Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Overheats During Extended Use

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)

    Yes, both fans do spin freely when the system is off and both do energize when the system is running. The system does get quite warm within an hour after it's turned on, but at this point in time it won't begin to fail until it's been running for several hours (around 8-10). I did purchase the three year warranty at the same time as I ordered the system built, but I am not sure if I have grounds to qualify for a warranty MOBO replacement, considering how long it takes for the system to become unstable.



    Are notebook PC's designed for prolonged use, or should I consider resurrecting my desktop PC?

    Okay, thank you for showing me the error of my ways ;-)

How do i fix a split screen of my Toshiba c600d-t36b laptop


The quickest way to change the display output settings is to use the
display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order
(the last two options are available if an external monitor is
connected):
? Built-in display only
? Built-in display and external monitor (simultaneously)
? External monitor only
? Built-in display and TV (or other external video device)
? TV (or other external video device)
? External monitor and TV
? Built-in display and external monitor (extended mode)
? Built-in display and TV (extended mode)
? External monitor and TV (extended mode)
? Swap-Switch primary display between internal display
and external monitor when using extended desktop

Laptop keeps cutting off seems to get hot fast


Hi:
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.

There is no display on my HP Pav dv9000


Is there any display during start up? If so, then the possible solution is that the display has been toggled for TV or external monitor display. Try hitting Function F5 on the keyboard (default display toggle function) and see if that turns on your LCD display.
