Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook ?

My hp pavilion dv4000 is running hot. takes

\015 My hp pavilion dv4000 is running hot. takes forever for the fan to cool it off. fan runs fine. checked for dust or lint in the fan area none. have also been running it elevated about one-half inch off of the table.\015\012\015\012does the intel centrino processor go bad? does the adhesive between the heat sink and the processor break down? does the fan speed slow down as it wears? is this just a problem with this model.\015\012\015\012how long will it take to replace the fan-heat sink unit?\015\012\015\012thanks\015

Answers :

I have the same laptop, it used to get too hot after a few hours and switch off by itself, a few months later it started to switch off after 5 minutes of switching it on.. i went to a computer company and they fixed the problem, I told them that the fan had some dust stuck. Anyways, they called me the next day to tell me that its fixed, they cleaned the fan and they replaced a piece that has to do with cooling (sorry, i dont have that much of an experience with computers!).

\015\012got any idea what to do?
\015\012thanx!
Hi
\015\012
\015\012Thank you for your query
\015\012
\015\012With laptops there is hot and there is hot, the normal type of hot is due to general use and should be expected, especially as people who put on their laps and dont allow the heat to escape
\015\012
\015\012However there is a different hot which is very hot to the feel and occasionally there is a burning smell coming from it. if you are experiencing this problem then please do the following
\015\012
\015\0121) Switch on laptop
\015\0122) Press F2, F12 or ec key to enter BIOS setup
\015\0123) Once in bios look thorugh the menu'suntil you come up with a cpu temp option
\015\0124) Leave the laptop runing on this if the temp increases very wuickly and goes above approx 50 degrees (celsius) then your CPU is overheating and is probably the heatsink that needs replacing
\015\012
\015\012If it is the heatsink, i would not recommend that you replace yourself as you will need to go down to motherboard level
\015\012
\015\012if it doesnt then it is normal operation for your laptop
