Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
Unlike many others who have had display issues stemming from the video accelerator running too hot, my dv9000 series notebook will simply stop functioning. The keyboard will become non-responsive, along with the touch pad mouse and any devices that are plugged into the USB ports. Invariably a message will come up saying that there was a delayed write failure (hard drives go offline).
I have also noticed that this machine tends to run very hot, to the point that the keyboard is extremely warm to the touch with no prolonged contact with the areas right below it where the HDD's are housed. Sometimes if I am there when this occurs I can manage to shut the system down by momentarily pressing the power button (have windows power management configured to shut the system down when the power button is pressed for less than 5 seconds).
The display never goes out on it's own or fails to function, and the fans do run at idle with little change in speed as the system warms up or heavier CPU loads are imposed. This machine is never used on the lap (despite it being classified as a 'laptop' or 'notebook'). It is always kept on a hard surface with the rear area propped up (tilted forward) to allow maximum air flow through the vents and fans, no obstructions. This seems to help a little bit, but not much.
HP dv9000 CTO notebook, custom built, Intel Centrino Duo 2.0GHz, 2GB RAM, nVidia GeForce Go7600, DVD-RW, 17" widescreen WXGA display (no brightview), Intel Pro Gigabit LAN w/bluetooth and wireless A,B,G, dual HDD's (120GB/160GB) built March/April 2007 (only available with Vista, 'downgraded' to XP Pro but kept original pre-installed 64 bit Vista Ultimate HDD)
First of all pls do chk weather the fan below the laptop is functioning properly or not do u get lil vibro of the fan ??when u touch it wd ur palm ....it may be due to various reasons how much time does it take to get hot ??if it is too early then sir the mother board is going to say be bye and as u said tht the system become non responsive thts obvious cause the motherboard is malfuntioning tht time if u have the warrenty on the same get the mb replace
