Question about Computers & Internet
I have had my pavilian ZV5000 for about 3 years and the fan runs constantly, never shuts off and most times is louder than the TV. The fan goes nuts even when the computer is just powered on and I am not doing anything with it. I called HP and they want $250 just to look at it. Anyone else run into this? Thanks This lap top has been away for repairs, three times during 12 mths warranty various faults and now it has been returned with the cooling fan running constantly at 50% speed and is very noisy , Problem is not due to dust build up, I think the lap top was over heating and has been set up to prevent this by setting a parameter to obtain fan to run full time at 50% speed . HAVE ANY OTHERS EXPERINCED THIS AT ALL,
In side you're ZV5000 are two fans. These fans sit on a spindle which spins. The spindle may be worn which is giving you that loud noise. (Or a fan blade could be bent or warped from heat).
The fan it’s self may be loose & can be tightened.
The only way to check if the spindle is worn would be to dissemble the ZV5000. With the correct instruction you can check the fans. (And also clean the fans & copper heat sinks).
Here is a link to do this you're self, including pictures.
It's worth taking a look & saving you're self a few bucks.
Good Luck & take you time!
