With the laptop running, observe where the Air Intake Duct is at. Make sure this duct has plenty of room around it, to bring air in.
Typically this duct is located on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes it's up on the side next to the Exhaust Duct.

Either location brings this duct in a perfect(?) spot to bring in all kinds of foreign debris. Dirt/Dust/Food Particles/Lint, and so on.
Also makes it so it's easily blocked by the users clothes if they sit it on their lap, or blocked by bed, coverings, the couch, or carpet floor.

The opening you see narrows down into a Cooling Tube, the width and height of your index finger. This makes a funnel effect for the foreign debris.
Since the main objective of the Cooling Fan, Cooling Tube, and Heatsink, is to keep the processor cool, clogging these cooling components can lead to a detrimental effect in a hurry!

Solution? I suggest cleaning out the Air Intake Duct, (Do Not blow air into the Exhaust Duct!), with a can of compressed air for computers. These cans of air are readily available in a lot of places. (Office supply stores, computer stores, Walmart, and so on)

Remove the AC adapter, (Charger), and battery before you begin.

After spot cleaning mantle clock with German movement (circa 1960), the clock chimes properly on the hour but does not chime on the half hour.

I am hoping that you oiled it also? One trick I have found is to gently lift the hammers and release, sometimes the hammers will release and strike the chimes/gong. Do this 4-5 times and hopefully it will get it chiming for you again.

Why HP-p 077tx Laptop Working Slow and Fan RPM Is Maximum?

Is your HP-p 077tx laptop running slowly and making a lot of noise? If so, then it could be overheating.The electrical components in the PC make heat, and fans in the system help move the air to keep the modules from getting too warm. Extra heat will be the reason for fans to run continually, damage modules, and slow the CPU's speed.All of these failures with higher heat and power will cause the program to function slower than normal. If the Fan RPM is extreme all the time, it can be the first hint that your laptop isn't working efficiently. To run your system as cool and effectively as possible, either call at the HP technical support phone number or follow up one or more of the corrective actions given below.

Update your HP laptop BIOS

While computers are released, HP also distributes updated BIOS to manage CPU power loads, fans, and other modules. Before updating the BIOS, make sure that what BIOS version is currently installed on your system. If it's outdated, then update it to the new version available on the HP's official website. For complete information to find new BIOS version and know the instructions for updating your laptop BIOS, consult with the HP technicians to get the necessary help.

Improve the laptop efficiency to reduce heat

If you have various applications running on your system, it functions harder and creates more heat.Decrease the heat amount by improving the laptop efficiency. Here's how to do:

    ·Stop your application from initiating while the system is started.
    ·Close the additional programs if you're not using them.
    ·Disconnect the Internet if you're not surfing the web.
    ·If your laptop gets too hot while playing games, then try to play the game at a lower resolution and with reduced graphics settings.
    Identify corrupt processes using Windows Task Manager

    The regular CPU load can be the reason of heat buildup in the computing device, forcing the fan to work regularly to keep the system at functioning temperatures. Sometimes, corrupt program or malware can cause the heat buildup. A corrupt program can consume CPU time wherever between 1% and 100%. Follow the steps to find corrupt processes that might be making CPU slower.

      1.Save your work and end up all open applications.
      2.Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete keys all at once. Click the 'Task Manager' to reveal the Windows Task Manager window.
      3.Choose the 'Processes' tab, and to specify the processes by CPU load, and then click the CPU column header.
      4.Navigate the list of suspect processes.
      To identify more details about a process, browse the Internet to find the procedure name that shows in the Windows Task Manager. You can also avail tech support for HP laptop and get the suggestions for solving the issues.

      Keep your Laptop air vents clear and clean

      When heat builds up due to the regular use of the system, the fan spins faster to eliminate the excess warm and thus make the noise. HP laptop has vents in the bottom and sides to eradicate heat, letting air flow via the case. If the vents become blocked, the fan can't cool the components correctly. So, clean the dust if you find it out and inside the vents. While using your laptop, put it on a hard, smooth surface to keep the vent areas unblocked.
      Choose power save settings

      Try to choose the power save settings to shut your laptop off while it's not in use. Many operating systems let you change the power settings to turn off the screen while you're not regularly using your system. If you often leave your laptop in between your work, changing the power settings to power off your monitor while it's not being used can let your laptop functioning at a cooler temperature.

MY HP WONT START UP....... after pressing start button, the LED lit up and then nothing happens...I tried all the possilbe ways available on the internet........nothing worked...Can't get inot its Bois,...

Ok, this doesn't work on every HP, nut it does for alot of them.

1: remove power cord and battery, so that there is no electricity to the laptop

2: hold power button for 16-20 seconds...this is a master reset mode for the bios...sometimes HP bios freezes up

3: replace battery, then power cord in that order before attempting to boot up

4: Try to reboot your system. Like I said, this doesn't work for every HP, but it does work on alot of them.

This is because HP system boards sometimes freeze, and the procedure I am telling you about is the "unfreeze system"

When i start it doesn't start sometimes. sometimes it starts but after a few secs a noise comes and system switches off

There's a similar problem with the DV6000 that is caused by the built in graphics card overheating and telling the computer bios to turn it off and stop it overheating the whole motherboard. unfortunately once this has happened the system can stop the laptop booting even from cold. I've temporarily fixed a couple of them by removing the CMOS battery for 24 hours and puttin a shim between the graphics card and the heat sink. In the end you're probably need a new motherboard though

The laptop suddenly stops working . Sometimes after one hour, sometimes after 4 hours. Like you shut down the TV. What is wrong?

THis is called hanging. Most common cause is your display driver. Try re-installing the display driver and see if that fixes it.

How do i get windows 7 to install from disc? the laptop loads half the files then shuts down

make your the laptop is using mains power and not battery, and also make sure its not overheating (make sure hot air is able to flow out of the air vents in your laptop nice and strong) i say this as sometimes dust collects inside the vents and stops air flowinf very well and helps to overheat the system, then by the time your half way into an install its gotten hot enough to power-down to protect your hardware.
to try and remove dust, purchased a can of compressed air form a computer shop and blow it down the air vents of your laptop to clear any dust. Just make sure your laptop has been off for about a half hour to make sure its cool inside, because compressed air is very cold and if the laptop is still hot it will cause a sudden change in temperature and crack your motherboard.
After you do this and still have the same error, then the problem might be the disc you are using, even brand new just opened discs can have errors from time to time, all part of that mass-production process that is never 100% flawless.
Hope this helps :-)
