Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
Is there any way I can fix it myself rather than bringing it in a shop. Or a cheap way to fix it like buying a new cpu fan or some heating compound? Please advise....
Dv1000's have a known issue with the heat sink fan. the ball bearing in the fan (which is what allows the blades on the fan to spin) will "pop" out making it so the fan is not able to spin.
good news is its incredibly easy to fix. unfortunetly to get to it you will need to completely disassemble the computer to get to the heat sink fan.
once youre there all you need to do is squeeze the middle of the fan from both sides. you should hear or feel a little pop or click.
reassemble and enjoy.
