Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

7 Answers

Dv9000 overheating. hello my name Tony. I was reading about a problem on the dv9000 that overheated. I have a dv9000that went dead 3 weeks before the one year warranty ended. Got it fixed and back online within 2 weeks. Four months later the "same exact problem happened". Obviously some support rep out of canada is telling me that I had 90 days to report that problem again. I come from a strong hardware IT background, and I can tell you that this machine overheated like a mother. I personaly thing the GPU died. Of course tech support won't replace the part with a new one, instead we get a rebuilt board with less than half the life expectancy. In any case I would like some advise if you would on how to handle this situation. I also read that you mentioned that hp had extended the warranties on this unit because of this problem. Can you elaborate on that, is there proof of that somewhere? I sincerely thank you for any insight you may offer me. By the way, my email address is apitruzzella@yahoo.com Thank you Tony

I’m trying to spread the word that there is a BIOS ACPI DSDT patch to increase the fan speed and prevent overheating of your HP DV9000 or DV6000 computer. I reflowed my NVIDIA BGA assembly and made this patch so now I’m not worried that my computer is going to overheat again. My GPU stays between 49C and 58C. If you want to control the speed of your fan, read “How I Fixed My Overheating HP DV9000 Computer: Software Solution: Patching the DSDT”

Like jlmalone said, it is definately ventilation problem... which translates to some design issues with the laptop (Left side of the laptop is fried  where as the right side is cool at normal temp). The heat transfusion is not the perfect desgin.

Have a HP dv9207us and had the motherboard replaced under warranty at two months. It used to run very hot, idling and 60°C and 80°C under heavy load. I have since changed to the power saver plan which I modified setting the maximum for the processor at 90% power. It now Idels at 32°C and reaches 48°C under load. The computer has been running continuously for over a year without any problems. I believe that the processor was actually overclocked by about 10% which was courting the overheating problems. If your machine is still running I suggest you reduced the power settings. I know of other machines that were freezing randomly and reducing the power setting in Vista software problem. It really did not affect the speed of the machine since the processor really operates much over the 50 to 75% range. Good luck

I had this exact problem occur. I'll tell ya how I solved it. I bought a Belkin Cooling Platform to put my laptop on. I know this isn't an ideal solution, but for me it has worked.

Our display driver got busted because of overheat. 
Here is the solution: Buy a usb powered laptop cooler that should cost no more than 10 bucks. It workes well enogh so that you can use the laptop for hours(considering it is plugged in) with out even feeling heat.

Hello, My HP dv9000's screen has split into four horizontal parts. They are all slightly yellowish and it is almost impossible to read anything in them. Please can you help?


I suppose you must have a Nvidia Graphic card in your laptop....

This is a very common problem with nVidia geforce 8400 and 8600 cards.
Serach google with this "Defective Nvidia geforce card" and you will see lots of user facing same problem in HP, Dell etc..

I too have an Hp laptop with nvidia geforce 8400. I have faced similar problems(screen got divided into 8 parts) in past for 3 times. Every time I have to replace my motherboard at HP service center.... It is caused by overheating of laptop that destroys the nvidia graphic card.
Go to the service Center and ask for a motherboard replacement.
hope this will help.....

96 Accord Ex overheating


Based on the info you provided,this appears to be a classic radiator problem. The tiny coolant passages in the radiator are clogged, and are not allowing coolant to flow thru to let the fans do their work.

HP pavillion dv9000 screen went dead -- black


Due to the overheating issues with the dv9000's it's more than likely the motherboard has gone bye bye. You can try plugging your laptop to a regular desktop monitor to see if it's the screen; but you would have heard it chime on if that was the case. Unless you had your volume muted before the incident. Try checking the RAM (one by one), then remove the hard drive and see if you see any graphics. If none of those work, prepare for a dv9000 funeral or punt!

Smoke from monitor LG Flatron EZ T710BH


Hello pepito,
If it's working fine now, that's great! For the while, it'd be best to leave it as is it, in a well-ventilated place (not too close to walls or heater or fridges) where it can't get overheated. See if anything else happens over the next week or so. If it does again, you'd probably be able to guess what it is now, if not overheating (maybe voltage fluctuations...or maybe there were some tinkerings on with the monitor?). Either way, get it checked soon. Better to do that while it's still running.

Toshiba Laptop overheating


Hello,

Your Problem is of overheating the unit.

Pls check the Air exhaust of the Laptop. The fan may be blocking air and may be causing the processor hot. It's better to
service the Laptop if problem still persists.
