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.

Hp Pavilion zd8000 shuts down loosing all opened windows


There is a software called "SpeedFan" which you can download here

This software will tell you the internal temperatures of the computer (so you can figure out if overheating is the problem). Most of the time overheating is due to excessive dust inside the laptop. The best bet is to get a can of compressed air and clean the inside out. This does require some disassembling of the system, so if you are not comfortable doing so I would advise you to take it to a local computer shop.

Another solution would be to purchase a "Laptop Cooler", this will lower your temperatures anywhere from 5-10 degree's, but can get annoying to lug around with you. You can view some laptop coolers here

If you happen to run the Speedfan application, let us know what the temperatures displayed as, and I can tell you if it is running too hot!
