Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

Hp Pavilion zd8000

Him My zd8000 has the fan on the entire time. Very noisy and then it automatically shuts down the computer. (like a light bulb switches off). It's really frustrating as I lose all the work I am doing and I never know when it is going to switch off.

Any suggestions? Is it a bug or is it overheating?

I agree - it's overheating. I had the same problem and still do if I'm not careful! Like it or not, this laptop runs hot. I put small wood blocks under the two back corners raising the back of the laptop about 3/4" higher. This allows for additional ventilation. I also discovered that there needs to be adequate room behind the laptop. If something large is too close, the warm air pushed out of the laptop will be pulled back in further raising the internal temperature causing it to overheat.

Hi,

I suggest try to call the manufacturer because if happens that its causing plastic burnt or dent due to overheating that means the hardware of the machine is failing, also the automatic shutdown is caused by overheating. If your going to call the manufacturer they have special support for those kind of issue.

Noisey fans


Noisy fans are not dirty fans, they're simply noisy. There is nothing to clean.
