Update BIOS for hp pavillion dv2000 running vista

My fan makes a whirling sound ALL the time.. on-off-on-off... it were just constantly on, i'd be able to work, but as it is...arg.
so - updating my bios has been suggested, but i have no idea what that means (though i see people refer to it online) if i can get around my computer pretty decently (though vista is MUCH different than XP..) is it something i could do??

    i understand what you're saying, but my laptop is not even getting warm... this is what leads me to believe that it may be a hardware issue. also, the fan starts as soon as i turn on my computer (before opening any programs - i've also reduced my start up programs as much as possible).
    thanks for your suggestion but i think i'm going to look into figuring out how to update the BIOS. any ideas??

Not sure if this is a defect. My "Dell" laptop does the same depending on what I'm doing. As the proccesor works harder, it heats up and requires the fan to cool down the heat sink. If you're just working in a word program or on the internet this shouldn't be happing. However if you're running multiple programs at the same time or playing a game in the back ground this is why this is happening. I would suggest a laptop cooler. This will not stop the problem you're having but it's really a goood idea to keep your laptop cool as possible. It builds up a lot of heat.

    Updating the bios is a little complicated. You may have to make some changes in the bios system settings before updating. Best advise is to search hp to see if there is an update first. Then there should be directions on how to update it. I've never updated any bios on any of my computers. I've owned about 5.

Hi im running windows vista home premium, and ive noticed my fan has been running all the time for months now and it gets really hot, I also noticed that my processor runs between 60 & 100% now too. im...


With all the stuff running in the background of Vista, and Norton, you could very well be maxing out the computer. Memory, processor or both. I have a laptop, and I close down the HP total care advisor, and any periphial programs running that I am not going to use. like backup programs and printer standby stuff. Norton does use a lot of resources especially on updating an d processing the updates. I usually let my PC do it's thing until the HD activity light quiets down before I try to use it.

Restart your laptop, and immediately press DELETE to enter BIOS setup. Select "Load BIOS Defaults". Navigate through the menus;
you should see "auto-detect disk-drive". Run that utility.
Save the updated BIOS settings, and exit from BIOS-setup.

If all else fails, take the computer to a qualified technician.
It's probably just a 10-minute "fix" for an expert.

I m using ur model HP PAVILLION DV2000


Sounds like you have a driver issue.

Start up in safe mode (press the F8 button about once per second after you power on), and select safe mode with networking.

When you get into windows, use windows update to download all updates for both software and hardware (update will till you that there are optional updates available, download these as well),

Hopefully when all that has completed you should be able to run your computer as normal. If not there may be a problem with the memory installed on the laptop.
