Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

1 Answer

Fans Thanx! now i can see what's happening. It's working at 3% CPU and i am reading 40C at sensor 0 and 66C at sensor 2.! Its sweating for nothing!  Fooling around whith the fanspeeds dousn't seem wise at this stage. So i went looking at lowering the FSB speed . I don't know what mainboard or PLL manufacturer and type to put in the windows. So i can let CPUcool do it's own work. It gives me ICS/ 9148-04 for PLL.  The given FSB calculations ,however, do not work! CPU cool states that 8 bytes were found where there schould be 6.   Now I'm stuck. Any Idea's ? My PAvilion is to be precise a ZD 8320EA s/n CNF5480SWN

First of all, we need to check whether the Cooling Fans of the Notebook are working perfectly or not.

To check this, check if you are able to feel any hot air coming from the cooling fan vent at the rear of the Notebook.

However, you can also try by updating the BIOS of the Notebook by downloading the latest BIOS Update available from the link below according to the Model Number of your Notebook which is ZD8320EA :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp31501-32000/sp31537.exe

Copy and paste the link in the address bar of a new IE window and press enter to open it.

Save the file on to the Notebook like into My Documents folder or on to the Desktop.

Close all the windows and applications and double click on the downloaded file.

This will update the BIOS. Donot try or attempt to restart or turn off the Notebook when the BIOS is being updated. This may make the Notebook useless. Let the BIOS be updated automatically and it should restart automatically.

You can also try purchasing Notebook Cooling pads which can be placed on which the Notebook need to be placed.

Try finding this kind of devices at the local Computer part stores.

Hope this helps...

My CPU Heat


You should check Task MGR and see what process's are running, you need to find out if the CPU is being pushed, when you are not doing anything the CPU should be close to zero or between 0-10 percent.

So if you check and find the CPU is running at Idle, then you check the CPU fan clean it.

You should install software that will show you the CPU temp and fan speed, as you work the CPU through software running, the fan should increase in speed.

If the CPU is not staying cool near 40C, then look for a better cooler.

Thermal compound has no miracle, the cooler is what is important, and the case fan is not as important as the CPU cooler itself.

On the mother board there are plugins that are used for fan only and nothing else. They are usually located next to the CPU three prong pin inserts. They are programmed to receive information that also includes the thermo read a well you have to have a 3 wire fan setup one to power the fan and the other to read the CPU and fan Temp as well as the speed of the fan. If the fan is not a three wire fan your computer will go on the bleak and will not be able to read the Thermo or the speed configurations.
It is imperative to place the fan in the proper portion of the mother board with the three wire connection in order. In some cases you have to reset the BIOS to be able to read the new fan configurations. Also with this said since you have mentioned that the fan will not spin at all and the other ones do you may have a defective fan. Not sure where you got this but if it will not spin do not install this fan. Check the wiring and also on the mother board it will say CPU fan only or Fan or Fan for CPU make sure that you have the right fan slot. If all else fails you can strip just the rubber on the wires and wiring them together not recommended to get the fan to work for you if you are insistent on using this new fan. If it works from wiring them together you may get a reading on the BOOT fan failure.
Get a fan that works for your board configuration and one that you know works before installing a new fan. This is all I can tell you without seeing the computer itself. Thanks for using FixYa! John

The cooling fan racing is a symptom of a No Post state in the Motherboard. The Power LED and diagnostic LED indications would be helpful in resolving your issue. If the power LED is flashing Amber, the power supply is suspect, solid Amber points to the motherboard or something connected to it. The DIAG LEDs 1234 on the front or ABCD on the back give more specific information.

Initial Impression, is motherboard failure, post the DIAG and Power LED indications for more exact diagnosis

CPU over emperature


It sounds like you have a couple of potential problems. First it could be the fan is not working due to failure or not being plugged in properly. Second is that you need to put Thermal Paste between the processor and the heatsink. If you have not done this before, I suggest seeking out a friend that has to help out. There is many kinds of thermal paste and not one is universal. Find out the one that the CPU manufacturer recommends.

Motherboard failure


If the system appears to power on, but you do not see anything on the screen, there are several methods to determine the problem at hand.

Make sure the cooling system is fucntional.. a bad CPU fan has been known to make the computer power on, but halt and do nothing to protect the CPU. Some CPU fan's have speed sensors, and other do not, some motherboards require the speed sensor to be functional, or resistance in the line.

Some mainboards will function enough to power the system up, but go no further due to onboad componant failures such as bad / broken SMR, SMC, or capacitor. If you are sure the mainboard works, and the monitor is known to function, proceed with the following troubleshooting tips.

1) Remove everything but the memory, GPU, CPU, and HDD, see if boot is successful, if not Step 2)

2) Replace the Power supply, under powered PSU's can make a system unresponsive / fail to make it to POST, if fails step 3)

3) Replace Memory, if fails, 4)

4) Replace GPU.. if fails, 5)

5) Replace CPU, a non-funtional CPU will alow everything to power up, but will not allow POST in some machines.

6) Replace Motherboard, if fails, start at step 1)
