Question about Computer System Cooling
I have a problem with HP dv1000 cooling fan. The Fan never turns on even if the laptop is hotter. How to troubleshoot the problem and fix it?
Thanks in advance for the help.
It is either clogged with dust or not functioning.
Here is the repair manual . You can probably fix it your self.
It is on page 162.

Tom19511's solution worked like a charm. I have a DV1000, about 3 years old, and it was overheating and then shutting off. I used the service manual on this site to take apart the computer, all the way to taking the heatsink and fan off the computer. There was a huge dustball inside the heatsink that I vacuumed out. Obviously, it was constricting the airflow and overheating the computer. Now it works fine. Taking apart the computer was not hard; the trickiest part is taking all the screws out and remembering where they go afterwards.

If fan replace/cleaning doesn't work then do the following..
Replace hard-drive. Yes, do it and this time do not put the cover on it. Take 2 screws out from the plastic cover and screw hd without it. You have a damaged hd running.
This should resolve the problem. If not then you may have to change the battery as well.
(How in hell hp designed the hd compartment with no vents is unthinkable.)

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps
