My HP Pavilion dv1000 laptop fan makes unusual loud sound from yesterday. I am wondering if there is a way to either fix/replace the fan.
Is using the cooling pads going to help??

It is not just with HP, but every laptop, with dual core technology of multi threading...

That is how the stacks kernel is written. It runs a program on top of program, and if one program goes into the loop, the whole process halts and the fan kicks in to cool down the CPU...

In todays world eveverine in their mother scans in clean , so when they go digging your drive that is when you hear the fan!

Recommendation, if some Website is not fully loadad, and you can see that on your status tool car, clcik stop, the red cross, and see if the noise stops, if it still persists kill the application by closing the browser and reload it new again!

DV6000 hangs all the time, Fan makes noises as if its overloaded even while I am working only on Google Chrome. Laptop shuts down by itself, and even booting takes long time. Often need to boot multiple time as laptop hangs while booting.

That will work requires some patience actually if you don't do anything it'll srart to overheat so every once and awhile put your hand under it if it's still warm that's ok but if have to remove your hands then tap the bottom a lil hard

oh , thanx man, so i don't really need to worry then. i had this problem too, but it seems to have stopped after i cleaned out the fan. i though it was because there was too much dust on the fan so i cleaned it up and now it seems okay, though i don't know if it'll happend again so this answer makes me feel more sure about the situation i guess.

how to clean the fan by yourself? I tried to access the fan. I screwed off all the screws that I saw, but I couldn't get to reach the fan.

Cleaning the fan is really easy. All you have to do is get one of those compressed air cans that are meant for cleaning computers and other electronics and spraying the air vents of your laptop. Make sure your laptop is not turned on and spray the air vents. You will notice that dust will come flying out.

No, this is not normal behavior for a laptop. I have the same problem. It is definitely a problem with the laptop as my computer never made this noise during the first 12 months. Sure, occasionally the fan would kick on. But now it stays on constantly. To the point where it is annoying to be in the same room as my laptop. I have an HP DV8000.

Dear Will, I also own a DV8000 with the same problems as you had. At one point the system halted, due to cooling problems. I disassembled the notebook and was disgusted to find that HP really messed up the cooling machine: a piece of ducktape [yes DUCKTAPE] was used as a bridge between the coolerblock and the fan....of course the machine developed heating problems. I think it's a disgrace and something HP should be sued for... I made a new bridge, cut out from a cola tin and with some glue my notebook now functions fine. But beware, the machine has to be stripped almost completely before you are able to reach the vent department.
Good luck!

I am on Toshiba now and it did not make any noise the first year. But now I hear the fan! Maybe as the processor gets older the fan has to work harder to cool the unit?

okay, the problem came back again several hours after cleaning the damn fan...anyhow, i guess i'm stuck with the problem until the laptop breaks and i get a new one lol

Igor the troll must be right though. that the fan has to work harder as the processor gets older. cos i have a lot of space on my laptop and a lot of memo too, so i don't see what could be making it this way...except for what Igor said i suppose.

hi there...I recently did a fresh install of windows XP on a 4 year laptop that was running so hot it would shut down. The thing runs like new now and fairly quiet. I may not know much, but I do know that the constant number of programs and applications we load over time will start to bog your system down. Now, my 4 year old laptop runs smoother and quieter than my 1 year old machine.

I bet you have problems with dust in and around the laptop fan and the other parts of the cooling system causing your laptop noise problem. Found this soluiton that helped me to get rid of HP laptop fan noise:

Hey, I have an HP Pavilion dv7-2180us Entertainment Laptop and out of nowhere the fan is louder than any electronic i've ever had. I tried to open the thing up to try to clean the fan but got to a point where I felt like I was probably going to break the laptop to get in. Any idea of how to access the fan in this laptop w/o breaking it. Thanks in advance!

Don't do it yourself! Is it still under warranty? Mine did the same thing, and I sent it in for service and I got it back in a few weeks. There's something wrong with the fan - it's not just dirty.

My hp is 8 months old...at around 2 months old we noticed it getting so hot it would leave red marks on your legs..called for help and they told me that you cant put it on your lap only ona flat service..ha so much for buying a lap top...6 months later and we cant leave it on a flat surfice anymore..if we want to use my $1000 lap top we have to lay it on its side or prop things underneath it so there is more space for air to flow..what the heck..this was the supidest purchase we ever made.

I think the problem with HP computers in particular the laptops is that the vents for letting out the hot air blown out by the fan are placed at the bottom of the laptop. Logic dictates that such a laptop placed on a flat surface eg a table will hence have no ventilation. Actually whenever your laptop fan starts revving then tilt the laptop to completely expose the bottom. It will eventually cool down.

My HP Pavilion fan was VERY noisy and wasn't working well even when I had the laptop propped up on blocks to help the air circulation. I installed "SpeedFan" to give me information on the system temperature. It was always running very hot, and eventually the fan completely failed and the laptop wouldn't run for more than a few minutes before overheating and shutting itself off. I sent it in for warranty service (it was 10 months old) and it was fine until the AC adaptor failed. It's my first HP laptop and I have to say the quality is questionable.

I prop my HP up on a small pencil box to allow air to flow, the fan runs and runs. I put a small fan next to the laptop, still is running very hot. I have sent it back to HP 2 x in 2 years. The fan continues to run all the time, is actually noisy. The computer front is very hot, I put a fan behind it...still...the keypad is hot to touch after several hours of working. I am thinking of buying a new laptop, the HP has just disappointed me.

my boyfriend's 5 year old dell laptop is quieter than this 1 yr old pavilion. this thread has been going on for 3 years now. how can hp not take responsibility for this? it's so hot, i can't put the laptop on my LAP over a blanket or pillow even. it's so noisy, it HAS to be turned off in order to sleep. definitely wanting to chuck this laptop right now.

if you put it on a pillow or a carpet you would choke it :/ and get more dust in the fan..

my HP Pavilion laptop is only 12 weeks old from Comet, and after 9 weeks the fan started buzzing loudly continuously and would not turn on or off. I returned the laptop to Comet who sent it for repair taking 3 weeks. A new hard drive and fan were needed. I coudnt believe that a brand new laptop needed repair after only 9 weeks! The repalcement fan is now too buzzing (quietly getting louder
) continuously , its driving me mad and Im going to take back and demand another model under the guarantee. Dont buy HP !

Hi.

I have a HP G61.
I bought this laptop 2 months ago and as I turn it on the fan is really loud for a few minutes then it quites down and works fine.
I am just wondering if the fan might touches anything in the motherboard or what could be the reason that is so loud to start up with?

Any suggestions? Should I take it back? It's still under manufacturer's warranty.
Many thanks

Keep an eye on it - install SpeedFan or HWMonitor so that you can check the system temperature. When my fan was failing, the laptop was running at high temperature and shut itself off. I sent it in for warranty repair - it took a few weeks but no problems (except for the AC adaptor that failed) since then.

It's normal that a laptop starts with a short burst from the fan (a few seconds though) and then go quiet.

Many thanks for all of you who replied.
It happens that something must have been really wrong with my brand new laptop as I sent it off to be checked as the guarantee was still active and techguys have changed the fan and the CPU. I am a bit annoyed as I bought this laptop brand new and is already "falling appart". I hope, however, it will work now efficiently!
Thanks again guys!

I've had a similar problem with my 9-month HP Pavilion dv7, and I found this helpful link that recommends 1) updating the BIOS, 2) keeping air vents clear and clean (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/do..., 3) increasing the efficiency of the notebook, and 4) selecting a lower power setting for non-critical actions.

Hope this helps!

Well I think we've all learned that HP sucks and maybe the more important thing, how to spell the word NOISE!

Cheers! : )

The bottom line from reading all the posts is to avoid HP for ever in the future and you wont have to deal with HP fan noise!
I have called HP about this and other issues and Peggy answers the phone and refuses to put me through to management. I will purcahse another brand. Any suggestions?
