Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Some notebooks are come with cpu that is not for mobile use but for desktop and hence sold at a cheaper price. As a result, the notebook is very hot. How can one tell if any cpu on the notebook is a mobile or desktop one?
In general a mobile CPU is appended by the letter m. e.g. Intels new iCore series have desktop processors named ix-xxx whereas their mobile versions are labelled ix-xxxm.
The best way for you to check your CPU model would be to either visit the HP homepage, search for your specific model and view the spec. Or you could go into your start menu, select the Run box, then type 'dxdiag' without the quotes, and press ok. This will bring up hardware information for your machine. Sometimes the run box is disabled from the start menu.
Hope this helps,

Testimonial: "how for the case of AMD cpu?"
You can easily find out by checking one of two places in windows. Look at system information utility under acessories/system tools or by opening up control panel system. The type of cpu is show right on the first page on both of those.
If your version of windows does not have those then you can look at the model number of your laptop. This will be on a sticker on the bottom. It will show the DV6000Z and under it will have another number like PSG-XXXX-XXX ( I don't remember the correct sequence for the DZ6000, have one somewhere but don't recall) Then you need to go to HP and search for that number. It should take you to either the support page or the specs page. There will be a listing showing what differant options came with your laptop including the cpu.
