Having problems with your HP Pavilion DV6500T Notebook ?

HP Pavilion DV6500 - The fan makes too much noise!

\015 I bought the laptop in september/october 2007, and now, in the last few months, the fan has began to make a loud noise. When this happened on my old laptop, I opened it up and cleaned the fan. The problem now is that I don't know how to open it up on this PC!Why is the fan working? And how do I open up so I can clean the fan?\015

Answers :

HP deliberately design their laptops to breakdown just after the warranty ... my HP-authorized repair shop told me that there is no way to clean everywhere inside the unit, without complex, nearly complete dismantling.

But I bought another Pavilion!  But I learnt by smashing apart my first Pavvy.  There is only one cooling fan.  

Remove the battery.  Put a narrow plastic stick thru the intake slot, to stop the fan spinning.  Then use a hair dryer, without heat, to push air into every air hole you can find.  Repeat with a low-power vacuum cleaner.  

After 4 years, sell it, smash it or get rid of it.

If at all possible " do not try and clean the fan yourself " you will kill the m/board - take it to an auth Hp serice agent and get a new CPU heatsink assy & fan unit fitted. I work on Hp units all the time and I am always very carefull of the electrostatic conditions. Try and do it yourself and it will prove expensive. If you have warranty log a service call for a replacement heatsink
