Problem 1: Loss of either the power supply fan or the CPU fan can create that problem.

Problem 2: Windows XP may not have the SATA driver on the setup disc for your machine thus the install doesn't "see" a drive. There is additional info at this link (at the HP website) about how you can integrate the drivers into your XP install.

You shouldn't need to load Vista again but most likely you could use a dual boot for your machine if you wanted to. For the fan issue you may want to place it into service if you aren't comfortable taking apart a laptop for checking or replacing a fan. Generally the parts can be sourced online for your machine (and usually cheaper than through a service facility) but it comes down to comfortability with the replacement procedure when deciding to put it into service.

Auto shutdown


I think you have to check if the machine is overheating. It could be the fan is not running properly or not running at all thats why the machine is shutting down. Also it could be the memory or hard drive thats causing the problem.

My HP Pavilion dv4 Notebook drops its FPS drastically when hot

Hello,if this is the first time that happens its OK but if every time you play or you stressed the CPU shutdowns or restarts the you should take it to a repair shop.You can download a program to monitor the temperatures to see if its a CPU or graphic cards overheating.As i can see your graphic card is low-mid range and on-board so don't stress it, putting high resolutions or high details and make it overheating and stress more your CPU.

Hp pavilion dv4-1220us overheating then shutsdown

Sounds like you need to take it in for repairs, clean outs and/or replacements.

This product is known for it's heating issue and power consumption. Maybe the fan is starting to wear out and it's affecting the rest of the system. I would suggest checking the warranty on the system, if it is no longer valid, then I would look for a local tech in the newspaper.

Motherboard Product no. needed

HP uses a proprietary motherboard. The only way you'll find the specifics is on your build sheet from HP or by contacting their tech/customer support department. Sorry I can't be of further help. Good luck.

hi I will try to help you
your overheat problem may be dirt and dust inside,or the fan may have should feel air moving out through the far as it saying no hard disk,your harddrive is bad,or your motherboard isnt recognizing it.installing windows wont help.there has to be a drive present to install to.
I would check on the warranty.if it dosnt have warranty and you have some knowledge of the working could take your laptop apart and clean it.the dust can stop airflow causing overheat.overheating may be causing your hardrive not to show up.have seen that before.cleaned it and it guarentee though.
hope this helps, 357reaper.
