    Angry Laptop Overheating - Please help!!


    I have an HP pavilion ze5200 laptop which is consistently overheating and shutting down.

    Spec is
    P4 2.8Ghz
    40GB Hitachi Hard drive
    256MB RAM
    Win XP Home

    According to SpeedFan the CPU is running at 70 C and the hard disk at 56 C and the fans are running at 0 rpm (!). But I can see the fans are definitely working.

    Any suggestions on how to sort this out would be much appreciated - it'll be an expensive repair job otherwise!

    If you're deffinately sure that the fans are working it maybe a bios problem. Try updating to the latest bios for your laptop. I see you have a HP, they have excellent customer support. The reason i say it maybe (and not probably) a bios problem is that your cpu seems rather hot, even for a laptop, which are designed to operate at high temperatures. Before this problem started do you have any stats on cpu temperature or fan speed etc...
    Also another posibility is that the SpeedFan software isnt able to monitor the fan speeds for your particular laptop and the problem could actually be that the cpu is overheating (and not some bios fault). Perhaps try cleaning the fan out with an air duster, perhaps dust is clogging up the fan! Hope this helps. Good Luck!

    HP DV2000 Laptop Overheating


    Hi All,

    I wanted to post to let HP Laptop users an overheating problem I encountered. I saw many many people post all over the web about HP laptops overheating and may have a similar problem with other brands also.

    I am running an HP Pavilion dv2000 AMD Turion 64 with Windows Vista Premium and 4GB of RAM.

    About 1 month prior (approx. Mid February 2009) I noticed the laptop started heating up and the problem was worsening to the point where I was constantly shutting down to prevent overheating and damaging the internal components. I am not exaggerating when I say, the bottom of the laptop was boiling hot.

    I tried everything, convinced it was software related. I un-installed recently installed software from the time I recalled the problem started. Finally, after almost tiring out I started adjusting the power options... and VOILA!!! Problem resolved.

    For some reason, the Windows changed its power options to an HP default setting. I changed it back to a Power Saver mode and the over heating instantly disappeared.

    Hope that helps, and please post a comment if you had a similar problem and power options resolved the issue.

    BTW: The laptop is only about 8 months old and I am wondering if a bug or virus caused the setting change so it would fail after its 1 year warranty.

    try updating drivers and flashing your bios.
    check your thermal conductor it could be wearing off.

    There is also a battery recall take out the spaces of the above link to see if yours is one of them.

    Mine is less than 6 months old and I just had to take it in because it was overheating and shutting down, constantly.

    HP Laptop overheating issues


    I think the issue is with the motherboard,there is no solution for that ,if you do try to replace your motherboard with a new one after some time you can the issue again

    Hp is dealing a worst time when related to overheating issues

    Hp must do something inorder to keep its customers

    I used to have this problem, I removed the case cover to let it cool down. Now I always use it without the case cover. Dust builup more quicker but it cools it down a lot.

    Check the heat sink to cpu connection


    Download Speedfan to check your cpu temp: if it's over 50 Celsius then you may have a heat sink to cpu connection problem.

    On mine I checked it (voiding the warranty, but the warranty had long since run out anyway): it's just a couple screws. I took off the heat rail that's on top of the cpu and found a piece of plasticy paper sandwiched inbetween the cpu top and the heat rail that had something like "please remove before use" on it. I did remove it, and before my cpu ran at 80 Celsius just idling and jumped up to 100 Celsius where it would completely freeze until it cooled off at even a java game on a webpage doing its thing: now it maxes out at 50 Celsius with as much stuff as I normally throw at it (multiple java games on webpages, scrolling a large pdf at the same time).

    Isn't that bizarre? Apparently the technician assembling my computer was in a hurry or late at night or something.
