Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook ?

Slow, over heating, fan runs non stop

\015 My laptop is running very slow, it can be unresponsive, the fan wont stop blowing, and it seems to have an over heating issue... what do I do? Is this a virus?\015

Answers :

Are you running any games or CPU-intensive applications that run 24/7?
\015\012
\015\0121) I suggest you first download CPUID's Hardware Monitor from here:
\015\012http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php
\015\012Install and run. It will you the temperature of your CPU (including all cores, if you have a multi-core CPU).
\015\012CPU temp should not be higher than 80-85 C when running CPU-intensive applications and about 50 C when idle
\015\012
\015\0122) Also, you may want to check if the fan is dirty. To do this, turn your laptop OFF and unplug the AC charger. Remove the bottom cover and locate the fan. Blow compressed air from a compressed air can. Be sure to remove all dust and lint. Replace the bottom cover and plug the AC charger back. Restart the laptop.
\015\012
\015\0123) After your laptop restarts and loads Windows, open the "Task Manager" by pressing CONTROL-ALT-DELETE and choosing "Task Manager" from the menu. Then, click on the tab labeled "PROCESSES" and click TWICE on the column labeled "CPU". The application running with a "99" or so under CPU column should be the "System Idle Process". If not, please report back the applications you have on the top of the "Image Name" column.

\015\012Please, report back so that I can be of further assistance if needed
