Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I have a HP pavilion DV6700nr laptop. It boots fine and runs for up to 45mins but it will all of the sudden shut off. When I tr to immediatley reboot it the lights light up and you can hear the drive start to spin and before it even gets to the bios screen it loses all power. But if I wait 10-15 mins it will start up fine again. The computer does not seem to be very hot but the fan seems to constantly run on high. I thought this might sound like an overheating issue. I dloaded a program and it says my GPU temp is 75C and my CPU is 78C. I dont know what the temp should be but I think this is kind of high? Any thought what could be causing this or my problem?
If it is (and it does sound like) a heat problem, the first thing do to would be to make sure the vents are clean and the fan and heatsink are free of dust buildup.
Here is a page from HP to assist you in doing so:
Reducing heat in notebooks
If you go into the BIOS setup, many have an option to monitor the CPU temp. Watch it and see what temp your computer shuts down.
Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya.
