Question about HP Compaq nx9030 Notebook
371796-001 HP nx9030 heat fan works when tested but dosnt come on to cool cpu when hot
Go to bios settings by pressing F10 for hp .. there select the optimal factory defaults.and engage and also save settings with F10 ...and exit ..This will get rid of any wrong settings made in bios ..related with he fan ..and should start proper..The only thing that can malfunction is caused by a higher temperature to start ,, and never get to it ..
If it still makes the same ..you should consider changing it ..or see the wires to be proper inserted..cause it has 2 for power and one for starting..and can be damaged..but still functional when you check it ..just the wire for the start to be damaged or not making contact .. ..

Best place to look is ebay. Look it up as a DV2000, as far as I know all the dv2000 series use the same cpu cooling fan. Otherwise, if you have the laptop apart, use the serial number or m/n on the part to look it up on ebay. I do this daily at my computer repair store and have lots of luck with hp laptop fans.

Testimonial: "Good suggestion! I found the exact part number on e-Bay. Only thing is most appear to be used. I wonder if they are any better than the one I have"
Tips for a great answer:
The installation of a CPU fan horizontally to the plane of the motherboard is the most common installation orientation there is. Your options when installing your CPU fan are to blow cool air onto the heat sink or to pull cool air through the heat sink from the motherboard. Horizontal installations show negligible advantages in either installation direction. The differences in temperature usually vary by only 1 or 2 degrees Celsius. The main point to consider when installing a horizontal CPU fan is the location of the rear exhaust fan on the case. If the rear exhaust fan on the case is parallel to the processor, it is advantageous to have the fan pull cool air from the motherboard and push it out above the heat sink. This is because the case fan will quickly draw that hot air away from the CPU and out of the case, allowing for quick cooling.
Vertical, or tower, heat sinks rise high enough off the motherboard to allow for a fan to be installed perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard. This allows for cooling to go from the front to the back of the case, as opposed to going from the bottom to the top. Optimal installations for vertical heat sinks are blowing toward either the back or the top of the case. If there is no exhaust fan in the top face of your computer's case, it is more effective to orient your fan on your vertical heat sink so that it blows toward the rear exhaust fan of the case. If there is an exhaust fan on the top face of your computer case, it is almost always more effective to mount your CPU fan so that it blows air up toward the top of your case. The reasoning behind this is that hot air rises and will more naturally flow off the top of your case. Also, top-mounted fans are usually larger and allow for faster airflow out of the case.
It is often the case with nonstock heat sinks that the manufacturer has designed the heat sink's fan to be mounted in a limited number of orientations. This is usually evidenced by limited mounting notches on the heat sink itself. Most aftermarket heat sinks use technologies such as heat pipes that have specific cooling needs to operate appropriately. Because of this, it is important that in any CPU fan installation you follow the manufacturer's installation instructions.
