Question about HP (344872-001) Laptop Cooler, Cooling Fan

Hp pavillion dv6000 laptop fan not running

I cleaned the dust and cat hair out of my fan and now it does not turn. I used canned air to blow the dust out, and tweezers to grab the visible fuzz and hair. The laptop is about 13 months old and no longer under warranty. I have not had any other issues with it, and has not overheated and shut itself down yet without the fan running, but I also haven't tried to make it do anything strenuous like play Half Life 2 or Guild Wars.

What is the best way to fix it? Can I fix it myself? Will it be expensive to fix? Am I at risk of burning out my video card or mother board? ...Did I kill it?

Hey guys, i just had the exact same problem with my fan. What i did to fix it, was that opened it up, got to the fan and simply gave it a couple of swirls, and after not running for half a year, the fan suddenly worked again. When i had it opened up i simply used a vacuum cleaner to, to get the dust from within the laptop. I used this video to open the laptop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbSSnAZYc0I&feature=related.. I have no experience doing this sort of thing, but it is easily done, just takes a mere 30 min. Regards Nils, Denmark

    if you get a continious beeps or long beeps after turn on and the computer dont start up just display the press esc and setup message., then replace the fan. even if you get it to work it will only last for a short while then you will be back to square one.

When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Fan comes on frequently on hp computer. dust etc


If this is a desktop computer, did you clean out all the dust inside the computer? You can buy cans of compressed air at places like Staples. Make sure you blow the dust out of the power supply and cpu heat sink.

My sony laptop computer has big noise when the fan start.


Hi there,

It is normal for the computer to do this. When an application you are running makes greater use of the CPU, memory, video card, and disk drives, power consumption increases, and the fan either kicks up in speed or turns on. If the sound is annoying, you may be able to reduce the fan cycles by cleaning the dust out of the computer case.

Get a can or two of Dust-Air or a similar product.

Open the case of your computer by removing the screws on the back. Some computer cases have easy-open latches, so you may not need tools. Use a vacuum cleaner to get the bigger dust bunnies out of the case, then use the Dust-air to blow out all of the nooks and crannies. Make sure to blow out the heat sink for the CPU; the vanes tend to clog with dust. Blow off the vanes of all the cooling fans, too. There will be one on the CPU, and probably a few others, e.g., most video cards have their own fans and heat sinks now.

Replacing the case fan with a quieter model, such as a Vantec, can also help:

Computer makers build systems with the cheapest parts they can get their hands on, and if you're handy, it's worthwhile upgrading.

My laptop fan constantly runs help!


First, I recommend cleaning all the dust out of the cooling vents. Use an old toothbrush to brush the dust away from the vent holes and blow air through the vents using one of those compressed air cans made for cleaning keyboards. One time I worked on a Sony laptop that I had to take apart to get all the dust cleaned out of the air vent.

The second thing I recommend is to download a piece of free software called FanSpeed. Here's a link http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/SpeedFan.shtml
I'll let you read the description for yourself, but in short it allows you to monitor the temperature inside your computer and to adjust how the fans react to this temperature.

I have an hp pavillion 1110n and the cooling fans very seldom ever stop, even after cleaning all dust and the room temp. is normal.


this is a desktop computer yeah? if so the fans should never stop if they do you have a problem, the fans should only come on and off in a laptop

(1) How do I turn off the computer fan from surging?


As far as the fan issue goes, especially if it's a laptop, blow out the fan exhaust area. Use compressed air to blow out the ventilation area in the opposite direction that air flows through it normally. You'll be amazed how much dust comes out. You can try one of those crappy over-priced ridiculously low pressure canned air deals but to really get it clean, find someone with an air compressor. A mechanic friend or someone in construction that uses an air nailer maybe? If it's a desktop, try blowing out the processor heat sink preferably with the fan removed. Be careful, start at lower pressure and slowly work your way up. Also, if you take the fan off of the heat sink, be careful not to knock the heat sink off of the processor or you will need to clean both surfaces (heat sink and processor), reapply a thin layer of heat sink grease, and reinstall the heat sink and fan assembly. I'll leave the second half of you question open incase both issues are one-in-the-same.

Laptop overheats way too fast...


What is the model number of your machine? Some have design flaws that make them run hot. Also dust is a great insulator. I would take the machine into a repair shop or get a can of compressed air and blow out any fan areas. A laptop cooling pad can be a good idea as well especially if you notice that the machine overheats while sitting on a desk. The noise of the fan is probalay due to the dust coating the heatsync. The fan has to run much faster to move more air to cool the system. Blowing out or having the heatsync cleaned is a good idea here!
