Question about HP Pavilion dv9720us Notebook
I bought the above laptop a year and a half ago. I have two questions, your advice will be appreciated.
1. The fan is giving a rattle off and on. Could this be a cleaning issue or does the fan need replacement. If the latter, is it reliable to get this done at the local pc service joint ?
2. This comes with an NVIDIA GeForce 7150M graphics card. I subsequently realized (while using flight simulator) that this is not the best card, so I would like to upgrade. Is this possible at all (i.e., is the present card :hard-wired" to the rest of the laptop. If so, again, can this be done at the local PC joint ?
The graphics can not be upgraded on this laptop. You can boost the capabilities by giving it more memory in the bios and running the latest nvidia drivers.
The fan is something you should not ignore. Get it replaced if it has any noise that isn't normal. You can not fix these fans with cleaning. Vibration is usually a bad barring or melted barring mount. Failure to fix it will permanently destroy the laptop and kill the lithium battery pack.
