanently is to take out the MB and reflow the GPU with heat. You can find a video on youtube how to do it. You must take out the piece of gel between GPU and cooling unit and replace it with copper bar or penny made prior 1983 - still made out of copper. Also clean the fan. Use heat transfer paste like arctic cool - not a glue, on both sides of the penny. Install win7. Win7 does not use the coprocessor and will help to ran the notebook cooler. Install speedFan 4.40 - free utility to see what the temp is of your GPU and CPU. If you did good job it will stay around 55C. If your HP notebook is still running check the temp. If the GPU is running 80C or more it will melt the connections on the MB and quit working sooner or later.

Be sure that the laptop is plugged in to the power supply before you start! Are you restoring from an image in the machine or a CD or DVD disk?
Either way this takes quite a while and most manufactures warn you that the machine will reboot a few times (I have seen some take 5 reboots) to complete the task, so be patient.
The last part of your question concerns me. If you power cycled the computer (turned it off then on) half way through the process it could be hard crashed. If you have the CD or DVD dish this would not be a big problem but if you are restoring from an image this could be bad. Let us know.
