HP/Compaq :: SEVERE Temps With Dv6000 And GeForce 6150
Jun 21, 2009
I was given a dv6113us 2 weeks ago for free since it didn't work. It had the typical no video boot problem. I paid someone on ebay to fix the laptop for me for 80 bucks . Hp said I was out of warranty so they couldn't help me. The guy on eBay told me that he would basically reball and resolder my geforce 6150 chip on there. I sent it in last week, and I just got it back in the mail yesterday and all is working great except for some random freezing at times. The laptop will freeze for a minute every couple of minutes. The hard drive just stops reading out of nowhere, then starts again. Its a brand new hard drive. I was thinking this had to do with heat somewhere in the system.
I downloaded Core Temp and found that the CPU was running pretty cool on both cores.
Around 40c with medium load. Then I downloaded GPU-Z and saw these insane temps! I couldn't believe my eyes! My GPU temps hover around from 97 degrees celsius to 109 degrees celsius.
Before I sent in the laptop I tried taking it apart and was stuck at the top cover. Something was holding it together by the track pad. I almost ripped the cover off but decided to give up and put it back together. Now that I found the post from MrFoo, NOW I know what was holding me back!
I have a hp compaq v6000 laptop with a GeForce Go 6150. The last driver I could find for it was made in 2006. I was wondering if there was any newer drivers or some solution either official or unofficial that could make it so I can test OpenGl 3.0-3.3 dependent programs on here.
The dv6000 I own had some known heating issues. I am already on the 2nd hard drive as I think the last one simply got fried. The laptop in general performs well. I am close to buying a new Sager gaming laptop but am thinking of holding off till early 2010. I'm a little worried about another overheating issue. Aside from work, every Sunday I stream NFL football at 720p. I live in Peru and only come to the US a couple times per year. I either need to buy a new laptop in the next month or likely hold off till April or so.
What are your thoughts on my hardware temps? When I took this screen capture I had a couple java application open (my typical work environment) and was streaming 720p flash based video for over an hour. Are these temps OK?
I should point out I now use a fan cooling pad since I replaced the hard drive. I also have some drivers from HP that supposedly addressed some of the heating issues.
I have an HP 8710w with a Quadro FX 1600M graphics card. I have been experiencing my problem for several months now. I have tried installing all imaginable graphics drivers, even doing a fresh install of Windows twice(XP and Windows 7) but to no avail. The problem I am having is difficult to explain but the following represents my best attempt:
If X is the speed that a laptop runs at while plugged in(i.e. best performance and full use of components) then Y is the speed the laptop runs at while running on battery. However, even when plugged in, my laptop runs at Y. The kicker is that if I unplug and replug the AC power to the laptop again and again, I eventually get the laptop running at X again. I have to do this every time I want to use a graphically intensive application or my framerates are that of Y. I have tried taking out the battery and running the laptop directly from my charger. The problem persists. I have tried using a different charger. The problem persists. Everyone I speak to seems to think it is a software problem. How can this be when I've reinstalled Windows twice?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1526 that won't boot because the CPU gets very hot in only a few seconds. I was getting a CPU failure code (blinking num lock LED) so I changed the CPU. Same problem.
In desperation, I changed the motherboard. Unbelievable, but the same problem! I tried to do a diagnostic start up (hold Fn key while powering on) and it shut down in about 40 seconds. When I went to swap the CPU, the heat sink was so hot that I couldn't touch it.
On on Dell Inspiron(14z)- 5423, I observe that the heating severe, it becomes severe within 15 min after boot-up. Is there any solution to reduce the heating of the deceive. Left side of the key board, in and around the power button and bottom side of the power button, near the fan outlet etc goes to high temperature.
Dell Inspiron(14z)- 5423 severe battery problems.
On on Dell Inspiron(14z)- 5423, I observe that the battery back-up is very very low, I think i get a back-up around 70-80 min. It very disappointing. Does Dell has any solutions to improve this?
Above two problems are really disappointing me and I think that these two issues are really major pros of Dell-5423. It really critical.
i was using my hp dv6000 laptop and tried to open a video file my system got rebooted instantly and after that I saw a crashed boot screen (HP logo was all distorted, vertical lines on that). Any way i went to the safe mode and uninstall the nvidia drivers, now its working fine with default windows vista home vga driver but the boot screen is still distorted. When i update the nvidia drivers the laptop refuses to go inside the windows.
Have to go to safe mode uninstall the driver and it starts working on default vga drivers.
A friend of my g/f gave me her computer to fix. She said she took it to Best Buy and they said her HD is messed up. Now, if I order a new drive and the restore disks from HP, will that fix this issue? She is not worred about losing any data. Is my thinking correct? Install new HD, put in restore disks, start it up and follow the directions.
I bought an HP Pavilion dv6000 with a problem on the screen, I have less than half the screen at the bottom with a dark line where sometimes changes color or simply it removes and looks normal I have no problem with the rest of screen,
hp pavilion dv600. when u press the power button it will sometimes restart three times before displaying the hp start up logo and sometime it starts fine it does the same thing even if the hdd is out or cd drive is out or if the battery is out or if the RAM is out?
my mom has a HP Pavillion dv6000 made for being mobile and having some gaming capability anyway she's had it for year and half well long story short its alwas been kinda slow and I ran some tests on it because I'm thinking about buying it from her and the processor AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-58 @ 1.90GHz is like locked at 803.9MHz won't go past it I ran OCCT for an hour and it never went over 803.9MHz and never went under 803.7Mhz any idea what the problem could be?. I know she didn't do anything to it, all she does is go on Facebook.com and play FarmTown >_>
My mom's HP dv6000 will not connect to any wireless networks. I thought the network adapter might be fried but last night for no reason after weeks or months of not working the light for the wireless switch was on and turned blue. Wifi card worked flawlessly until I left it off the charger for a few hours and it turned off. Upon rebooting its again broken. The wireless switch indicator led stays red in both the on and off poisition.
The speakers on my laptop are not working. The weird thing is the sound works when I plug in my headphones in either headphone jack (so that's good news, I suppose). But when I unplug the headphones, no sound.
Here's the thing; you know those media buttons that make that little beep whenever you touch any of them? Well, they work fine (volume up and down, mute, DVD and QuickPlay), but no beep sound from them either!
My 2 years old dv6000 display yesterday started to show a thin yellow vertical line about 2 inch from the right of the screen which run from top to bottom, and after a bit of googling, I found out it's unrepairable and I need to replace the screen
Anyway, after reading some of the threads on this forum, it seems to me that it's possible to replace the screen with a higher resolution one, albeit on dv9XXX ones. Has anyone done this upgrade on dv6XXX? And what screen (spare parts no/maker) did you get? Was there any 'misfit' with the hinge/panel/connector/inverter?
Vidcard=NVIDIA Go 7400 Screen =15.4" WXGA HighGloss BrightView Screen max resolution=1280X800
Is there any free software out there that is better than Quickplay that comes on the notebook? The webcam works okay, but my wife just got a newer version of HP and her Cyberlink Youcam is nice, but not worth 30 bucks. Currently has Vista 32 bit.
my dv6000 has a common problem, it just wont turn on anymore, it's starts up and shuts down with in 5 seconds and repeats until i turn it off - i'm gonna either strip it for parts or sell it as seen for spares/repair.
Two questions if you'll indulge me - is this the motherboard that's gone? Most pages online suggest this and getting a new motherboard is expensive and likely to go again i think. Secondly do you guys know where the bext place for new to try and sell it for spares is and what could i possibly expect from it with a bad mb?
I am having a few problems here with a dv6000. Firstly I need to point out that the power button on the machine is broken so the only way to start it is by using the quick launch keys and booting into Windows that way.
Ok, so I have been doing some routine work on my brothers machine, however, It was getting quite low on disk space on the C partition. When I originally set up his machine I created a C: and D: partition for his documents.
No problem, I thought and went into Partition Magic with the intention of removing a gig or two from D and relocating to the C partition. Of course though ,it failed and now I have about 2 gig of unpartition space.
Windows now tells me the Hal.dill is missing or corrupt. The funny thing though is that it still boots, it hangs for a few minutes on the error the restarts and boots fine and it only displays the message on a fresh boot, not on a restart.
I ran a chkdsk /p last night, but stupidly didn't run a chkdsk /r so that will be my first task tonight.
From what I have read its quite simple to re copy the hal.dill file but I am worried this may affect using Quick Launch the boot the machine.
No hardware problems showing in Device Manager Windows 7 Home Premium 1gig Ram
Problem > No Sound (sorta)
There is no sound ONLY from the Bottons Above the keyboard Which Beep, IF and only IF you close the lid and wait for the computer to go into sleep mode, WHEN you re-open the lid, There is sound for about 2sec, Until the computer shows the USER LOGIN (Square picture you click to log in)
If you plug head phones into the computer there is ONLY sound on one side (i think right side) I thought maybe it was a faulty JACK so i Removed the entire board from the front of the computer(unpluged from mother board)
I had windows Vista on this computer and it was the same!
I dont believe this is a driver problem but could be... Everything is un-muted and working. like i said. i GET sound when i first open the notebook
This problem started when i unlugged my headphones
I'm trying to set up dual monitors, and can't seem to get it to work.
I'm using a external LCD with a DVI->VGA converter plugged into the laptop. The LCD knows there's a signal as when I plug it in it just goes blank as opposed to the "no signal" screen.
However the laptop doesn't seem to detect it. When I go to graphics properties it says "Multiple Display, blah blah, please connect another display". And there's no tab for another monitor or anything.
i have a HP dv 6000 note book and its getting quite old now... so it has developed an issue which i need help on. the screen freezes up when i open the notebook...and when i just knock slightly on the screen it goes back to normal...but its getting worse now... is it some loose cable....if so ..
My little brother has a laptop that has stopped loading the OS, and now It keeps restarting.
It is a HP Pavillion dv6000
Most likely a virus has crippled the MBR (Master Boot Record) That's what the original thought was.
Here is what I have already tried: -- Tried running HP recovery (nothing) -- Tried resetting to factory defaults. -- Tried loading and XP disc in to use the recovery program on that. (Laptop came with Vista I do not have a disc) ((After this is when it started to continuously restart))
I used to be able to enter the BIOS. Now I can not.
I am utterly lost right now.
I even took it into my A+ certification class, that is where we tried the above.
The fan is clogged with dog hair in the back. I unscrewed all of the screws on the backplate, yet I cannot for the life of me figure out how to pull it off. I don't want to get take the memory, harddrive or cd drive out. I just want to clean out the fan. Whoever helps me will be rewarded with pictures of the most dog hair filled computer...
