I have an HP Pavilion g7-1368dx laptop with Windows 7 that I purchased in June 2012, so it's out of warranty.
A couple weeks ago it had a thermal shutdown one time during use. After cooling down, the laptop functioned fine for a few uses, but then it started giving the startup warning message, "The system has detected that a cooling fan is not operating correctly," with additional indication about potential damage if the computer is operated in that condition.
I ordered a new fan and replaced it, and I cleaned the fan grill in the process (though it wasn't incredibly dirty), but I still get the same fan error message. I went to HP's website and saw the suggestion to do a "hard reset," so I did that, but the problem still persists.
I saw another suggestion of trying a BIOS update, but I figured that wouldn't be advisable since the fan isn't working. Would going through with the BIOS update attempt anyway?
My laptop HP pavilion G6 1330ee Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit shows the following message: The system has detected that a cooling fan is not operating correctly. Continued operation is not recommended and may cause unpredictable behaviour that could result in random shutdown, data loss or possible system damage. The system will shutdown in 15 seconds. To prevent shutdown and continue operation please press the enter key now. System Fan (90B) Enter-Continue startup For more information, please visit: [URL]
I upgraded my laptop from home basic 64 bit to ultimate 64-bit then I reinstalled the windows 7 ultimate 64-bit because i want a clean windows 7 ( first upgrade was from Windows Upgrade the second one from the internet ).I always clean my laptop from dust and it never get overheated because I use cooling pad with 3 fans. I gave my friend to check my laptop he works in pc's he said that my laptop looks like new and i don't have a fan problem he suggest to Re-Install windows 7 from HP ( that came with hp products ) or do i hard rest to my hardware. My warranty fishined a month ago, and I take care of my laptop very well. I know my laptop will not get any damaged because i use cooling pads.
Windows + BIOS + HP Products + Drivers all of them updated to the latest update
Okay, so. I have an HP Pavilion g6-1145sg. It was working properly all morning, and then I put it to sleep temporarily (about ten to twenty minutes). When I went to turn it on, the screen was black and said something along the lines of "the system has detected that a cooling fan is not operating correctly. Continued operation would not be recommended at this time... may cause unpredictable behaviour that could result in random shut down, data loss or possible system damage."
Then after a few seconds it shuts off completely. There is an option to continue with system resume, and I clicked it once, but it didn't go all the way through to letting me use my laptop properly (I got to my desktop background and it shut down).
I have had it since last August, and it has worked somewhat alright through until today. Of course, the system lags occasionally, but nothing serious, mostly just aggravating.
I just got my DV3T. I noticed that the cooling pad I currently have will not work with this laptop since it sucks air from under the laptop, while the DV3T sucks the air from under the laptop and blows it out the side.
So are there any cooling pads that work well with the DV3T? Ones that blow air from the bottom to the top?
I checked out the service manual, to read up on disassembly. Thinking about opening my notebook up and removing the heat pads and replacing them with copper shims to reduce heat. that is, unless someone can find a way to downclock the GPU for cooling purposes... But I'd like to get it cooler so the fan won't have to run all the time.
The DV5T is one of two notebooks that I'm considering and I have a question related to the heat while gaming. Many have recommended a cooling pad, and many also suggest simply raising the notebook .5-1" in the back. With the natural lift of the 12 cell battery, would the cooling pad still be necessary for long gaming runs? I don't want to pay the extra $20 for the 12 cell only for minimal cooling gains and still needing to buy a cooling pad. Or is it cooling pads are highly recommending for all laptops when gaming?
I am looking at cooling pad for my 1340. Most of them have the fan in the center (like the Belkin, with great reviews) but my laptop gets hot at the very top left above the "studioXPS" logo and power button.
To me, this means I need a 3 fan-cooler with fans at the top corners as well as the center
Since my laptop gets quite hot and my nvidia 8 serie is dying slowy I was thinking, since I only use my laptop as a dekstop replacement anyway, of unscrewing the bottom of my laptop so the laptopcooler would have more effect.
My question is: is this a good idea? or will my computer become polluted with dust which will make my hardware components defect?
I want to buy a cooling pad for an XPS M1710 I just ordered but need some advice first. Some cooling pads out there blow air up to the bottom of the laptop, and others draw air from the bottom of the laptop and exhaust the hot air to the back or sides. Can somebody tell me whether the bottom of the M1710 draws cool air in, or blows hot air out? If the M1710 draws air in, then I will get a cooling pad that blows cool air to the bottom. If the bottom of the M1710 blows out hot air, then I will get a cooling pad that draws the hot air out
I have ordered Dell S XPS16 with the below configuration:
Intel Core 2 Duo T9550(2.66GHz/1066Mhz FSB/6M L2 Cache) Obsidian Black High Gloss Finish with Leather XPS 1640 4GB, DDR3, 1067 MHz 2 Dimm
16.0 inch Wide Screen 16:9 1080p FullHD RGBLED LCD W/2.0 MP ATI Mobility RADEON M96XT (this is HD 4670 right??) - 1GB 500GB 7200RPM Free Fall SensorSeagate Hard Drive Microsoft Windows Vista SP1 Ultimate 64-bit
BluRay Combo Drive Intel WiFi Link 5300 802.11AGN Half Mini Card 56 WHr 6-cell (Will order 9 cell battery later with the 100$ gift card ) Dell Wireless 370 Bluetooth Internal (2.0+Enhanced Data Rate)
I plan to use the laptop mainly for Internet browsing, watching blu ray movies, some gaming. I do not plan to do any hard core gaming (some strategy and racing games like AOE, Ceaser, NFS etc.).
Please let me know what all from the below do I need to do for the heat problem (if any):
1. Undervolting CPU
2. Get Cooling Pad (I currently have Antec, but if needed I can buy Zalman NC2000)
i've been keeping an eye on temps and was wondering which is the best bios for cooling.
at the moment my fans don't really kick in until the gpu reaches 70c. The moment the fan starts (not super loud like when you play games but louder than the normal hum) the temp drops back to 58ish very quickly (talking seconds). However, in my mind, it makes more sense to keep temps as stable as possible.
Without fans running (or at least without me noticing them running), my temps normally hang around high 50's low 60's on the gpu. However, if i am doing lots of stuff the temps slowly rise to high 60's before the fan turns on and brings it back to 58-63. I think if fans were on more often i could easily have temps in the low 50's pretty much all the time..
I think I have bios 13 at the mo.. that or 12. is there anyway to increase fan usage?
i have seen and read about cooling dock stations for the i9300 that involve removing the PCMCIA slot insert. i am curious if my notebook would benefit from leaving this slot insert out even without a cooling dock? would the extra ventilation be of any value? i am currently uninterested in buying a cooling dock.
Well my wife and I picked up an Acer 6920G. So far we like it. She wants to use it sometimes at night in bed to play WoW so I was looking for a good cooling pad for it. So what are some good ones out there?
I've owned a D630 for about a year now and have noticed that the bottom of the laptop can get very hot. My dad owned the same model for a couple years and he had multiple hard drive failures. His hypothesis was that the computer might have been overheating and burned out the hard drive.
However, in doing a little research, I heard it's not so much that the computer overheats as it is that the metal frame conducts heat very easily. So while the outside might be hot, the inside isn't at a temperature that's damaging to the parts.
Any experiences with this? Any help would be appreciated. If overheating is a common problem, I'll probably shell out the money for a cooling mat. If it's not a problem, then that's money saved.!
I am waiting for my XPS to come and I want to know what is the best cooling device I can get on it. The reason I mentioned "safest" is because one person I know said sometimes it can be harmful to the laptop(I have no idea how true that is).
