Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

My computer keeps shutting down.

I can get on my computer, HP Pavilion dv6000, to work for awhile but it keeps shutting down at any given time. I can be surfing the web, playing a game, or just letting it sit there. once it turns itself off i have to wait around 1 minute to turn it back on. The battery is fully charged and i keep my computer plugged in. The internal fan seems to always be working, as soon as my computer turns on the fan is going full force. Could this mean my computer is overheated? The reason I say this is because i play Lord of the Rings Rise of the Witch King which is probably a little more than my graphics card was made for. But I really dont know what is wrong. Does anybody have any suggestions or insight to offer?

    I have an HP. It doesnt matter what I am doing, my computer will shut off after being on anywhere from 10-45 minutes. I dont know whether it is the fan or if I have a virus.

Yes.... that is exactly what is hapening...
Try Cleaning out the laptop for starters...
(i recommend getting someone who is experienced)
The Fans Need to be cleaned.. the Heat Sink(s) need to have their Fins cleaned out... and I would Replace the Thermal Paste on your Processor Chip with High Temp Silver Thermal Paste instead of the typical **** they throw on it..

then another good idea is to look for a 3rd party Fan Controller for your laptop if you are a gamer, it allows you to run your fans when you choose and keep them on if you choose, which would help with cooling your laptop while gaming...

I had this exact problem with a customers computer andi found out that HP put faulty motherboards in the DV6000, DV9000, Compaq V6000 Series Computers. Thankfully HP fixing all computers for free and extending the warranty even if the warranty has expired they will ship you a box and you ship it off and they fix it at no cost. the turn around period is about 7 days.

Usb ports not working


hi,

What device are you trying to connect? was there an error message when you plug in the usb device. try booting up your computer to safe mode with networking.

1. Restart the computer
2. Keep on tapping F8 when you have the HP logo screen, using the down/up arrow of the keyboard choose safe mode with networking. if the device still not working then it could be a problem with the USB driver. You may try restoring your computer back to the working time using system restore. Just go to start then Accessories - System tools- system restore.Restore your computer to a working date.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

My computer keeps shutting down


Link to HP information and extended waranty
HP/Compaq have identified several laptops with inherent problems.
See if your laptop is listed on the linked page. Contact HP for Repair. They will send you a mailer and give you an RMA #
(Return Merchandise Authorization) They say the turn-around time is 10-14 days (a friend borrowed a laptop from me and it has been over a month). But in any case it is a free repair, and free shipping they pay for everything.
