Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
Tech support is on the phone, they want us to pay for the repair.
Not sure on the dv9000z but on many other laptops i have noticed that temperatures get very high inside .. if it gets hot enough then something will fail .. often the video chip . sometimes others .. there seems to be two problems .. first when you use your laptop on your lap (or worse yet on a bed or pillow) then the air intakes can be blocked .. it will feel hot when you are using it .. second and i cant for the life of me figure why this one is still a problem .. the pads that hold the laptop off of the table (so that the air intakes are not blocked) are so short that the intake fan does what they call an "airfoil stall" .. when the suction pressure gets to a certain point then the fan stalls (quits moving air or greatly diminished air flow) its just spinning it wheels without doing much .. .. of course the temperature goes way up .. on many laptops i have found a dramatic improvment in cooling just by putting on "stick on" felt pads that raise the laptop up just a little more .. high enough off the table top to allow the fan to do it job .. often you can feel a big difference in exhaust air temprature .. another way that really shouldnt be necessary but works .. is to mount the laptop on a laptop cooler .. thats a flat plate containing a fan or two that keeps the computer much cooler .. anymore when i see a laptop that has a history of similar failures, i suspect high heat as the cause .. unfortunatly it doesnt matter what fails .. almost everything is mounted on the mother board and no matter what the trouble is . its the mother board that has to be replaced .. if you check on the internet to see if many others are having the same trouble then you might want to insist on a free repair .. that has worked a few times sometimes not ..i like doing business with the companies that cooperate ..

If it is under warranty or extended cover then it is free so contact your original supplier
If it is out of warranty and you have not taken out cover you are stuffed
