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 pavilion notebook starts up with an error message that it was shutdown due to overheating, but should start normally. Then it boots normally but just keeps going back and shutting off after just a few minutes. I've tried running diagnostics but it shuts off in the middle of the process.

I am using a HP Pavilion g6-1209ax Notebook PC which is having AMD A6 APU, the problem with it is the processor overheats during operation. The temp rises >70deg Celsius, for monitoring the temp i am using "core temp". Is the temp in the normal range, i believe AMD still has thermal issues to tackle. Are other fellow/friends users using the this laptop are finding the same problem.  I also need HP advice on this issue.  Please advice on this laptop model: HP Pavilion g6-1209ax Notebook PCOS: Win7 Home basic x64 Regards, Jeetu

May not be AMD issue, was using a Lenovo ideapad with A6 & temp never went over 60degCAverage idle light task temp was 51degC, I use HWiNFO for monitoring temp & adding notification area status icons.Here in Thailand running temps normally are worse due to higher ambeint temp.I would check all runing processes & review your temperatures further,if 70degC at idle light tasks & rises higher then it a concern but if hitting 70degC playing a game, watching a HD video or compressing 500mb of files to an archive or such ! then not such a concern & a normalish max temp reading of an A6 Also review location of laptop as if placed badly the casings vents & intakes may be comprimized.One bad thing seen on many HP notebooks is higher running temps due mainly to poor thermal design & cooling components so I can apreciate some concern ...

I have a Toshiba Qosmio Av201 specs are as follows

Pentium M with Centrino Technology 1.8ghz
1.5gb RAM
80GB HDD
Nvidia GeForce FX Go 6600

I have been using NHC (Notebook Hardware Control) to keep track of my temps. and they are as follows

Measured in Celsius

CPU/HDD

Upon Boot up: 32c/?? <<forgot to check lol
During Idle: 34c/40c
When i watch like one or two youtube vids: 64c/48c
When i play DoD or CS:S 65c-83c/48c-55c

Now once the CPU hits the 64c mark it will stay there even if i let the machine idle again...

Is this normal? i have a Targus notebook cooler as well but it still hits those temps.
Also one of my notebook fans clips once in while (put a piece of paper on a house fan and thats what it sounds like)...so that right there is defenitly getting changed soon even though it doesnt do it all the time...some of the things i did do

-Without opening the machine...blew out the computer in every possible vent with compressed air

-Bought a notebook cooler which really doesnt help

thats about it lol...what im PLANNING on doing is...

-Ordering a new CPU fan for my machine...(for the clipping noise as well as maybe the fan is dying)

-Since the machine is open already for a fan swap...im going to put brand spanking new arctic silver between the CPU and heatsink

So all in all i hope to see a good and/or drastic drop in cpu tempature if the temps i listed are abnormal...

Last thing...has anyone heard of the chill pak?

Those temps aren't to bad. Your software could be reading those temps wrong, but even if it wasn't then those temps aren't that high. I would make sure there is no dust on it but I can be tricky to open laptops.

hi all i have a hp 15 notebook product number G9D74UA#ABA. i was playing games and it just shut down. i assumed after seeing if i was plugged in and the battery was seated good and restarted with no problem that it must be a heat problem. when i restarted it i ran speed fan and saw that the temps were 65 70 70 and 60 deg celsius (cant say that these numbers are 100% accurate but its running hot to touch too). i tried to vacume the vents as best as possible started doom 3 and within about 10-15 min it shut down again. so i tried to dissamble the case and clean out the fan and vents thoroughly but after i got all screws out (i removed 11) the case absolutlywount  budge. its hanging as if i missed a screw. can anybody tell me where i can find a tech manuel for this laptop? or am i getting all the screws or is the mb rivited at some point? if its rivited why did they design it like that. i cant afford to pay 150 bucks to clean it when there is no good reason that the consumer cant do it himself. thank you for the helpdave p

Just bought the computer two days ago and the computer overheats fasts. Chatted with HP support and they did a few things . They also told me to update to the new bios which I already had done when I first bought it, still it overheats. It seams the fan barely lets out any air to cool it off. I went out to the store today and pick up a cooling pad to put under my lapdesk desk which seams to be helping a bit. This is the worst computer.

You point # 3 mentioned above seems to me like a design flaw. Air-intake at the bottom.

I have bought three HP Laptops all different models at various times in last three years and every single one of them have overheating problem. I own other brands like Sony and Lenovo and they never have overheating problems. One more thing since we are on this topic - Why does HP love to factory install all the garbage, bloated software on their laptops?

Still is at about 90 degree Celsius.. and idles at a high temperature too!
 
The overheating I reckon has killed my hard drive so I have had to go out and buy a replacement hard drive.. it is very hot under the laptop.  It was giving me fatal errors due to overheating and turning itself off.
 
I don't want more things to die or for a fire to happen.

I have a digital ev500 notebook that overheats and shuts down. I searched on the internet and found a recall on some ac adapters that overheated. The one that I have is not one of the models listed but it does get hot as does the whole notebook. I have tried to load win 95 and 98 but each time I get a dll error message. I have three questions (1) is there a way to check the adapter and cord, (2) where do you think the excess heat is coming from,the cord heating up the notebook or the notebook heating the adapter and where would you check, and (3) and does any of this have anything do with the dll error messages.

My laptop which is just under 2 years old started overheating. I'm no PC newbie so I took the laptop all apart, took out the fan, cleaned all the dust out of the fins for the heatsink connected to the cooling pipe. I also cleaned the fan blades. I have never in ten years not seen this fix work - until now.

The PC shut down 5 or 6 times before I cleaned it. I use Speed Fan to see my HD temp and the temps for my CPU and GPU core sides (It's an AMD Trinity based A8 APU) My CPU runs the hottest at around 200 - 112 degrees F.

My Fan airflow is good and strong since the fan/fin cleaning BUT when the PC gets hot, the fan's air still seems cool compared to previous experience. it's seems like the heat isn't getting picked up by the fan but i cannot find any restrictions under the hood.

I have run burn in and other CPU/GPU stress tests and all accounts say my chips are working normally.

Is it possible my cooling pipe is bad?

Also, I read that overheating could cause thermal paste to dry out prematurely. This may be my only recourse but i never had to replace thermal paste before.

Please tell me what you guys think. Thanks!

A:HP Pavilion G7 Overheating All Clean - Now what?

Replacing the paste would be the next step. Personally I would have done it while having it apart the first time. Be sure not to overdue it when replacing as too much can be as bad as too little. A layer about as thick as a piece of paper is what you want to end up with. Also clean the surfaces with alcohol before applying.

The cooling pipe itself is a static device so it should never go bad, just copper pipe. If the paste doesn't fix it then could be the temp sensor circuit or possibly the CPU. I suppose even the motherboard. Could be a tough one to nail down.

For what it's worth, if the paste doesn't fix it, I would take it to a local repair shop where they have the tools to better isolate the problem. Depends how much they want compared to your valuation of it. It is one of the negatives about laptops when these kinds of issues arise. Not as easy to plug in a test part to see if it makes any difference.

So I have had my Dv6 for a while now and its fan always is on fully, and does not stop whirring. I sometimes play games on it, but noticed the processor shooting up to 90 degrees Celsius really quickly. and the same with the Ati Gpu. I have an intel core i7 Q720, and thought that ho would equip the laptop with a good enough cooling system.I have taken these approaches so far:1-bought an external fan table    result: little to no change 2- Set the maximum processor speed on 35%    result: no change in performance, but it still heats up to around 80 So what can I do to ensure the heat does not rise so far?Thank you guys in advance.  PS: I have read most of the posts asaking the same question, but most do not have the same processor and I have tried all the solutions posted by some helpful members.

A:Hp pavilion dv6 overheating really quickly.

If it is a bad cooling design, (I am not saying your is) there is not much you can do. If it is another problem like an improperly installed heasink, this can be repaired by a reputable repair shop.  Do you have a warranty? This may be normal operating temperatures for this model notebook and i7 Q720 processor, you would have to compare to others with the same hardware specs as yours.

Hey folks,

I've had my HP for 2yrs now and it's always been fine until the last 6 months or so when the battery life was slowly diminishing when it wasn't connected to the charger.

Anyway got a new 12-cell battery and ever since then my laptop's suddenly switches off due to overheating.

It got me thinking that that battery may be responsible?

However the laptop would overheat before this change but it never automatically switched off.

Any help?

A:Hp pavilion dv6000 overheating

Buy a can of compressed air and blow out any dust from the vents and fans.

The DV6000 is part of the heavily flawed line of HP models that has critical over heating and failure issues. Se if yours is one of them: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us

I'd also strongly recommend a BIOS model for the laptop even if its not one of the affected models, for the affected models its a must or you'll eventually end up with a non-functional laptop: http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Look...pe=s-002&h_query=dv6000&submit.x=0&submit.y=0
Make sure to let the laptop cool down completely before doing the update.

After doing that if the laptop still has issues then maybe there is an issue with the new battery or due to its size its increasing the inherent overheating issue. Your 12 cell battery, is it a physically bigger battery?

We have three Pavilion 17-f037cl and they run too hot. We noticed when one of them got so hot it started turning off by itself after about 15 minutes of use. We checked another one and it's running at 100 degrees Celsius when idle, and up to 115 under load. I ran a CPU stress test using Mersenne and didn't even hear the fan turn on until it got to 120. The fan battled it back down to 117, then it rose to 119 and stayed there. I stopped the test, and the fan dropped the temp to 100, then turned off again. Here's what I have tried so far:Removing dust. We blew out the vents with compressed air and didn't see anything, so I took it apart and visually inspected the fan. No dust visible on the fan or heat sink, but I blew compressed air over it anyway. No effect.Upgrading drivers. I upgraded the AMD graphics driver and the BIOS. No effect.Purchased a cooling mat. Barely made a difference. Just got a regular fan and put it on the vents, and that's keeping it cool enough so that it doesn't restart, but it still running around 105-110 C.Installed SpeedFan to see if I could use it to increase the fan speed. Speedfan couldn't find the fan, so no effect.Ran the HP PC Hardware Diagnostic UEFI on Quick Mode. It scanned for about an hour and didn't find anything.Our other HPs are running at around 50 C.We did a clean install of Windows when we first got these, so maybe I deleted some important program like HP Coolsense?

Hello- I've been having an chronic problem with my Pavlion g6 (AMD A6-4400M, 4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3). The fan is constantly running at high speed, the computer itself gets very hot and at times the fan is really loud just with one program open. I downloaded a program called Speccy to check what components are in my computer before I posted here. Speccy also shows the temperature of the processor, motherboard, graphics card and hard disk. So, I sent a screen shot of my Speccy to a friend who better at computers than I am and he freaked out when he saw my results. He noticed the processor was running at 122C and told me that's not good and that my computer should have shut off or burned up by that point. He suggested I clean out the ventilator fan, but its so difficult to get to without having a bit of know how. So I vacuumed out the various vents and I noticed a dramatic change in the fan speed, running much slower. But the temperature of the processor still goes from in between 90 and 120 C depending on how many program or even browser tabs open.  So I'm not sure what the next step should be. I saw this link and it made me wonder whether the fan is coated with dust and hair. http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01657439 I read on the AMD site that their processors maximum temperature is 100, I don't want to fry my computer like an egg.  I've included two of my Speccy reports, one before vacuuming and the other after (t...

A:130° C Overheating Pavilion g6

Hi 1stTimeLaptoper, welcome to the HP Forums. First of all, let me say that this was an excellent post! You are right to be concerned with the temperatures. The lifespan of a processor is directly related to how hot it gets and how often it gets hot. The troubleshooting you provided was right on the money for the first step. Did you also follow the link at the bottom for: Fan is Noisy and Spins Constantly, PC is Warmer than NormalIt is a journey to get to the Fan in a notebook. I assume you are not within the warranty period, otherwise you would have called for warranty repair right?I have included the:  HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC Maintenance and Service Guide.  In this, page 69 leads to the instructions to get to the Fan & Heat Sink. If you do go so far as to reapplying thermal paste, I recommend reviewing this older YouTube video, for the application process:  Installing Thermal Compound (NCIX Tech Tips #11) I hope this helps.

So I bought 2 Pavilion g7s in 2013, for my wife and I. My cooling fan is always loud, and my wife's is always quiet... what the hell? Is this another case of HP putting out a botched assembly job, or what? My laptop is ALWAYS hot, and I use a cooling pad under it with 2 fans. I have the cooling on Passive just to keep it from shutting down with a thermal shutdown message when I restart it... not to mention the battery never fully charges. I think my laptop is a 15 0r 1300 series DX, but i don't remember. I have tried 3 times to upgrad to 8.1 and it shuts down halfway through setup... I think someone owes me a replacement... either that or a new cooling fan that I can switch out. What's the deal, HP?

It's 4 years old. Has it been like this the whole time? If so why not get it fixed under warranty? HP does not owe service on an out of warranty (long out of warranty) laptop any more than GM owes me a new engine on my 97 Buick.  Now if you want to discuss how to fix it and where to get the parts that is the purpose of the Forum.

So I bought my laptop about a year ago, and its been a nice piece of hardware.  Well, up until recently.  I've noticed that my laptop has been getting hot for about half a year now, and several months ago I noticed that the computer had slight stability issues, so I decided to buy a fan accessory that sat on the bottom on my laptop to blow cool air in.  It didn't seem to help, so I decided to check the temperatures using a program called SpeedFan and I noticed that my "Core" is about 72C and my "Temp1" is at 80.  On the lowest of settings.  If I put my laptop to high performance, the laptop eventually craps out.  This even happens on "Recommended" settings.  What exactly should I do about this?

A:HP Pavilion dv4 - Overheating issues

Try cleaning out the fan and heatsinks, if they havn't been cleaned out in a year they might be blocked.

Not too long ago (probably a week and a half), I took my laptop to be serviced and repaired as it was still covered under warranty. However, while some of those problems seems to have been resolved (four beeps and notifications stating that the display driver stopped responding) I noticed that it still has some of the issues from before. The internal fan is occasionally loud, which probably means that the system tends to overheat. When this happen, the notebook freezes up for a few seconds and restarts automatically.

I've been contemplating cracking open the notebook and seeing if the fan is clogged up with dust or whatnot, but I'm not sure what the safest way to go about it is. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I recently purchased the HP Pavilion with GTX 1050 video card [Model: 15-BC220NR] and loaded some games to run and test it. I am running the game on max settings, which the card is more than capable of handling. Also downloaded Piriform's Speccy to monitor the heat in the laptop because I suspected the thermal dissipation design might be amiss.  My average temps for Idling were around 35-55C for both the CPU and Motherboard. This goes up to ~65-80C on peak performance.  The motherboard usually is always at a higher temp than the CPU (which I find odd) and makes me wonder if this would be indicative of possible motherboard overheat failure in the future. By higher I mean ~10C higher than the CPU. Conditions:Location: My Game Room Temps ~72FSurface: TableTime to Heat: ~1-2mins from Game Start

Hi, i was given a hp pavilion dv6000 a while back now, and i've recently come across overheating problems while burning dvd's.
I've installed flash bios and used the hoover on the vents (which was recommened by hp support) but i'm still having problems.
I'm just wondering if there's anything i should try, maybe it's worth taking the heat sink out to give it a clean..?
I ran 'hardware sensors monitor' today and the cpu cores got up to 77*c (while the cpu's working at 100%) before i stopped it . I also just noticed that the bottom rubbers that are near the cpu fan and hdd are missing, seems like the heats melted the glue and they've fallen off.

Any help or advice would be appriciated!

Thanks, Dave.

My pavilion notebook starts up with an error message that it was shutdown due to overheating, but should start normally. Then it boots normally but just keeps going back and shutting off after just a few minutes. I've tried running diagnostics but it shuts off in the middle of the process.

A:Pavilion NB overheating message at startup

Can you hear the fan running? It could have failed and will need to be replaced. It could also just be clogged with dust or other debris. Pick up a can of compressed air and use it to blow out all of the vents,ports and other openings in case to see if that makes any difference.

I've adjusted all the power settings and then advanced power settings to disable any form of hibernation, yet it still does it. So I clean installed Windows 7 Home Premium and did it all again, yet it still keeps doing it.

Once I figured out it was running hot, I installed HWmonitor so I could keep track of the temperatures better.

I then pulled off the fan and heat sink and replaced the paste, blew compressed air into everything and got it clean.

Still it climbs to 60c where it then forces me into hibernation.

Is the hibernation thing because of over heating? That would probably mean the fan needs replaced?

I can get a half hour of use out of it before it starts misbehaving.

I really used to love my laptop.. but now all it does is throttle whilst gaming.. I cleaned out the heatsink and the fan and yet it still overheats like a mad thing (CPU:92 degrees.. GPU:103 degrees) So my conclusion is, after reading many other posts, that the dv6 notebooks have a TERRIBLE DESIGN. And to make it worse, HP dont even give a care. Never buying this nonsence again.

A:Pavilion dv6 overheating (7690m XT thermal throttling)

Hey guys.. So after finding out that some people on this forum are rude, and tell you to download drivers that were released in 2011, I decided that I would experiment a bit. Updating my drivers did indeed do the trick (GPU temperatures dropped from 103 degrees to 87 degrees in the same game after the same period of time) I did not use HP's official drivers because I already had their latest version, and it made my GPU thermal throttle like mad. PS: If you have the 7690m xt GPU, it is indeed the 6770m just with 2GB memory instead of 1GB BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE STEPS BELOW, I WOULD RECOMMEND MAKING A SYSTEM RESTORE POINT  I downloaded the drivers that are found on AMD's official website ( http://support.amd.com/en-us/download )Because I have 7690m xt (AKA: 6770m), I downloaded the drivers under following heading: AMD Radeon? HD 6000M and HD 5000M? SeriesOnce the driver download is complete, go into device manager and open the "Display Adapters" drop-down menu. Then delete the AMD GPU's drivers. Don't worry if your resolution looks a bit weird now. Then download Driver Fusion ( https://treexy.com/products/driver-fusion ) and delete the remains of the AMD drivers.Restart your notebook.Switch of Wi-Fi or any other mechanism of connecting to the internet.Install the AMD drivers downloaded earlier.Once installation is complete, restart your notebook.Everything should be good now. You can also switch Wi-Fi back on if needed

Hello,Recently I had posted a message regarding an HP Pavilion DV6-3210us not booting but just blinking the caps lock. I've just replaced the motherboard & exact processor & when I turned the unit on, the fan sped up very quickly as Windows attempted to boot but within 20 secs, it shut down. When I attempted to restart it, I received a message saying that the unit was overheating & was shut down but it safe now. Once again, the fan sped up quickly & the unit shut down before Windows could come up. I've contacted the MB seller & they said they believed it was a bad motherboard & will ship another one out. Is there an issue with these computers doing this?Any comments would be greatly appreciated.Thank you!

Hello. I have a 15-bc017nt notebook since 2 months. Recently I have realised my notebook is heting up very quickly to 80 degrees celcius and continues to heat up to 90 degrees celcius. Which was definately not the case when I bought 2 months ago. The highest temp at that time after hours of gaming was aroung 75 degrees. Now it only takes seconds to get pass 75 degrees after starting to use GPU.  Also I realised, although notebook has dual fan setup, from letf side there is no air blown when I place my hand over the back. Right side blows all the time. Speedfan says fan 2 never excees 200rpm whatever happens, even with 90 degrees cpu and gpu temperature it didnt kick in. HP Support told me to give my notebook to the service center but it may take as long as 1 month and I need to use my computer a lot. So is there anything I can do to fix the issue? This is a friends computer after the same benchmark ( furmark 1080p no msaa 1 mins )-- My notebook after JUST 1 minutes of furmark. Same test as above.Also FPS is lower than him apart from redicilous temperature. My fps does not increase on last week's nvidia update , and the same on hps nvidia driver. ---  This is my computer after 10 mins of furmark. Please pay attention to fan2 speed.  Looking forward to hearing from you, thanks in advance Regards, Furkan

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
