Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook ?

Notebook shuts off after a varied period of time.

\015 My notebook (HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook) began to shut itself off after a short period of time, usually around ten to fifteen minutes of use. It would not allow an immediate restart but after a few moments, (30-60 seconds) i could turn it on again, but it would die out a few minutes after. I drew the conclusion that it was a cooling problem however odd circumstances apply. I installed everest ultimate edition and monitored my computer temperatures and they aren't anything drastic. Checking in at 42C in the CPU and a maximum of 50C in the MCP and still running fine. Before I did this however I noticed that it would run longer, (indefinitely) if I ran it on the Power Saver power plan vs. the balanced HP recommended plan which was getting knocked out in 20min or so. With the temperature not being drastic and the fan still blowing warm air it doesn't seem to me like this is in fact a cooling issue. Could there possibly be a problem with a power regulator or something of that sort that could cause a shut down with higher power consumption? I would appreciate if anyone could give me some advice on how to handle this. Yes, it is under warranty, so if I have to I can send it in I can but, I'd rather look for alternative solutions first.\015

Answers :

I would still look at the cooling fins on the heatsink, and for dust accumulation generally, unless the PC is nearly new. On the HP support website you can download an illustrated how-to guide. On mine, the fans used to run almost constantly until I cleaned a 1/4 inch layer of dust out of the heatsink fins. Good Luck.
It could be the graphix processor overheating, or a virus, and yes, it could be some sort of voltage regulation circuitry also.
