    thanks for you quick reply
    I have got the keybord off but I seem to be stuck
    ... its like a puzzle.

    I take pictures so I know where everything goes.
    thanks for the advice of lubrication .. will try that too
    but even with that fan blowing the computer shuts itself down after 2 hrs of full throttle activity so I imagine there is something not cooling that should .. or is it maybe the thermostat? or the cpu that is about to give up forever? :S

For cleaning the clogged cooler simply try to blow from outside-in with some air canister.
General instructions:
Big work if you are unfamiliar.
Remove the battery, all little covers and all the screws from underside, if the underside cower can not be removed, then maybe you must remove the motherboard. Try to remove the keyboard, keypad and everything from upper side until reach fan... Do not use brute force.
Remember the position of long screws, if any.Also remember the route of the cables.Mark the position of inner screws on board with some red marker, this helps a lot.
Use electrostatic protection (recommended).
If you remove any cooler, after cleaning you must use thermal conducting paste.
After removing the fan, if no other , try lubricating the fan rod (under the fan label) with a little thermally resistant grease.
God work !!!

    If CPU overheats, it protect itself by turning the PC off.
    Try blowing NOT from the fan side, but from opposite side.
    Put always the PC on hard surface, es on the table, not on the pillow, so you keep the air vents open....
    It is only a cooling problem...
    Maybe tomorrow i can see some PC like yours for better description what you should do..
    Best regards - Altini

Hp 6830s is to nois. Fan is tooloude


If the fan making a smooth spin, but the noise is too loud, then it means the fan is trying to dissipate the heat. Probably the air inlet and or the air outlet (also the fan itself) is dirty (or clogged) and you need to clean it up using a canned air.
You may need to open the case/body if the dust become a dust ball (and you need a tweezer and qtip to pickup the dust ball and clean up the fan blades).

How do I open up my HP Pavillion zd800 case. I want to clean out the dust.


You don't need to open it up!

Turn the computer off.
Remove the battery.
Buy a can of compressed air, and give your computer a "blow-job" through every vent that you can find.

Follow the instructions on the can -- keep the can "vertical" while using it.

HP Pavillion zd8000 won't power up


Try attaching a normal VGA desktop monitor to it. There should be a plug either on the sides or the back of the laptop. A blue one. That way you'll be sure.
