I have a DV9000 laptop and I have problem with the fan control and the Heat Sink. The tempeture of the GPU and CPU go very high (GPU 60 and CPU 48), but the fan runs very slow, like if the tempeture is ok and after that the computer stops. As well I want to replace the pads from the heat sink, so I would like to know which types of pads I should use for this computer and where the GPU is located, because there are three chips (the CPU in right side, one in the middle and another in the left side with the nvidia signature). my computer is Intel Duo and the bios is version D.25.
If you own one of the following laptops: Pavilion: dv2000, dv2500, dv2700, dv6000, dv6500, dv6700 dv9000, dv9500, dv9700 Compaq Presario: A900, C700, F700, V3000, V3500, V3700, V6000, V6500, V6700 HP: G6000, G7000 HP Compaq: 6720s Go to the following website: [url] or [url] Theere isw a specific range of battery serial numbers that are being recalled by HP. If you have a bettery that matches the reported serial number range you should contact HP immediately for a replacement battery.
I would like to reduce the tempeture of my CPU and GPU. The current tempeture of the GPU is 60C and CPU 50C. I have thermal paste between the heat sink and the chips, but it is not enough. I would like to know if someone has tried the thermal copper pads from ebay or another effective method. [url] Do you know if the thermal copper pads can really reduce 20% of the tempeture in GPU and CPU?

to replace my Compaq V6000 AMD motherboard to an Intel. i am one of the victims of Nvidia GPU failure and i need to replace my motherboard to Intel. The original motherboard part number is 443777-001. i am aware of replacing amd cpu and fan to an intel which i have it on hand. i check Hp support and there are several intel motherboard numbers available to get such as part number 434725-001 but not sure if its the right part.
I'm curious if anyone knows of a higher capacity fan or fans for the gpu and cpu heatsinks in an I9300/xps2.. I got to wondering if there are same size fans which move more air, maybe they spin faster, higher RPMs.. Also, would cutting slots or a hole in the left side of the cpu/gpu heatsink fan help or harm that side..? Anyone played with this, or experimented? My 7800gtx GPU idles at near 60degrees when fan control is set to auto..

is there any easy way to change fan speed on my dv9740us by via software? i usually here the fan operating but it doesnt seem to be doin so at mex speed even on max cpu/gpu load at present im using rivatuner to ic my gpu and rmclock to undervolt my cpu could i possibly use these programs to control my fan? if not then are there any programs that would allow me to do this?
searching for the best spec'd DV9000 gpu, but my search results always just show up the overheating problem... does anyone know if there is a list around with all the different options of DV9000's? I currently have a 7600 go GPU, and I just bought a DV9000 mobo for $3 with a 7900 go GPU on it. As I can get them fairly cheap if I'm lucky, I want to find out what is the best GPU available on a DV9000 system board.

I've been using my nx7400 for more than 3 years. I undervolted it with RM Clock and it was always running around 45-52 degrees idle and 53-59 under load. The fan only kicked in under load and over 55 degrees. I changed the CPU fan for a new one, I changed the thermal paste for MX-3 and I regularly use compressed air to clean the heat sink. Lately, it's running full throttle in intervals even in idle and temperatures 45-50. (5-15 seconds full throttle, 10 seconds inaudible... and so on) I could always leave it on my nightstand 24/7 as it was inaudible.
recently i bought this HP Compaq CQ61. inside BIOS there's a setting "Fan always on" and currently it sets at "On" as it keeps the fan constantly running. my question is, is it ok if i set it to "disable" hoping it will come at different temp? is it a good idea? just want to confirm. as long as i dont want to hear annoying fan noises, but the same time doesnt want to screw my motherboard?
I have a HP Compaq 2230S business laptop, but this question could be put to any HP laptop. The fan is constantly running when the laptop is plugged into the power outlet, but as soon as I pull the plug to run on battery power the fan powers down and stops. I re-plug the laptop back in and the fan kicks up again. This is not good as I almost burned myself when I picked up the laptop after an hour sitting on the table on battery power. The hard drive is right beside the processor, so the laptop gets really hot. Vista x64 Ultimate is what I'm using at the moment and my power scheme calls for 1% minimum and 100% maximum CPU on battery power.
Thinking about getting the HP Compaq 2230s but curious about in general bloatware on buisness notebooks compared to Home & Home Office notebooks.

Just for you FIRST GENERATION dv6000 and dv9000 AMD owners, a new BIOS update has been posted over at HP. This update will also work with the Compaq V60xx-V64xx AMD notebook series. Quote: Released: 2009-03-25 Version: F.42 Compatibility: Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit), Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic (64-bit), Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium (64-bit), Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit), Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic (32-bit), Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Microsoft Windows XP Media Center, Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition..........
I see there are new HP DV6 models due out with the Processor type AMD Turion� II Ultra Dual-Core Processor M640 � 2.60 GHz, Level 2 cache 2 MB CPU, how good is this? Also how good is the 4530 GPU? Really wanting a laptop for music, browsing, video and some gaming how good would this CPU/gpu cope with that?
I have just finished testing with my HP DL380 G3 server and I have been looking at different companies / facilities to ship it off to for co-location. How do you ease your own concerns of hardware failures on the server (aside from HDD which are easy to replace) when it is so far away. I control a datacenter / networking environment for my company, so I have immediate access to any of our gear that breaks, but I will not be co-locating within our facility for obvious reason. Are most people using left over Dell / Compaq / HP stuff or custom builds? I went with HP because of the built-in iLO capability to lessen the need for so much remote hands in the event of a reboot etc. I guess the biggest thing that is worrying me right now is a catstrophic hardware failure such as motherboard / cpu. All others can be quickly fixed (HDD, RAM, etc), but with a motherboard / cpu failure, the extended downtime can be long while spare are ordered / shipped.
I'm now very happy owner of a cooling pad with fans. My temps are : CPU : 29 degrees GPU : 40 degrees HDD : 27 degrees
My Idle temp seems to be within the range of: 27C-43C for CPU 44C-51C for GPU These are temps when I'm not even doing anything. The fan activates when the GPU hits 51C and stops when the GPU temp reaches 44C. The CPU doesn't seem to be a factor in activating the fan. Use I8Kfangui to see your CPU and GPU temps. Just don't click on AUtomatic Fan Control because that will severely lag your system until you turn it off. http://www.diefer.de/i8kfan/index.html
The few programs that I know that detect fans won't even show a fan on my laptop, nor does it show on my Friend's G60 (or whatever the silver one is, I don't remember it exactly). Mines isn't broken or anything,
how to control the fan on the HP6930P? I disabled "fan always on AC" in the bios. The fan is always on. It doesn't disturb at the lowest level, but it ramps up every 5 mins or so for 2 or 3 seconds. I find that ramping up disturbing and would like to disable it. Considering how cool the air coming out is compared to laptops I have had in the past (Thinkpads and Toshiba) I would say HP is being conservative with their settings. Is there a program or some bios setting?
I have a Compaq V6310US with the Turion TL-50 (64 X2 1.6 GHz), I have already sent it in for a new systemboard under HP's recall. I use CPU-Z HWMonitor to monitor temps, here are my average LOAD temps (HL2/Counter-Strike:Source ~1 hour play time) with and without chill mat. Without Chill Mat: THRM: 79C Core 0: 78C Core 1: 85C GPU: 98C With Chill Mat: THRM: 77C Core 0: 75C Core 1: 82C GPU: 94C Idle for both is more around ~30/25/35/58. I get absolutely no signs of overheating during play. Are these acceptable temps or am I going to fry the GPU (or CPU) again in another year? Especially the temps without the mat? I don't always use it because the temps are pretty similar with and without it anyway. Also, anyone knows what the THRM temp is exactly?
I am editing some AVCHD home videos using 1558(spec in my signature). I noticed when I do that my CPU cores rempain between 45-52C range but my GPU shoots to 64C and stays there. I am concerned about the GPU as I understand the only fan in the 1558 is on the CPU so GPU is not getting any direct cooling. My question is if there is a way to lower GPU workload and put it on CPU for my video editing .....
My 4810T has the fan always on (not too loud, but on nevertheless...). I can't tell if it's because of the CPU (intel SU9400) or the GPU (intel gma 4500mhd). Is there any option where I can control this? I'm on Ubuntu and I'm using the "CPU frequency scaling monitor" applet to throttle the CPU, but even in it's lowest frequency, the fan never shuts down.

my screen on my laptop broke as in spider web broke. I have a Compaq Presario V6500Z and I want to know if the Current model HP screens (for example HP Pavilion DV6113US screen) are compatible and interchangable with the compaq since both companies share the same parts.
my old crappy targus cooler broke for my hp dv5t and I am looking for a new one. My HP gets very hot, and I am especially worried about the cpu. Even with max undervolting it still gets to 65-75 quite often. Since I do not know much about which cooler would be best for my hp, I was wondering what cooler you use/recommend for this computer. Also I was wondering if the Zalman 1000 would be big enough for the hp dv5t 15.4 inch, to cool the gpu and cpu or should i be springing for the 2000 in case i decide to go zalman.
I've been on the HP site and to be honest, it's not the most clear and concise site to use. I have a relatively old HP530 (p/n GU327AA#ABU) which is still pretty nippy and fault-free (touch wood). The only problem is a very noisy fan which seems to be a common problem with these laptops and HP laptops in general. Could anyone please recommend a replacement fan for this HP model or do I have to stick to the same fan and/or buy from HP? I've not yet tried removing the back and cleaning the fan as it doesn't sound faulty, damaged or impeded at all, it simply runs loud, very loud! I've also just ordered a laptop cooler for it to sit on but I'd still like to get its' fan sorted out if possible.
I have a Compaq v6000 (same as HP Pavilion dv6000) running on MCP51, it has a TL-52 in it - a 90nm cpu. I have two questions first can I upgrade the cpu to a 65nm TL-60 or RM-70? What difference in temperetures and performance could I expect?
I have a HP G72 Laptop that is three years old. The cooling fan stopped working all of a sudden

Very nice machine in every other aspect, except for the noisy fan that I've learned from reading here and elsewhere that HP does not recognize as a problem. So, I'm thinking of replacing it myself. Can I do that without voiding my warranty? What about having an authorized HP repair center do it for me, if I shell out for the fan myself? what fan to use? And is there a service manual around?
Got my self a new HP DV5-1110, Athlon X2, 3450. But can anybody recommend any good monitoring software for Vista, 32bit? On my desktop I use "dtemp", to show the harddrive temp in the sys tray, but dtemp cant read the hdd temp on my HP And an another program for showing the cpu load or/and cpu clock in the sys tray..? tried NHC 2 pre 06, but it hangs when I go to settings to configure the program..
I have won a HP Pavilion DV6-1220sb in a contest and it comes with a Dual-Core T4200 CPU running @ 2Ghz. I want to upgrade the CPU by replacing it with a Intel Montevina Core 2 Duo T9600 CPU. I cannot reach the CPU by removing the lids from the bottom or by removing the keyboard. how to reach the CPU on the HP Pavilion DV6?
I know the DV9000 has problems. I've had the laptop for 3.5yrs and at the end of last yr it died on me. I tried to find out the problem and eventually figured it was the overheating and badly manufactured design as so many other people with this laptop found. Even took it in for a fault assessment and they told me that the integrated graphics card was probably fried. Thing is, the other day I bought a screwdriver set and decided to open up the laptop and take a look around and boot it up again and now I'm having second thoughts. Firstly, if it was the graphic card that was fried, surely the hdd would still boot into windows? When I turn on the laptop, the screen goes grey / lights up (as it normally did when the laptop was working) but nothing much happens after that. I dont hear the hdd booting up and nothing really happens. All I hear is the fan working and eventually after 20min of nothing happening I just pulled the power cable out. So I tried taking out the hdd and booting up. Nothing comes up on the display and nothing happens. Even if the hdd is out, should any sort of display come up? like surely the BIOS or even a screen saying "no hdd detected" should come up? If it is the graphics card that is fried, does that mean that if I plug a secondary monitor into the monitor port on the laptop, it shouldnt display anything should it? or does the extra monitor port on the laptop run through a different circuit system than the main LCD screen on the laptop?
My girlfriend has an HP dv9000 (17" laptop) i dont know the exact specs, only that she is running vista 32bit. But the problem is that every time she has to either restart, return from hibernate, or return from sleep mode, the computer cant do it. If its restarting or returning from hibernate, the computer will begin to start up, you'll hear a click, and it will power down and power up again, click, and repeat the process endlessly. From sleep mode, the computer will turn the screen on and off like you just "woke" it.
I just got an HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop a few days ago and everything is great, except for this static noise coming from the speaker. It kind of sounds like when you have your TV on a blank screen, but you have the volume as high as it goes. Every now and then there's a little pop or crack sound too. Some important things to note: - It was a refurb - The noise immediately stops when the volume is muted - All drivers are up to date - If I go into the volume settings, I can slide the volume all the way over to the right side, and the noise stops, but any amount of volume going through the left side and the noise is back - The noise is the same at any volume level - If I plug in headphones, there is no noise through the headphones, it only happens on the speakers At first I thought it wasn't anything big, just a driver update or just a matter of breaking the laptop in, but now after a few days it's starting to get annoying. I don't want to leave the sound on mute all the time, and even when I am listening to audio I can still hear this noise.
I having some problems with a DV6000 notebook. I originally set the machine up with two partitions, one for his documents and the C: My problems started when I was doing some routine maintenance to the machine which belongs to my brother. The C partition was getting quite low so I decided to knock some space of d and add to c. I have done this many times using partition magic but for some reason it failed. This left me we a hall.dll error on boot, however the machine will still boot if I pressed enter. It also meant that I had about 2 gig of partitioned space, plus the 1 gig for quick launch. I re-added the 2gig space back to D using gParted, but still no luck, so I then decided to reinstall quick launch, which seemed to go ok accept that after I rebooted, Nothing, just a blinking cursor on the screen. I then tired to do a recovery using the disks, of course though disk two and three are stuffed. I cant see anywhere, where it asks me to press f11 to restore from the recovery partition which still should be intact............
Basic problem, laptop gets so hot at times it can cause burn marks. While playing WoW, ill get 60+ FPS then as soon as it heats up, yes im using a cooling pad, it then drops to 15 FPS and will run at that for the entire time im playing.
It all started when my dv9000 stopped detecting the DVDRW drive, i tried the same optical drive on a friend's laptop and it worked perfectly. I decided to go for an external DVD drive. After a while it stopped booting from the secondary hard drive (primary hard drive had crashed, so i installed vista on the secondary one). It detects the HDD, but it does not boot from it, the HDD is not even listed in the boot media list when you press f9 button at poweron. So i decided it was time to upgrade the bios, i entered my product number at the hp website, it gave a dv9627 as my model, in the bios its listed as a dv9500, so i downloaded the bios update for dv9500, boot from bootable USB Drive and did the upgrade. From then on my laptop never came on again. I found out about the crisis recovery tool, got a usb floppy drive, created the recovery disk, removed the battery held down the win + b first, plugged in power, powered on, left it for around 15mins, nothing happened, tried fn+b still nothing. The laptop screen just flickers once when i press the power button, power led on, hdd led comes on and then goes off, media button led are all on, other than that no sign of life, but the processor gets alittle hot so i suspect its still functioning. I really need help, i believe the bios can be recovered without sending the laptop to hp. I'm a student running on a really tight budget.
My girlfriends HP dv9000 adapter broke at the cord where it plugs in the the laptop and she needs to buy a replacement. It is an 18.5V 3Amp adapter. She found one on ebay (claiming to be new) for like $0.99, but I'm extremely skeptical that it will work satisfactorily and may even damage the laptop. Do you all have any suggestions for replacing it? Purchasing a new one from HP would work, but it is definitely the most expensive options. Has anybody had any luck with ones from other sellers, from ebay, amazon, etc.?
While playing WoW the FPS is from 15-65. When it cools off, ill get a great FPS and can play it fine but it will quickly heat up and drop for 20-30 minutes at a time. Right now im using a cooling pad but it doesnt help much at all except to give me that 45-60 FPS time for about 5 minutes. The bottom gets so hot at times it can literally burn my skin, I have a couple of marks to prove it.
I purchased an HP latop right when Windows 7 was coming out and the HP laptop had Windows Vista when I bought it but I was sent a free upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate by HP during the time when they were selling laptops with Vista and sending free upgrades.So what I want to know since the fan stopped working some time ago, (cooling it with a small fan from Walmart sending air around and inside it somewhat) on the HP laptop I purchased and recieved the free upgrade. If I return the HP laptop to factory settings (did a complete backup when purchased) and put Vista back on it, can I use my Windows 7 Ultimate disk in a newly purchased laptop since it will still only be on one laptop since I am returning the old one to Vista?And do I have to uninstall Windows 7 Ultimate with the Upgrade disk so it knows it's no longer on that computer. In other words are they linked by some type of serial number on my HP laptop that only allows me to install the Windows Upgrade disk on that specific machine?
i thought the hp dv5t graphics card came with a 9600m gt as shown in this review.. [url] how come in the hp online store site now, it only comes with a integrated intel gpu...? what happened to the dedicated nvidia card? =((looking for a good 15.4/14'' laptop with a decent dedicated gpu)
I have a DV9000 with a GeForce Go 7600. I was browsing the HP drivers yesterday when I noticed that a new version of the GeForce drivers was available for my system, released on April 28, 2009. Their site describes it as: HP Link Quote: Description: This package contains the driver for the NVIDIA GeForce Series video chip in the supported notebook models and operating systems................
Alright, so to start off I'll just say that I love the DV2. I bought the dual core version loaded when it first went up for customization at the HP site. I have, however, noticed that it can run a tad hot. When I first got it, without a cooler, the CPUs usually went from between 41c-45c from light usage, and the GPU from between 51c-55c. Even when propping the back up I only saw a drop of 1c total. I bought a small cooler for it and saw a fairly good drop. The temps of the CPU where down to 36c-39c and the gpu was down to 45c-49c with both sometimes even going lower depending on how much the AC in the house was on. I did try some gaming on this, playing some HL2. The CPU got to 60c at the highest and the GPU also only got to about 60c while on the cooling pad. So, a few days ago I updated my BIOS to the latest on for the DV2 from the HP site. I noticed right away that my temps where higher. The temps while on my cooler where the same as they used to be without it, and with the cooler off the GPU was getting up to 60c while at idle. I tried a few things, like setting the GPU to low power mode with the Catalyst controls, but that didn't help. Not sure what to do I noticed this morning that I hadn't gotten SP2 for Vista yet. So I decided to get it in hopes that it would help.. now my DV2 is even hotter. On the cooling pad my CPU was at around 60c and GPU was at 65c while at idle. I've had it on all day, with all the vents in my room open and the AC up high and the lowest it's gotten is to 50c for the CPU and 55 for the GPU.
Notebook HP dv7 1199 ev My motherboard is Compal 30f4 Version 99.67 I would like to upgrade my current CPU Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 (2.53 GHz, Level 2 cache 6MB). and graphic card Nvidia GEforce 9600M GT I have none experience moding a notebook before and i need some information. -To begin with, how would i know if i can replace my processor, and what processors should be compatible with my system?

I recently picked up an open item + refurbished dm3-1039 from my local MicroCenter for $362 after tax It's the model that comes with the Athlon Neo L335 (dual core, 1.6) and the HD 3200 with something like 256 or 384 of sideport memory. It's a nice little machine, definitely performing beyond my expectations, but because I have 7 days to figure out if I want it or not, and upon return, anything broken wouldn't seem too strange (since it was already returned once), I decided to take her out for some fun before making my final verdict. Underclocking So, I've seen a bunch of various significant and insignificant results from underclocking this genre of AMD chip. The biggest gains were on the dm2's MV-40 chip, which is a single core. People were seeing gains in the neighborhood of 30 minutes if they ran it "speedstep'd" down to 800mhz and undervolted. I'm not that guy...I can't be happy unless I'm going fast, but I figured I'd give undervolting a shot to see if I couldn't hit an official 6 hours. Unfortunately, I couldn't undervolt for squat. Undervolted for .075 gain, and it wasn't really even noticeable to pay off for the potential stability issues.............
The CPU noise(high pitch hissing/buzzing/whining) especially when the CPU is in idle status bothered me. I tried the little software RMclock, It reduced the noise but did not eliminated it. I had to return 3 HP dv5t laptops because of this flaw. After a lot of research, I realized this problem happens more or less on almost all laptops of different brands using all kinds of CPUs. It's just a matter of level of tolerance. Some noises are not audible except you pressed your ear again the CPU area and listen very hard to tell it from the fan noise. I got an HP dv7t recently and loved it, but this CPU noises bothers me again, what is different from previous situations is that the CPU noises does not become audible until you plug in any USB devices, once the USB device is unplugged the noise just become much less audible.
As I took my Dell Studio 1555 apart to upgrade the cpu (not a job for the feint hearted!) I took some photo's of the mainboard and HS/Fan. If any of you have noticed high temps in HWMonitor on one of the ACPI I have tracked it down to be related to the GPU. Well when you look at the Heatsink you will see why!

Is my computer overheating? I have an HP DV9500t with an Intel T7700 Core2 Duo @ 2.4Ghz, nvidia GeForce 8600M, and two 7200rpm 120 Gig Hard Disks. While my computer is idling just sitting there on the desktop my temperatures are as follows: CPU0: 45C CPU1: 50C GPU: 70C HD0: 61C HD1: N/A (no sensor but probably same as HD0) I know i've got a lot of equipment in my 17" notebook but still it seems to be running hot. I was wondering if this is the norm for similar configurations? I know about the overheating battery recall and my laptop battery was not one of the ones affected. I also know about problems with the solder on nvidia cards. i havent had any display or stability issues. the only symptom i have is hotcrotch.
I am hoping to upgrade the above notebook to 802.11N but I am having trouble finding information on what internal cards will work for it. It is an AMD Athlon X2 sytem wiyh an Nvidia nforce chipset running Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit. The card it uses currently ( an 802.11B/G) is an Atheros 5007 based card (part #459339-003). HP/Compaq does make a Atheros 5009 based 802.11N card (part# 482260-001) but it is in short supply and those place that do have it are prices as well as no way to verify it would work with this model as HP customer care would not give a part number via e-mail and directed me to their 800 number to place an order(). I also have heard some issues with the 5009 based cards . I have been looking at an Intel 4965AGN and a Broadcom BCM94322MC but no way to verify it would work with my computer. One seller on E-bal says the Intel unit will not work with HP/Compaq computers but in google searches I have found some HP use this Intel card/chipset in their WLAN card
