Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Lately my HP Pavilion dv9000 gets really hot really fast. The fan kicks on (& it's SO loud) but it keeps getting hotter. I tried the X Pad thing that elevates the laptop & (they claim) is made of a cooling material & the laptop got so hot it melted the glue that holds the rubber grippers on the laptop & the X pad! I try to prop the laptop on top of something to let as much of it be exposed to the air as possible but even the keyboard gets hot! I think this problem is too serious even for a laptop stand with a built in cooling fan. Did anyone have this problem? How did you fix it? I'm too afraid to use it (I'm typing this right now on my iPhone!)!

My HP Pavilion dv6's fan seems to run in overdrive constntly and the computer still overheats. Please help

Hi lukergrt, There are a few things you can try. First, see if your computer and fans are really dusty - dusty computers get hot fast. Clean out the fans with compressed air or a dust buster. If you're comfortable opening up laptops, you can clean even more dust out from inside (disclaimer: ONLY do this if you're experienced with laptops, otherwise a cleaning from the outside is fine). If you're still having issues after that, look into a fan pad for under your laptop. Something like this is fairly effective at keeping your laptop cool. - Good luck! Alex

It sounds like the cooling fan inside the laptop may have failed. Even with a cooling pad the airflow inside the laptop would not be sufficent to keep it cool. It would to be replace by a local computer shop.

My dv9000 locks up after it gets hot. What can I do?

A laptop locks up or shuts down when it get very hot. The CPU shuts down (thermal overload) when it overheats and will not boot up until it has cooled down. If this problem is not fixed, eventually the CPU will fail.
This problem could be caused be a faulty CPU fan and/or the CPU and heat sink assemble is clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if the fan blade spins freely (it may have a seized bearing), if not replace the fan. If the fan and heatsink is clogged with dust, clean and remove the dust.
If additional cooling is required and there are ventilation grills on the bottom of the laptop, then purchase a laptop cooling pad. Place the laptop on the cooling pad, these pads have fans that direct air into the grills at the bottom of the laptop.

My computer is becoming really hot and noisy. After turning on the computer, everything is good (no noise). Once around 15 minutes passes by or I open up a lot of programs together, my computer starts...

Sounds like the fan is wearing out, as it heats up the fan needs to spin faster and if the bearings are wearing out it will start getting louder and it will also get hotter because the fan cannot keep up the heat being produced. You can replace the fan, most computer shops will carry replacements, also get a can of compressed air and give the inside of the computer a good cleaning. This will help keep things cooler as well. Also make sure that the air vents on the outside of the case are clear as well.

My HP pavilion dv9000 keeps crashing when I am on the internet and if I type too fast the curser stops and just keeps flashing then the laptop just crashes. I thought my laptop was getting too hot so I...

Your Laptop Is Overheating... First thing you need to do is go to the HP website/Drivers and Support... and Download/Install The Newest Available BIOS download.. You need this because in it is a Fan Controller Fix.. It Will Speed Up The Fan..

Next .. You Need To Clean The Fan/Heatsink Assembly..
This means complete disassembly of all parts down to the motherboard, The Fans Blades Need To Be Cleaned and the Heatsink Cooling Fins Need To Be Cleaned and free of dust/debris....

You can not simply use a can of compressed air and blow it into the general area of the fan from the underside of the case... You wil make things worse...

If same symptoms still occur, You will need a Video Chip/GPU Reflow of the motherboard.

Laptop keeps cutting off seems to get hot fast

The DV6000 series of notebooks have a problem with motherboard issues, to include WiFi Failure, video problems, and other issues. You can do your own research on this, but it is pretty widespread, to the dv2000, dv6000, and dv9000. Many HP owners were offered enhanced warranties, and at the minimum, received a discount on repair.

See what you can do, as it won't get any better for you.

Power supply and CPU fans spin fast

There may be no problem here. Has it always done this? Usually when executing some major tasks the CPU gets hotter and sends a signal that it requires the fans to work harder to keep from overheating. This may be normal.
hope this helps!
