Humming noise on HP Pavilion dv9000

I just purchased this labtop last week. It is great except for the humming that is coming from the keyboard area. Any suggestions? Should I return and get a new one? I don't think I can live with the buzzing/humming for long. Thanks

    It is not the sound card because I have tried to mute and it stays humming. It is louder on the bottom of the computer when I lift it up to hear underneath it. It is not a grinding noise, just a constant buzz that is located in the center of the key board. Thanks for your help, it is helpful.

    Good to know that I am not alone, but I am not comforted by the fact that it seems to be a built-in problem- that blows. Have you found anything that would fix it or make it better?? Thanks

    I have had this dv9000 since August 2007 and the other day the fan began emitting an annoying humming noise. The fan shouldn't even run all the time should it? Well it appears to be and it constantly makes that noise. Any help?

    Same whirring noise above the keybord on my Paviliondv7-1285dx. Just talked to tech support in India, and they had me take out the hard drive, the dvd player and blow into each, even though I told them the problem came from above the keyboard on the opposite side of each of those. Please, somebody help. The whir is so noisy I have been banned from the room.

I have a dv6000 and its makes a insect tlike noise. i returned it and  got another one but that one also made the same noise. so i contacted hp and they told me that the sound is coming from the USB ports, i thought wierd but here is the solution to your problem. go to computer managment (start>right click my computer> manage), click on device manager, select the universal serial bus contollers ( there should be a few roots files that open up), right click a usb root hub and select properties, click the power managment tab, and uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". do this for every USB root hub that you have, and the problem should go away. FYI these instructions are for windows XP.

Humming fan!......hp dv9000 = poor quality control in the manufacturing process.
I opened my computer up and took a look. What did I find? Where do I start?
On the underside of the keyboard I found 2 human hairs sealed under a solid strip of clear tape. But thats not all folks! My fan was grinding. And why was it grinding you may ask? I will tell you. A white label "Not" centered on the top of the fan blades. Crooked enough to throw it out of alignment.Took the darn thing off. Problem solved!
I also found the sticky side of adhesive tape used to hold down wires with makes a great lint trap. Simple things that can truley harm your computer.

After hours of fooling the laptop, I finally figured out the cause of the humming. It was a screw inside the battery housing,closes to the fan.apparently it was to tight.once i losen or removed the humming noise went away.Hope this helps some of you.

    I just bought a dv4-3029TX and slightly loosened some of the screws around the fan and hey presto the humming is gone! Thank you so much, I was so worried for a second after just starting it up for the first time :)

AFTER READING THIS FORUM I CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT MOST OF THESE PEOPLE ARE FUCKIN RETARDS. ITS THE FAN! ITS A POWERFUL ENTERTAINMENT LAPTOP THAT GETS HOT. IT NEEDS A NOISY FAN TO COOL DOWN. BUY A SONY, PANASONIC, TOSHIBA, PACKARD BELL OR A COMPAQ WITH THIS POWER AND YOU'LL HAVE THE EXACT SAME NOISE! YOU ******* TARDS!

I had a problem with a VERY loud noise coming from the fan area of my HP Pavilion dv9000 laptop after having it for over 3 years. It was really irritating me, I then looked at the web for similar problems and tried Kevjays solution (solution 13), my computer is now the quietest it has been since i first owned it. NICE ONE Kevjay :-)

Sounds like theres something blocking the cpu fan or the fan is dieing. if you good with taking apart laptops then take it apart and change the cpu fan if not take it in to get it repair

Posted on Dec 05, 2008

Its not a fan, I had the same thing but its actually the processor, It takes to much juice. I upgraded to vista and the noise went away. i did find a piece of software that regulated the power to cpu and the stopped the noise as well but I cant remember what it was called.

Posted on Oct 27, 2008

If you get a faint clicking noise that happens even when the laptop is asleep, then its this really strange virus from the smitfraud family. Get rid of it and the clicking should stop.
As for the grinding noise, I have it too, and it always is worst after the laptop has been on about five hours, so its definitely got something to do with over-heating.

Posted on May 02, 2008

I have a buzzing sound too. It goes away when you turn the screen brightness up to full.

I had the same 'fan noise' problem and I tried all the solutions from the internet forums but none worked. After I realized that there thousands of people that had the same problem, I sent my pc back to HP and mentioned to that i will sue them using the 'lemon' law and they replaced my motherboard. It's now working perfectly and quietly.

SEND your notebook back if its under warranty. I not, buy the extended warranty and send it afterwards.

It would help to narrow down specifically where the noise is coming from. imo, there is three possible noise sources, fan, hard drive, and sound card. Is it the sound card? mute the volume, see if it stops. Is is a constant hum? the CPU fan would possibly only make a noise once the system heats up, and then not usually hum so much as it is a grinding noise. The hard drive could potentially make the humming noise, since it is easily removed from the bottom side, seems the humming would be louder on the bottom. Here is link to HP support page, download the Maintenance and Service Guide: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3224049&lang=en&

Hum first,,, anytime you have 2 devices with sound running to a cable or ant equipted TV you will get a hum as they are grounded off curcuit. HumEliminator (radio shack). You didn't tell us if your PC had been enabled in control panel for either device. I have had no luck using the rear aduio output on any computer. Front headphone jack on PC does not need enabled and will work better for this. Unless you use a USC codet interface which is better yet for CD quality in sound. Also make sure the Aux inout is enabled on TV as well. Direct Input would be the same. Lastly,,you are 100% positive the backside is input and not actually out put or gaming inputs.

I have a DV6-1245DX entertainment notebook pc. This is one week old. i get a humming/ buzzing sound when i play CD's. Is this normal ?


It is not normal.
I suggest you return it to the place where you purchased it as it would still be under warranty.
If you try and fix it you will most likely void your warranty.

When you get a chance, please post the whole model number of your Maytag dishwasher here.
Because you are still getting clean dishes, you probably have debris (a bone or fruit pit) that has gotten down to the pump/impeller or the chopper area.
Remove the lower spray arm, remove the filter/sump assembly and clean everything out. With a flash light, inspect the whole sump area for debris. I bet you will find stuff there (beware of broken glass!) and when you re-assemble, the noise will ne normal.
Good Luck! Please post back what you find, OK?

Computer beeps when first turning on


If your computer is still under warranty, the company should replace them. If not, you can buy them really cheap.

Or you could just return the computer. This is what I would do, because it might not be the mouse/keyboard that is causing this. It could be that you just have a bad motherboard.

Unplug the the dsl & any other device except the keyboard & mouse. Double check the video cable at both ends monitor & PC. Boot up system. If the system starts shut down & connect 1 device.
