HP/Compaq :: Cleaning Out The Fan On The Dv5t

Jan 27, 2009

I wanted to clean the fan of my laptop by using the air compressor periodically so that dust wouldn't build up. Is there a recommended way to do it? Does the fan suck from the bottom and blow out the back and side? I was planning to blow the air compressor into the bottom side where i believe the fan is sucking air. Is it ok to do this while the laptop is on or should I turn it off?

HP/Compaq :: Cleaning HDX16 Fan

Aug 10, 2009

The fan won't stop spinning at full speed.

GPU Temp: 48C
Core 1: 41C
Core 2: 42C
The humidity is 62%
City Temp: 28-30C

I've had this laptop for a few months, the fan's all dusty 'cause my apartment's dusty and I need to know if there's a video or another post that tells you how to take apart some sort of HDX16 or 18.

HP/Compaq :: DV6 QuadCooling System Cleaning

Dec 1, 2009

I have only had my dv6 a week, but i like to keep my notebooks running as cool as possible.

As far as i can see there is no way of accessing the fan, without taking the notebook to bits , there is no air intake above the fan like other notebooks , only 2 vents where you can see parts of the cooling system.

Now if i blow compressed air into these vents will the dust not just be blow all over the inside of the notebook, or will it just come out of the other vent.

Also i have read that you should secure the fan from running as not to damage it, but this is not possible without taking the notebook apart.

I can remove the hdd and memory covers without any problems, but i dont think this will give me access to the fan/cooling system.

HP/Compaq :: ( Presario CQ60) Cleaning

Nov 1, 2009

My little brother owns this notebook and it get rather hot when used.

It has a Intel Celeron 575 running at 2,00 GHz and a Intel GMA 4500mhd on a Intel GL40 mainboard.
It reports that it runs at 60c when idle, but it feels very hot when in use.

Even my own system runs cooler and it includes a ATI Mobility X1600 that can get a little toasty when in use.

HP/Compaq :: Fan On The DV5t

Jan 19, 2009

Is the fan meant to blow air of the back vent on the bottom of the DV5t?

Air blows out of the side vent but very little air blows out the back vent even when gaming. Im worried the vent is blocked.

Im concerned because the CPU reaches 85c when playing games, which seems a bit high for a CPU in my opinion.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5T Getting Hot

Apr 27, 2009

I am getting quite scared about my hp dv5t its getting really hot. The cpu is always at 50-mostly around 65 degrees doing normal work. I keep it on a targus cooler sometimes, but when im on campus I can only use the bare desk. I have undervolted the computer and the gpu is fine always maxing out at around 60 degrees and the harddrive is always at like 40. How do I keep this cpu from getting so high? It makes the computer really hot. Anything like undervolting, or anything free would be a + point.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t- Always Runs Hot

Jan 17, 2009

so i've got a dv5t. i have the notebook raised up 6 inches in the back while on a desk, and i've also got it undervolted (down to 1.0250V on the 9x actually) and this machine always runs hot. hotter while in games (which makes sense.) but even while just browsing the net, it gets hot.

HP/Compaq :: Burning CDs With Dv5t

Oct 13, 2009

I am trying to burn a few CDs for my girlfriend and I am coming across a few problems.

I have tried burning with Zune software, WMP and a free burner called CDBurnerXP.

Sometimes the CDs will burn fine all the way through, and other times after half way it stops and I get error messages. This has happened with all the programs I have listed.

The error is something along the lines of saying to check if the drive is connected properly or possible driver issues. Can someone direct me to the latest driver for the CD drive?

Anyone else encounter any similar problems when trying to burn CDs?

Forgot to mention this is also happening on my girlfriends laptop, which is also a dv5t...

HP/Compaq :: DV5T Bsods

Mar 5, 2009

I've gotten my dv5t since august of 08. Early this year, i did a clean install and after that, I have been getting the same bsod when i play GTA IV and some other games. The codes that I were

0x000001, 0x000000000000001, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFFA600005E5180, and 0x0000000000000001

I'm thinking its heat related but this never happened before I did a clean install.

Specs:
T9400
9600M GT
3GB ram

I also undervolted it and have an antec cooler. thanks.

Without undervolting, i reached 91 degrees Celsius for cpu and 86 for gpu. That seems pretty high for me..

Now I recieved this after playing LFS.

HP/Compaq :: Why Is My Laptop So Hot- Hp Dv5t

May 14, 2009

hp dv5t - about 8 months old

P8600
3gb ram
512mb 9600 GT
240gb 7200rpm
win xp pro sp3

this picture is WITH a small undervolt and WITH antec cooling fan

ignore that min, probably a glitch

atm the only real "load" i have running is firefox, digsby (IM client), and itunes. only real cpu usage (through task manager) is firefox. when i exit everything and have nothing running, it use to idle at around 70C but after undervolt i can get it to around 60C

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5t CPU Is Too Hot- Have Undervolted

May 19, 2009

my HP dv5t cpu is just way too hot. I keep pretty good care of my laptop and there is not really dust inside but if I just watch a youtube video my temperatures can easily go up to 65C even with a 1.875 volt to 1.075 undervolt. I have a cooler as well, and the temperatures still are just way too hot. If i play a game like tf2 my cpu easily goes to 75C while the GPU and HDD stay well within acceptable and even cool temperatures. I don't really know why the cpu is so hot compared to everything else. My friend has suggested it might be thermal paste not being applied correctly and I was looking for a second diagnoses. Should i be sending the laptop into HP? And if so what do I call / what do i tell them for the best/fastest service? Should I try to get some Arctic silver and apply thermal paste myself? My friend says he can do it easy enough but he would like a disassembly guide on how to get to the cpu and remove the heatsink.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Overheating

Feb 25, 2009

When i first bought it brand new from best buy right after christmas i could run it all the time and i would notice it would get hot but i never had issues with it until january when it overheated for the first time.

Right after that i went to best buy and bought a USB fan to put underneath it and it seemed to solve the problem. It would be cool to the touch. Until once again... it overheated and kept getting worse and worse.

Now i am to the point where i have to use the fan underneath it, have a small room fan blowing on it, and rob it of performance by turning it to power saver mode which is really frusterating. I also updated the BIOS to make the internal fan run faster which seemed to help a little.

Just a note, i use CoreTemp to monitor the CPU temp with the above setup, it reads 71 degrees Celsius right now.

I just switched it to high performance and it instantly jumped up to 85 degrees and is climbing... now its 88 even with all theese fans on it. I have firefox open, windows live messenger and windows media player running. Now its 92. Im gonna unplug it and turn it to powersaver.. (95 degrees and dropping...)

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv5t External Mic

Oct 11, 2009

if the microphone jack takes stereo input? The integrated microphone is stereo, so I'm guessing the sound card will take stereo input, but I don't have a stereo mic to test.

If the mic jack is stereo, does anyone know where I can get a converter that would basically mix two mono mics into stereo? To be more clear, I have two singstar microphones and it came with a usb converter that would place each mic on separate channels. However, the input isn't as good as if I directly plug the microphone into the mic jack. Thus, I need something that is like that usb converter, but instead plugs into the microphone jack instead of the USB port. I hope that was clear enough. I don't need the computer to recognize two microphones.
