Change the CPU for lower heat performance CPU.For example the AMD Turions are 35Watt, you can install AMD TK-42 which is 20 Watt only.This model can`t handle CPU over 31 watt without problem.The gum rubbers are too small, the air-in hole is small too.
This model designed for eskimos to use it on 0 Celsius .
Avoid HP repair centre, they won`t solve this problem,already screwed at planing.

Check the fan in the laptop to see if it spins freely, if it is faulty then replace the fan. The fan and heatsink may be clogged with dust, if so, then loosen the dust and remove this dust.

I cannot project to second screen

1) Laptop OFF, external display OFF, connect the external display to the laptop.

Turn the external display on.
Turn the laptop on.

There are at least THREE -> display options available.

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY'
2) Internal monitor of laptop and external display
3) External display ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and tap on the F4 key once.
Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F4 key.

No internal monitor, and not external display also, means problems with the graphics chipset. May be one of the HP/Compaq models, that has problems with the graphics chipset overheating.

Due to a poor cooling design for the graphics chipset.
Graphics chipset repeatedly overheats, and softens the solder connections of the graphics chipset to motherboard.
(BGA surface mount)

Laptop is turned off, and cools down. Solder connections (Solder joints), re-solidify. This causes Cold solder joints.

Remedy in this case is to reflow the graphics chipset, and add more cooling surface, to the small metal plate attached to the Cooling Tube, that sits on the graphics chipset.

There are two Fan/Heatsink Assemblies offered. (Thermal Module)

1) One is for models that have UMA motherboards.

[ Unified Memory Architecture.
A fancy way of stating the graphics memory is part of the System Resources. The Processor and Ram Memory.
Two other terms used are Integrated Graphics, or OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD ]

HP 430463-001 part number,


It's also used for the HP Pavilion dv2000 series, which DOES have a problem with graphics chipset cooling.

Look at the photo of the HP 430463-001, and at the Black round Fan Assembly.
Look to the left at the copper Cooling Tube. See that triangle shaped area that sticks out? This tiny surface area is what cools the graphics chipset.

SERIOUSLY inadequate!

(The Processor sits under that black square at the top, that has a smaller square hole in it. Four screws surround it.
{ You are looking at a Top View of the Thermal Module )

2) The second Thermal Module offered is for motherboards that has discrete graphics.
HP 417081-001,

This time a Bottom view is shown.
Do you see a difference shari_n?
No? Neither do I!

Here is one tech's solution for this. This is for reference ONLY.
Not advertising for tech, nor website,

This gives you more information on the BGA surface mount, using a BGA Rework Station,

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.

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.

HP (dv2000) laptop will not boot up at all

It appears to be a video card/mainboard problem very common with the symptoms you have described. Try to connect the laptop to an external monitor (see the associated buttons too). No video signal on the external monitor could indicate a damaged video card/mainboard. Not worth it to be repaired and the replacement is expansive. Check the price on a professional repair store. There are new laptops on the market more powerful than yours for about 500-600$. So you can make a choice. Less common, could be a memory problem.Try the laptop with a good previously checked memory (or if there are 2 bars in your laptop, try them one by one). If you do not get any video signal on the external monitor have the laptop, first diagnostic is most probable.
In both cases, if you get a video signal on the external monitor it means your screen is defective (also expensive to be replaced).

HP Pavilion dv2000

I have a 3 year-old DV2000 that recently has been overheating and shutting itself down. I installed a program called Core Temp to see if it was overheating. After switching it on, the temperature would quickly climb to about 80ºC at idle and go above 90º if I used the internet or any program that required a lot of processing. I saw the temperature go up to 100ºC whilst using Skype yesterday, at which point the computer switched off and I had to let it cool down for a while before switching it back on. It was also running incredibly slowly at times and I was worried it might have a virus.

Today I finally found a can of compressed air (hard to find here in Bogota) and sprayed some into the air vents at the back left-hand corner (this took about 2 minutes). When I switched the computer on, the temperature was stable at 55ºC and has reached a maximum of 60ºC under load. Right now, it is at 58ºC and is running much faster than it was before. The product I used is called "Air Express" (made in Mexico) and it is basically a canister of compressed air.
