Re: HP DV2910us -where to order cpu cooling fan for
Best place to look is ebay. Look it up as a DV2000, as far as I know all the dv2000 series use the same cpu cooling fan. Otherwise, if you have the laptop apart, use the serial number or m/n on the part to look it up on ebay. I do this daily at my computer repair store and have lots of luck with hp laptop fans.

Hi, Presario CQ60 Repair Manual From the above link from HP Official Support you can download the service/repair manual for instructions and photos for dis-assembly. Refer to "Fan/heat sink assembly" on page 4-41. At page 4-7 onwards, you would find the instructions about opening the laptop. INSTRUCTIONS & PHOTOS Follow the instructions carefully and remove the Fan/ Heat Sink and Clean it using a tooth Brush.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya! CreativeTECH
The fan is attached to the heat-sink and can be removed/unscrewed off the heatsink. Take the fan to the computer or elecronics hobby shop for a replacement fan.
The are after-market CPU heat-sink fan assemblies available (these usually provide better cooling than the original units), just remove the existing assembly and take it to your friendly computer shop for a suitable replacement.
The problem could be a damage to the MB by excessive heat produced by Nvidia GPU. The only way to fix this permanently is to take out the MB and reflow the GPU with heat. You can find a video on youtube how to do it. You must take out the piece of gel between GPU and cooling unit and replace it with copper bar or penny made prior 1983 - still made out of copper. Also clean the fan. Use heat transfer paste like arctic cool - not a glue, on both sides of the penny. Install win7. Win7 does not use the coprocessor and will help to ran the notebook cooler. Install speedFan 4.40 - free utility to see what the temp is of your GPU and CPU. If you did good job it will stay around 55C. If your HP notebook is still running check the temp. If the GPU is running 80C or more it will melt the connections on the MB and quit working sooner or later.
Yes that is what you need to do. It's either due to your CPU board having issues or your fan is just old and needs to be replaced. You always need to have a fan running to cool off your CPU. Let me know if this helps and if you need anything else.
frist you will have to uninstall the windows vista competely .
(the simplest way is to format the drive in which you have vista installed)
but even after that you might have the vista boot screen left
to remove it download a software
try this site
this one really helped me out
and will ceratinly help u too
Here is the link for all the various support manuals, software and instructions for your PC if you need them;
CPU fans should be plugged into the CPU fan power socket on the motherboard, in order to receive variable speed control instructions. If the fan has been incorrectly connected to a different motherboard fan socket, or directly to the power supply then it will run at a constant speed.
If it is correctly plugged in to the correct socket, then the hardware management software (there are many possible options here - please post back with which management software you are using and I can give more specific instructions) that comes with the PC should allow you to change the settings - you can change the temperature range at which the cpu fan will go into higher speed mode - it sounds like you may have this set too high
You should also be able to control the fans from the BIOS set-up menu - this should be accessible when you boot up. usually it will be by pressing F8, but all systems are set up slightly differently. watch the screen as you boot up and it should give instructions for this.
Hope this helps, please give more details of how your machine is set up if you need more specific help :)
