Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook ?

HP desktop keeps shutting down unexpectedly.......

\015 I have a HP Desktop and whenever I do anything that puts a load on the processor the fan kicks on and after a few minutes the pc shuts down. It's getting annoying! My last pc did the same thing. Can't figure it out. Vac out the dust doesn't help. My pc is just under two years old. Is this something that is fan related or is it more of a costly fix? I'm wondering if this is a HP problem? Can anyone help?\015

Answers :

\011I have seen on every hp and computer forum the exact problem and the problem is there is a defect in the fans sensor and you just cant fix it. it is under the cpu and you would have to get the motherboard replaced in order to fix it.\015\012

\015\012\011I suggest you go to Amazon.com and buy an external fan for around $20. I bought the Antec fan for my hp pavilion dv1000 and now it works perfectly, the laptop is just slightly less portable.

It is a general problem for most laptops.
\015\012
\015\012A vac is a start but is only really a small help.
\015\012
\015\012The correct way is to dismantle it for cleaning, but I doubt you want to go as far as that.
\015\012
\015\012You next best option is to use a can of compressed air that is designed for computer cleaning. only do this with the laptop OFF and preferably with some form of safety glasses and outside. Take the spray and make sure the nozzle is on. blow through ALL the ventilation holes and cooling slots.
\015\012DO NOT put the nozzle inside any of those holes and don't be afraid to use most of the can doing it. You will probably find much more dust that a vac ever did.
\015\012
\015\012Now you have got that far toy will probably find it goes for a lot more before it kicks the fan in. To keep it that way NEVER use it on a soft surface that could block any of the vents eg bed, carpet, soft furniture, pillows & cushions etc. DO buy a GOOD laptop cooler with at least three fans.
\015\012If possible get one that has is own psu besides being able to run from your USB port. The same goes for coolers DO NOT use the on soft surfaces.
\015\012I watch TV and see kids on the bed playing with the laptop and wanna scream.
\015\012
\015\012If you ever have to use it on your lap then at least open your legs slightly to allow air to circulate (that sounds bad I know but its not meant to be)
