HP/Compaq :: Exhaust Vent Placement For Workstations

Apr 2, 2009

why is it that most workstation laptops I find have exhaust vents placed on the left side? Dell and HP place all their workstaion vents on the left yet their consumer laptops all have rear vent placement. Is there a practical reason for this that I'm missing? I dont really like it when someone sitting next to me has a side vent blowing at my hand(when using a mouse).

Dell Latitude E4310 :: Exhaust Is Always Blowing Hot Air?

Jun 21, 2010

I have a 1 week old Latitude E4310 and the exhaust is always blowing hot air.  I notice that the disk activity light always blinks even though the system is idle, or is it?  Even though I have configured the advanced power to turn off HDD after 20 minutes (10 minutes when on battery), it seems that the HDD does not turn off at all because it is being accessed by something!  What is it?  Do you have an E4310?  Is it hot?

Apple :: Wheres My MacBook Pros Exhaust Vents

Apr 25, 2009

I've noticed unlike most laptops ( like my old Dell & my GF's Dell ) my Mac Book Pro 15 seems to have no obvious area for the heat to exscape...

I have noticed some heat above the keyboard where the screen hinge is, but dont see any vents...

I was gonna buy a lap top cooler for my GF's laptop & thought about getting self one but wonder if it would really do anything for my MBP15?

Dell :: XPS 1640/1645/1647 Heat Vent

Feb 17, 2010

So yes I have no cred and I am relatively new but I think we can all agree the direction of the heat vent on the XPS 16XX series needs to be changed to face downwards at least, so that the heat isn't dicipated directly onto the screen!

There doesn't seem anywhere available to add a secondary vent, so at least the primary vent needs to be improved.

I will send this to Dell_Bill_B as he requested in the throttling forum, and he said he would take this issue up at the next conference call!

Dell :: Studio XPS 13Opening Screen Blocks The Air Vent?

Apr 23, 2009

I have heard of the phenomenon at simply opening the screen will block the primary air vent at the back, making the whole system run extremely hot.
If thats the case, thats stupid design

This isnt too much of a problem because i dont use laptops on my lap. If i had it my way then i would ban the word laptop and use notebooks

Questions:
1. It is unbearably hot? Even only with the standard GPU?
2. Does opening the screen (comfortable 90 degrees) block the vent
2. Are there any Nvidia graphics related GPU mess ups reported? (lines on screen .....

Acer :: 5738G Bottom Vent Built Closed

May 5, 2010

I bought my Acer Aspire 5738G laptop last november and this month I experienced for the first time my laptop shutting down by itself while playing cs-source.

The laptop is quite hot and upon searching the net found out that it's most likely due to overheating.

My question is about the ventilation at the bottom of 5738G.

Is it supposedly closed? No holes/slots? Cause I think it's the cause of overheating.

The system doesn't have a way to take-in air

It's like it was designed to be a bottom vent for air intake but then forgot to make holes in it.

I also searched for it's manual and confirmed that it is a ventilation slot.

It even says there "do not cover or obstruct the opening of the fan".

(I've got a screen shot attached. I'm talking about part 6. That part of my laptop doesn't have holes/slots but clearly there should be according to the manual.

HP/Compaq :: How To OC This CPU

Oct 21, 2009

Does anyone have a good way to OC this laptop other than using ClockGen? I am basically wondering if there is a BIOS option. I know there are some OC guides out there, but this laptop is almost 3 years old, and as far as I can tell does not have an option in the BIOS. Also, my proc is the T2600, not the one is this review, but other than that exactly the same. I am looking to play around with this because it is old and I dont care too much if I fry it since my new hotness is on the way.

HP/Compaq :: Looking For New OS

Jun 30, 2009

Ive just about had it with Vista on my laptop and want to try a new OS before I junk this thing. Is anyone running Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z AMD 64 bit laptop? The machine is about a year old and I have 4gb of RAM and the thing is a dog. Ive used Ubuntu in the past on Dell laptops and its a pain to get everything running wireless drivers, flash, etc. Win7 being a RC may or may not have everything up to speed on for my machine.

So, if you have Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z please give me a shout, good or bad.

Feb 16, 2009

Can't really see much difference in these models....looking at Best Buy

Other than 17 vs 16 inch screen are their any benefits to build quality from 1 to the other?

I will be travelling so I would prefer the lesser HDX 16 incher but build quality is a concern

I travel by plane, train, bus every weekend so it needs to be able to handle a little beating

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv2

Jul 14, 2009

I'm am deciding whether to buy this laptop for school use. It has a great size, stylish, and decent specs for a laptop that is so lightweight. The only turn off is that it was made for entertainment, but should this laptop do well for word processing, spreadsheets, and web surfing?

Would the 9 cell battery last for more than 5-6 hours? My budget is also under 700$ but it can stretch a little.

HP/Compaq :: DV2 Or DV3

Jul 29, 2009

I'm heading off to school, and these stylish, affordable notebooks have caught my eyes. The only problem is that I only get 2-3 hours of battery life on these notebooks although I can buy an extra battery. What I"m mainly doing is word processing, spreadsheets, iTunes, and web browsing but not all at the same time.

Here are my main questions and concerns:

Do these notebooks have good build quality?Is there any other way to charge the battery without having it in the notebook?Do they get hot?

I may have more questions to ask later.

I am buying this notebook in Canada.

Seeing that the battery tests I've seen on some reviews, they are surfing the internet with Wi-Fi on. I will not be, I'll usually be word processing. Should it last maybe 3 hours?

How long does the 9 cell last on the DV3?

HP/Compaq :: DV7

Oct 25, 2009

I own a DV7-1038CA, I actually decided to buy it after reading what people said about the DV7s on this forum. Unfortunately I have a problem .

I had opened up my DV7 to clean out the fan ( ****load of dust in there) and took the whole laptop apart. I put it back together and it worked perfectly fine for about 10 hours. The laptop worked great until I dropped it down on my table at a height of about 1 1/2 inches, not a significant height but the screen immediately turned white and the laptop shut off completely. It would not turn on at all, the power light would blink for less than a second and turn off and then I'd have to wait 30 seconds before I could get it to blink again.

I then took the laptop apart again and this time I checked if everything was plugged in properly. I decided to leave the unnecessary covers off so I could turn it on without having to screw it all back on, it turned for about 3 seconds....before I noticed the display cable to my screen was on the heat sink and had caught fire. I immediately turned it off but the damage had already been done, the fire had burnt through the wiring on the inside of the cable rendering my screen useless ( whenever it was plugged the charging light on the side of the laptop would turn off). At this point the laptop was turning on but would turn off after about 5 seconds (probably due to the fact that there was no screen) During this little fiasco I had ripped off the ZIF cable that connects the power button board to the Motherboard. So now I had no way to turn my laptop on, I ordered a new screen and a new power button board.......

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16, HDX 18

Oct 3, 2009

Not in a race on which is better mind you, since these two are next-of-kin. But I mean which parts will fit both? I've been looking for some upgrade parts to the HDX 18, but all I seem to find are parts rated for the HDX 16. So, save the obvious screen size difference, just how comparable are these two in parts?

The keyboards look identical; and the extended battery I found lists a match for the HDX 16 but not the HDX 18. Would there be a size difference?
