HP/Compaq :: Presario F756NR Easily Overheating

Nov 30, 2009

My laptop has a tendency to have it's fan going like an airplane all the time. Simple flash games can raise my core temperature through the roof. It will often (every couple of days) it likes to heat up so much that it shuts down, even while just browsing on the internet. I've read some things online and this seems to be a fairly common problem in the F700 series. I've had this laptop for about a year and I think that cleaning is overdue. Does anyone have a tutorial for opening up a laptop of close to the same model?

Sony :: Fan Easily Accessible

Jul 23, 2009

The only thing that's stopping me from buying one is access to the fan. I live in a very dusty place and I clean my Asus fan every 2 or 3 months to keep it clean. So how easy is it to get to the fan of Sony laptops? I realize it won't be as easy as an Asus, I've also tried opening Lenovo laptops where you have to detach the palmrest and the lift the keyboard which is a little annoying but still fine. My worst nightmare is my friends Fujitsu where I can't seem to open at all. I'm looking at the SR or the CS models atm.

Apple :: Does The Newer White Macbooks Discolor - Are They Easily Scratched

Jan 1, 2009

I really want to buy a black one as I prefer a matte finish and it wouldn't discolor, but I want it new and I cannot find any here in Canada, so I will have to buy a white one. This is going to be my very first mac and to me it's a lot of money... I hope it will be worth it (I'm a little nervous about the switch) .

HP/Compaq :: Overheating HP

Feb 23, 2010

I have sent my laptop off 3 times to HP to have it repaired and its just came back and is running at 197.6 degrees when playing 720p videos. It got hot enough to char a piece of paper that was sitting next to it on my desk, almost starting a fire if I wasn't there.

The kicker is this laptop was given to me by hp a year and a half ago as a replacement for another overheating laptop. I am now told they don't replace laptops. So I cant call up my credit card company and say I received a lemon, or go back to the store and say you sold me a lemon, as it was given to me by HP.

The case managers have been EXTREMELY rude. Essentially calling me stupid and that im not qualified to diagnose the computer, even though Im a computer technician by trade and have been building computers since I was 9 years old.

IS my only options small claims court? is there anyway to get ahold of anyone higher than their case managers? they claim there isnt. Is there a way to get ahold of the board or ceo?

HP/Compaq :: Dv5 And Overheating

May 26, 2010

The problem:

as many dv5 owners know, this HP series has a little problem with overheating.

The laptop has a small aperture for air circulation just below the exhaust vent: the fan takes fresh air from the aperture and then push out warm air.

Many people noted that the aperture is too small but its position is also problematic because when you put the laptop on a desk, the air stream is reduced so much that the heat cannot be dissipated correctly. This leads to very high temperatures under high loads that sometimes causes the laptop to shutdown itself to prevent damage.

Now one solution is to raise the laptop a bit, to allow better cooling.

My findings:

Dissecting my laptop I found a very interesting thing.

In the upper left corner of the laptop there's the fan that cools down the whole thing.

The fan is very near to the upper left corner of the keyboard too, and the notebook chassis has a hole to let the fan aspire more air from the upside.

You may say that's good, the fan is getting fresh air from the keyboard too, right?

Wrong. The keyboard on its back has a thin plastic coverage that prevents the air flow!

The solution:

So, armed wih a cutter, I delicately made a cut on this plastic coverage film near the upper left angle and then I removed the cutted piece from the back of the keyboard (there are some glue strips that fix it for better adherence).

To be precise, when I say "upper left angle" I suppose you have your keyboard in front of you (near the ESC key to be pratical). Since you need to cut the *rear* coverage plastic, it becomes the upper right angle. Just always take the ESC key as a placeholder!

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16 Overheating

Feb 1, 2009

I have recently purchased the HDx 16.

I installed 'Speedfan' to monitor the cpu and gpu temps..

Idle temps for the gpu are around the 62-65 C mark which to me seems too much given that I'm not doing any graphic intensive work.

If I set the fans to turn on permanently in bios settings then idle temp goes down to 50C .

I havent done any gaming yet so cant comment on intensive use temps.

Can anyone else share their thoughts on this since I get the feeling that my laptop is overheating.

HP/Compaq :: Overheating HDX16

Jan 10, 2009

I was looking into buying this laptop but read on the forums that there have been quite a few complaints of overheating. I plan to game a lot with the laptop and so will probably be pushing the laptop. Is it true that the cooling system is quite inefficient? Is it only for games and such, or even for movies, web browsing etc. Was going to go for a Samsung with similar spec but smaller screen cos it has really good cooling.

HP/Compaq :: Is MyDV9500t Overheating- CPU 50C GPU 70C

May 17, 2009

Is my computer overheating? I have an HP DV9500t with an Intel T7700 Core2 Duo @ 2.4Ghz, nvidia GeForce 8600M, and two 7200rpm 120 Gig Hard Disks.

While my computer is idling just sitting there on the desktop my temperatures are as follows:

CPU0: 45C
CPU1: 50C
GPU: 70C
HD0: 61C
HD1: N/A (no sensor but probably same as HD0)

I know i've got a lot of equipment in my 17" notebook but still it seems to be running hot. I was wondering if this is the norm for similar configurations? I know about the overheating battery recall and my laptop battery was not one of the ones affected. I also know about problems with the solder on nvidia cards. i havent had any display or stability issues. the only symptom i have is hotcrotch.

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 :: Overheating Dv7t

Feb 13, 2009

I'm having some issues with my dv7t.

Brief specs:
nVidia 9600M GT
4gb OCZ RAM (I installed this)
2x 7200RPM HD's
Integrated TV Tuner

And the thing gets hot when I watch over-the-air HD.

CPUID Hardware Monitor data:
THRM 35*C Min / 90*C Max
Core0 20*C Min / 20*C Max (shows 70/70 now...)
Core2 21*C Min / 21*C Max (shows 70/70 now...)
GeForce 9600M GT
GPU 52*C Min / 106*C Max
HD1 35*C Min / 49*C Max
HD2 37*C Min / 54*C Max

It doesn't get this hot normally, just when I watch TV. I know that media center automatically records whatever you're watching, so I'm assuming that is heating up the proc and HD, but holy crap 106*C? It seems a little excessive. Where is the video card on these things so I can try and make sure that is always in open air.

HP/Compaq :: NewEnvy 15 Overheating

Mar 26, 2010

Ive just bought a HP Envy 15. I think it's first gen because its Graphic adapter is 4830. My problem is that when im playing or doing anything that needs the use of the full power of the pc, it shuts down... Ive been looking for a solution to this problem, trying to update bios and drivers, but bios software cant be downloaded right now. My bios version is F.06, and i saw that there are too many newer versions. U think this could be the problem? has anyone noticed the same trouble? Can somebody send me the flash bios utility with a version more up to date?

Processor is i7 720, dont know if its important...

HP/Compaq :: HP530 Overheating

Jan 23, 2010

successfully replaced the thermal paste on my HP8510p. It went completely smooth. And the core temperatures dropped for an enourmous 50C (the laptop was completely clogged with dust and to make it even worse the factory-applied thermal paste was a mess). Anyway, it's been idling at around 55C and it never ever goes past 65C (3D gaming and all).

I've just done this to a friend's notebook. The weird thing is, that it was filled with dust and idling at around 80-85C. I took it apart following this guide. After I removed all of the plastic and the dust and the fan and the heatsink, I used the ArctiClean set to clean the cores and the heatsink, applied a nice thin layer of ArcticSilver and put it all back together again, to find that it's still idling at 75-80C. I know that the CPU is a Intel Centrino Merom-2M (@1,60GHz) and that supposedly mobile CPUs run at higher temps... But this?

I took it apart again, redid everyhing, this time even more meticulously and still nothing. Whenever I do a CPU hungry task (compressing some random files with winrar for instance) the temps go all the way up to 84C...........

HP/Compaq :: HP DV 4 Overheating/Shutting Itself Off

Sep 8, 2009

I currently own a HP DV4 1275mx laptop. I have had it since April 2009. This is a product replacement for my DV2000 that had the bad nvidia chip and left this world. It only lasted 9 months.

Here are my issues (i do say they are eerily familiar)

Its freaking hot as a volcano. So hot that I can hardly use my touchpad mouse without it hurting my fingers. I thought I was just being paranoid when I first got it since my last one got hot and then out of nowhere just died. So, I downloaded speed fan a few months ago once it started to really worry me.

The temps range from at the lowest 65C and will get up to 105C. I called HP support right away (3 months ago) they ran BIOS updates and all of that and sent me on my merry way.

Well now it likes to just shut itself off (i'm assuming a fail safe so it doesn't blow up on me). It takes a good few minutes and at least 3 or 4 tries to get it to boot up all the way again. Called HP again, ran the same updates and some diagnostics that my computer couldn't even get through without overheating. They are having me send it in for repair...............

HP/Compaq :: Hp Tx1309au -overheating

Apr 16, 2009

I bought an HP tx1309au almost two years ago. A year ago I had it fixed for some problem, and when I got it back, I noticed that it was more prone to overheating and shutting down in the middle of being used. Usually the screen would just fade into black and then before you know it, the computer has shut down. In the last 3 days, this has happened, on average, 5 times a day. Just today it shut down for the 3rd time an hour ago. I've switched to the spare power cord provided, and while that solved the overheating problem, it still shut down unexpectedly.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6 AMD Version Overheating

Dec 17, 2009

I have a problem with my HP dv6 1299ea laptop. I bought in in August, and was very satisfied with my purchase until lately, when it has been overheating. I have noticed that the fan is running almost non-stop for a while now, but didn't care too much, since I have been playing games and so on. But recently the fan is now running non-stop even when it's idle, or I just browse.

Today I installed speedfan, and it shows core temperature on idle of around 70 degrees C. Sometimes it even goes above 80, and that is without any games or complicated applications running - just browsing. In Medieval II Total war it stays above 80 constantly. Now, when I'm writting it shows between 65-70 degrees C. I see that speedfan does not support my motherboard, since it only shows core, no GPU, HDD, and nothing about the fan speed. Is there any other software that might help me identify and solve the problem?

I know AMDs tend to overheat, compared to Intels, but this just seems too much. I did some research, and saw that it is a known problem for HPs. I ordered a laptop cooler (Titan TTC-G4TZ), but will get it in about a week.

HP/Compaq :: Presario 1500

Apr 18, 2010

i have a compaq presario 1500 with a pentium 4 running XP SP3 on it. I am having trouble with keeping it under a good heat, the fan is constantly running high! i know this needs a good clean but the screws to remove the back casing are so small for me to do this! any suggestions of how i can clean inside? or get to th fan through the top by the keyboard?

secondly it tends to crash every now and then, maybe when it overclocks on the cpu?? i am recently trying out a program called speedswitchXP which seems to be slowing it down to an extent! but not solving the issue.

thirdly and finally, my battery only holds charge for around 10 minutes before needing constant wall plugin! i constantly have it plugged into the wall, could this be a result to any of my problems?

HP/Compaq :: Presario Won't Boot

Dec 3, 2009

got a Presario V2000 that will not boot whatsoever.

Upon pressing the power button, the machine starts up and displays the standard "Windows could not start properly" screen. Every option I choose, from the three Safe mode options, to the Last Known Good Config, to Start Windows Normally will not work.

I choose an option and everything goes smoothly, the Windows XP splash screen pops up & stays there for a few seconds, then goes blanks for a slightly longer length of time before a blue screen pops up. I can't remember the first few numbers, but the rest I'm pretty sure is accurate:

(a series of letters/numbers is here) (Registry File Failure)

The registry cannot load the file
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, (something I cant remember), or not writable

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical assistance.

.....and it pretty much repeats over and over in a continuous cycle like this until I power it off.

What I'm wondering is where exactly the problem lies? On the Hard Drive--where the drive itself needs to be replaced or the OS just wiped and reinstalled fresh.......or is this indicative of a hardware failure...which would mean this lappy is pretty much dead?

HP/Compaq :: Presario V6305NR

On pressing start button, laptop starts, but blank screen comes. After every few seconds, it keeps on rebooting, but nothing happens.

I have tried pressing F10 and Esc button on startup, but nothing happens.

Moving finger over multimedia touch buttons causes them to beep.

Few times, it shows the BIOS, but does not detect the hard-drive.

Very rarely, everything works fine and OS boots and works fine (without any sign of problem).

I replaced RAMs, hard-drive and DVD Reader in other laptop and there they worked absolutely fine.

I even tried removing the battery, connecting external monitor, keyboard, but nothing worked.

BIOS version is F.3D.
When opened, CPU fan and heatsink were dustfree.

Product Specs: HP Presario V6305NR, 1.6 GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-50, 1024MB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm), NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (UMA)

HP/Compaq :: Presario V2000 AC

Apr 15, 2009

I have a Presario V2000.

After not using for about 1 week I turned it on so I could clean it from viruses.

Got the battery alert and then it shutdown meanwhile I was pluging the cord in (Targus AC cord with

blue light).

When I connected the AC to the power (not connected yet to the laptop) it "turned on" and still today

shows a blue light. But once I plug it to the laptop the blue light disappears after 3-5 seconds!

Not at the beginning nor the end of this process the laptop will turn on if I press the power button

for 'x' seconds. If I plug the cord, the computer doesn't show any "power light" and then the blue

light from the Targus AC fades off.................

HP/Compaq :: HP G50 & G60- Presario Cq-50 &60 VS. C700

I am so much happier with this notebook than I was with my Presario C714NR.

Upgraded Intel GMA 4500M 768MB Max VRAM VS. 384MB on C700 GMA x3100
Upgraded support for 8GB Max Memory VS. 3GB with the C700 **Some G/CQ's can only handle 4GB
15.6" Screen not really a big deal from the 15.4" C700
HDMI Port VS. none on the C700
Media Card is standard in the G series.. VS. optional in C700 series.
Discrete Graphics offerings available for the G series and CQ-Series VS. integrated only C700
G/CQ offers shiny black top finish. C700 More grainy finish.
Better gaming performance, however, not really a gaming laptop.

HP has made some great improvements to the Compaq offering, however compaq will always lack some of the premium features like FingerPrint reader......
