HP Pavilion dv7 notebook running way too hot

Q: HP Pavilion dv7 notebook running way too hot

My HP Pavilion dv7-1014ca Entertainment Notebook is running incredibly hot. The fan is on pretty much all the time. The BIOS is fully updated and I've vaccumed the vents and the fan. I keep my laptop on hard, flat surfaces, and yet at times it's almost too hot to touch. the entire bottom section of the notebook will be remarkably hot. Any idea what the problem could be? I've also had moments when my notebook shuts down without any warning for seemingly no reason. Could it be overheating?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My 2007 HP Pavilion dv 9543 cl notebook has two Hitachi hard drives; Windows Vista HP is currently indicated to be mounted on Disk 1; whereas, the original Disk 1 is now designated to be Disk 0. This inversion with respect to location of Windows Vista HP (32 bit) being on Disk O (original) is related to my installation of Ubuntu on a 40 Gb partition on the former storage disk 1 (followed by installation of the grub 2 dual boot software and subsequent installation of g-parted partitioning software). I was able to dual boot to Windows Vista HP or Ubuntu (various versions for several years, and because I eventually recognized that Windows Vista was working satisfactorily it did not bother me to continue such practice. However, I decided that I would update Windows if I could, but I didn't know how to remove Ubuntu properly.
 
Eventually, I attempted to rectify my poor decisions by erasing the Ubuntu partition; unfortunately, this left residual grub 2 traces of software on one of my hard drives and that is one of the reasons for my present predicament.
 
I had created a Hiren's boot disk prior to doing the above partition removal.

My stepson has an HP Pavilion dv1000 notebook. The power supply gets extremely hot and seems to be melting the tip to the plug where it connects to the notebook. Does this seem to be a problem with the notebook or only with the power supply. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

wow that is pretty hot... does it always run that hot, or does it only run that hot when he's gaming, or watching a movie? could just be a demanding laptop, but then again you could take it to a PC specialist (comp usa or local computer shop) and get the powersupply checked out. dang if it's melting the tip thats pretty hot... My dad's apple powerbook gets up to 75 degrees celcius when he's just surfing the web and stuff, so hot you have to take it off your legs if you don't want to burn yourself. so get it checked out, might just be a demanding laptop.

A:Re: hp pavilion 15 notebook Usb 3

Hi, It is great to upgrade system to Windows 10, but in the same time, series of issues occur, like the USB device issue. After upgrading the system to Windows 10, you find that your USB device cannot connect to your PC. You may need to plug your external devices like MP3, pen drive, printer, etc. to your computer through the USB ports. So it is very inconvenient that the USB ports don?t work properly. Solutions below may help you fix the USB port issue. Since your USB device works properly before you upgrade the system, the problem most probably is not caused by the USB device. But you can also plug the USB device to another computer. If it unfortunately doesn?t work, you can consider replacing the device. Following are the solutions to figure out the problem. Solution 1: Check if the problem is caused by power supply issue 1. Unplug the power supply and charger plug from your PC.2. Restart your PC. Connect your USB device to the PC again. Then you can plug the power supply.Solution 2:The Power Management would also be the cause of the USB problems. Windows is set to shut down your USB controller to save power by default, sometimes it won?t be able to power it back up. So try following steps to prevent Windows from ?managing? power to your USB controller or the devices.1. Open Device Manager.2. Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers branch.3. Double-click the USB Root Hub device, and click the Power Management tab. (if there?... Read more

The screen of my laptop got damaged along with some ports, when it accidentally fell a few years ago.  I have beenusing it with an external monitor since, and have used it how you would use a desktop, and so far it has been working great, until about a month ago, where it has issues at start up.  The selection to repair is only shown on the original laptop screen, where I can manage sometimes to see it while moving it back and forth, but this is a pain, so I have decide it toget a computer, and put the hardrive of this laptop in a hardrive case to use it as an external drive, since I have on itMicrosoft office, music, photos, and other files that I still use. What size of case do I need?  I see a 2.5 inch Hard Drive IDE HDD external enclosure on sale.  Will this fit?  This is a separate question, but I really want to replace it with another Windows 7 computer, where to get nowdays?  I use Windows 10 at work, and is awful. Thank you in advance.

Then on getting it out to use again this evening I cannot get it to start.

A:HP Pavilion Notebook Not Booting

Nice machine and configuration.
I would first try removing two memory modules, and attempting a boot with the third.. then if that doesn't work, change modules until you have tried all three.
It is difficult to trouble-shoot a machine like that... but we are seeing a LOT of ealy failures in the large laptops hard drives from 250 GB to 500 GB, so suspect that your hard drive might be bad. A good test would be to try any other known good hard drive from 80 GB on up to 500 GB... can you borrow one, then try to format and install it.
If still dead when you change memory and hard drive, it is time to get it back to HP for warranty work.
Anything you do that is not memory and not a hard drive will void your warranty.

My HP pavilion does not take charging after 80% and sometimes the charging light starts blinking. It shows plugged in , not charging.

A:My HP pavilion 15 notebook does not charge after 81%

Have you tried a battery diagnostic either in the UEFI diagnostics (F2 as you power on) or in the HP Support Assistant running from Windows? Stopping at 81% seems like it may be a dead power cell in the battery. Can we have the full model number of the laptop and an idea how old the battery is? Original?

When I use my shift key to access secondary symbols, it does not use the standardized ones but the blue ones instead.  For example, shirt + 2 gives me quotations rather than the at sign.   Please help!

(You may delete the post, if it is not relevent here) I could not find my question answered anywhere and I could not find any place where i can contact (except email) for the three issues I have started seeing on my HP Pavilion G6. 1- When machine is started (while BIOS checks and when Windows' logo is spinning) screen started to display a line with random colors. Seems like pixels are broken/dead. It becomes fine when desktop is loaded. 2- Battery does not hold charge for more than 25 minutes and it has started to go down faster now.3- Power connector on laptop seems to be lose, i have to push it in to get the charging going.  If you can forward me to the right place where to contact HP, it will be appreciated.

You are out of warranty now so this is where HP will send you. We are volunteer fellow end users just trying to help but with no access to the HP warranty system.  1.  If the screen is OK once Windows boots I would not worry about it.  2. The battery is what, now 4 or 5 years old? It has seen its better days and needs replacement. Let us know where you live (country) and we can point you to a place to buy one.  3. This one is potentially a bigger problem. However, as long as the charger runs the laptop OK with no battery installed you are likely OK. They do tend to loosen up with age. If the charger will not actually power the notebook, then it is a problem with the charger port module which is not too expensive to replace, or the motherboard, which is.  For out of warranty repairs in the U.S. and Canada HP is not a viable option. Their charges are very high as they need to be since HP is not really in the business of repairing out of warranty computers. You are better off with a local repair shop or if you are willing to try, even self-help. That is where this Forum is at its best, when we can help end users with out of warranty but still useable products fix them and keep using them for a reasonable investment.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi,I have ongoing issues with my HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-P287SA, Windows 10.  Yesterday it would not boot, instead it flashed the caps-lock LED at me once which I beleive is a CPU issue. I did a hard reset on it (took the battery out ect.) and it booted and worked normally all day. This moring it again won't boot again but this time it beeps twice, waits a few seconds and then beeps twice again, five tinmes in total, and then it flashes the caps-lock LED twice, waits, and then twice again. It won't boot at all, even after a hard reset.  What does the beeping mean, what is the problem here?

My HP Pavilion Notebook  Product No:  P1A79UA#ABA  On Windows 10 keeps hibernating for no apparent reason.  This has happened since I bought the laptop new about 10 months ago.  Today it happened about 15 times (sometimes it will go weeks at a time without happening).  This occurs while I'm actively working on the computer (e.g. actively typing or browsing), not just when the computer is idle.I use the HP recommended power settings and have the advanced setting of Hibernate set to Never.Any help would be great.
