I have a Pavilion G7 1070us laptop that requires a cooling fan and attached heat sink unit replaced. The fan part # is 646578-001. the heat sink part # is 643256-001. on the heat sink there is a part # 4gr12hstp80. I have found the same cooling fan and heat sink as a replacement, but with different part numbers (heat sink part #643258-001, 4gr13hstp80) for sale through a supplier (cost plus shipping charge.) My question is: has your repair history proven that this cooling fan will work in the pavilion G7 1070us laptop? thanks for the reply.

When in doubt, search google images by part number. I have done that and found good photographs of both parts with the respective numbers on HP labels and the parts appear to be identical. You can try it yourself and see if you agree.

To clarify my question further: Has your experience working with HP Pavilion G7 1070us laptops allowed you to use different HP part numbers for replacement parts (in my case, i.e. the cooling fan and heat sink assembly) to repair the unit? I have removed the failed cooling fan and heat sink and googled the part, found it, but the HP part numbers do not match. Both cooling fan and heat sink assembly parts look identical other than the HP part numbers I can identify on the label. thanks for the reply.

Yes due to different distribution channels and iterations in different machines it is very possible for the same part to be distributed under different part numbers. HP sometimes does not even know this and the big online parts houses figure it out. If it is a reputable parts house and they advertise the part as working for a specific model, you can believe it within normal allowance for error, which is very small. To be sure I have not had experience with this exact combination of parts numbers (that would be a long shot) but can attest that multiple part numbers can refer to the same physical part. This has been true on all laptop manufacturers as long as I have been ordering parts (since about 1997).

Thanks for the reply. Your experience helps me in making a decision about investing time to use the delivered part for attempted repair. Check back on jul 21 for results and details on part #s used.

My bad and sincere apology. The chance of error was not so small after all. I will note that the part lasvegaswireman is referencing is not the same part kyle is referring to.
