Question about HP Pavilion DV6500T Notebook
I bought the laptop in september/october 2007, and now, in the last few months, the fan has began to make a loud noise.
When this happened on my old laptop, I opened it up and cleaned the fan. The problem now is that I don't know how to open it up on this PC!
Why is the fan working? And how do I open up so I can clean the fan?
HP deliberately design their laptops to breakdown just after the warranty ... my HP-authorized repair shop told me that there is no way to clean everywhere inside the unit, without complex, nearly complete dismantling.
But I bought another Pavilion! But I learnt by smashing apart my first Pavvy. There is only one cooling fan.
Remove the battery. Put a narrow plastic stick thru the intake slot, to stop the fan spinning. Then use a hair dryer, without heat, to push air into every air hole you can find. Repeat with a low-power vacuum cleaner.
After 4 years, sell it, smash it or get rid of it.

If at all possible " do not try and clean the fan yourself " you will kill the m/board - take it to an auth Hp serice agent and get a new CPU heatsink assy & fan unit fitted. I work on Hp units all the time and I am always very carefull of the electrostatic conditions. Try and do it yourself and it will prove expensive. If you have warranty log a service call for a replacement heatsink
