What notebook coolers are you using for the M4400? Are there any notebook coolers that would fit this notebook and plug into the usb port (for the fan unit on the cooler)? I just bought a refurbished M4400 and will be using it for some intense gaming
in choosing which notebook cooler is prefect for Acer 6930g, as i know cooling system work like, its intake from down vents and exhaust from side vents. i have done under clocking cpu its really worked, and currently cpu temp 63c under load and gpu around 75c. and right now iam looking to lower down more temp. i hope there will be perfect notebook for Acer 6930g.
I'm looking to get a notebook cooler for my E6400, as I am sure some other are considered or have taken advantage of. So, I want to find out one that is going to work the best.
I am considering the following:
- Zalman ZM-NC1000, said to be really quiet and effective. From what I gather blows air up at the notebook
- Antec notebook cooler, also supposed to be quite effective. This one I think sucks away the hot air from the notebook
Now the question is, what is going to be the better choice? I think the fan on the E6400/ E6500 blows hot air out of the notebook right? In which case the cooler that then helps in taking that away would be best?
I spoke with a Dell technician and they told me that the reason my computer was randomly shutting off was because it was overheating and that I needed to replace my heatsink and fan, each costing around $12. I was wondering if buying a notebook cooler might be a better way to go. Any notebook coolers that anyone recommends?
Finally, does anyone know what a technician would charge to replace a heatsink and fan?
I downloaded a program called speedfan and it gives me the following temperatures on my notebook:
HD0: 45C Temp1: 84C Core0: 63C Core1: 63C
Core temperatures moved up while computer was put to heavier use if it makes any difference:
Core 0: 76C Core 1: 74C
Anyone know if this is normal? Computer isn't working too hard right now.
I have a HP DV7t. The Specs of the notebook are in my sig.
Do you think I should get a cooling fan?
My computer runs great with no problems but I notice that it can get somewhat hot at times when I'm gaming. I don't play games too often and I mostly browse the web, but I play games on occasion.
The pic above is using HWMonitor. The max temps were reached while I was playing StarCraft.
Do you think those temps are too high for playing StarCraft? I have my computer slightly elevated in the back but wanted to know if you think I should get a fan such as the Zalman? What fan is recommended for HP laptops?
This thing gets up to 81 degs C. Only 3 vents on the bottom and hot air blows out the back. the rear vent is actually a crappy design as it is partially blocked because the laptop has no feet for elevation.
here's a pic of the bottom borrowed from another thread. the dv7 is on the left:
I haven't a clue which way the air flows on this thing.
I'm thinking of the Zalman 2000 or the NZXT Cryo cooler series
the other problem is i use the laptop on my lap with knees up. I have to cross my legs without a cooler to keep that rear exhaust fan clear. I need a cooler that won't block that fan.
does anyone have a cooler that gives good performance with the dv7?
I've read the reviews and cooling central. not real helpful, b/c i as i said, i haven't a clue about the air flow on this.
i've been looking around, as much as I hate buying devices for things that are already built into my computer, my HP dv5t just heats up way too much. (even with the back raised.) So now, the question is, which cooler to get?
i kind of like this one here: [url]
However, most reviews, and from what i've seen on this forum say to get this guy: [url]
what is the advantage of this Zalman cooler? am i right in saying that i should technically go with the Nzxt (out of these two) because it has the vents in the rear, which would help my dv5t's cooling system? or no?
I have my Compaq 6715b for already a year and a few months more. These few months have made been a nightmare with the dying chargers and extreme heating it produces.
I have started using Linux on it and after a successful installation the first original charger died. Some time ago already it started overheating and since the output of the cooler is less than a centimeter away from the power input (great architecture!) I suspect this heat has something to do with the instability of the power supply.
Later on I have tried 3 different universal chargers which all could not properly feed it with energy and in the end I had them replaced with a new original part. Since then I have been working without the battery because it became very unreliable and short-living.
My main concern now is that this new charger is also going to die off because of the heat it is now constantly exposed to. I have tried to take the cooler out, inspired by a friend who has a very similar but newer model of compaq and it turned out impossible to take out the last screw holding the cooler because it is hidden deep under the plastic.
something about the heating problem of the 6715b or even better - how to get the cooler out?
i built my own laptop cooler. Now my base was a stackable file organizer, so there were these tabs that stuck out. I normally would just rest my laptop on top of those tabs, with about half a cm distance between the mesh and the laptop. This weekend i got fed up with the slight wobble i would get using the tabs, so i pryed them out a bit so my dv5t would sit flush with the mesh, and WOW what a difference in temperatures! for once my hard drive is hotter than my gfx card! my gfx card max after playing codmw2 for about 2 hours was 57
my old crappy targus cooler broke for my hp dv5t and I am looking for a new one. My HP gets very hot, and I am especially worried about the cpu. Even with max undervolting it still gets to 65-75 quite often.
Since I do not know much about which cooler would be best for my hp, I was wondering what cooler you use/recommend for this computer. Also I was wondering if the Zalman 1000 would be big enough for the hp dv5t 15.4 inch, to cool the gpu and cpu or should i be springing for the 2000 in case i decide to go zalman.
I bought a DV4T (T5800) during black Friday last November. Lately it is unstable. The GPU randomly crashes and the fan is louder than when I first bought it. When I put my hand near the fan outlet it doesn't seem to be moving much air even at high speeds.
So I decided to try undervolting. In the process of undervolting I found out that the CPU is hitting its thermal barrier when I run a prime95 torture test (in place FFT's). It hits 85C and the thermal throttling kicks in. This is AFTER I lowered the voltage mind you.
I am just looking for confirmation of my suspicions. I emailed HP tech support, do you think they will give me a hard time with an RMA?
a laptop cooler for the HP DV7t-2000 (17.3" widescreen, approx. important dimmensions 16.2"x10.9"). The laptop does not really get all that hot (except when I am playing games), but I just want to get a cooler so that I can keep the laptop in perfect condition. I want this laptop to stay in the best shape possible for as long as possible.
Right now, I have just been propping the back using some video game cases. But I want something that is a little bit more reliable and powerful.
When the notebook is in use, the vent is at the top left corner. When flipped over so that it is upside down (as is shown in the picture below), the vent is in the top right. Any suggestions that would fit this configuration (I hope it was clear, just wanted to be precise )?
I recently got a dv7 (17.3") and I've been looking around for a good notebook cooler. The current cooler is not for this size and was wondering for any options available out there.
I've heard of the the Zalman-NC2000 but I'd have to "reposition" it to use it's capabilities. My next option would be the "NZXT Cryo LX". I am considering getting this one but would like to have other alternatives before I commit to it.
I use this laptop for gaming and photo/video editing so portability would be a plus.
Also, any good messenger bags for my lappy? I'll need space for my cooler and wacom tablet. I've been looking around for a long time as this and some were just a tad "tight" fitting in.
The back of the dv9000 has some slits for airflow, and there are also slits on the bottom of the unit. Because the airflow is so weak, I can't detect by feel which way the air is actually flowing.
Does air enter from the bottom and get exhausted out the back? Or Does air enter from the back and get exhausted out the bottom?
My as-yet-to-be-made cooler's fans will be mounted below the slits on the bottom of the notebook. Therefore, it's important to know if the fans should blow air onto the bottom of the notebook or if they should pull air away from the bottom of the notebook. This is crucial because if the cooler's fans are installed blowing air in the wrong direction, they could actually force hot air back into the notebook!
Is there a way to stop the fan even in idle mode? It's driving me crazy because it's always running on full speed. I have the latest bios and the bios option "fan always on when plugged in" is disabled.
What processor options do I have with this laptop?
Can I put the Intel Core 2 Duo out of my Dell e1705 in it? I plan to upgrade my 2.0 C2D to the T7600. So I'll have an extra processor. I know someone selling one of these laptops for $350, but it comes with a celeron 1.73Ghz CPU.
My friend is having problems with her HP DV4 Notebook.
1) The keyboard goes into crazy mode every now and then. Sometimes she will press a key and it will take several seconds to appear. Other times, she will hit backspace while in Internet Explorer, and it will take her into a new tab or a whole new program. Pressing a key once, such as an r for example, will lead to 20 some r's before it stops.
2) The fan seems very loud. She says it was like this since the day she bought it. Seems excessively loud to me.
I have dv6700 which came with a s-video out and I cant thank it enough for the countless times it has come in handy. Now my friend bought her dv4t and it came with a vga-out only. I know there is a HDMI port, but we are trying to connect to a SD-TV here and that doesnt support HDMI. I bought a vga-to-rca adapter in the past to use with IBM T60 notebook and it didnt work on that. Probably that notebook inherently didnt support tv-out from that vga port. Does HP notebook have the capability to do tv-out from vga port and if yes, what do I need to connect it to a standard definition tv set?
when i hit the "zero" key, the number "zero" moves to the beggining of the line! the down button also leaves this"]". i just recieved a new keyboard and installed it thinking this was the issue. i also reformatted, reinstalled, etc..etc..
