Re: Hp pavilion dv6 overheating really quickly.

Hi,

 

Like all the other people posting in this thread the thing overheats veeery quickly. And its not like its because i'm using it in bed or anything (though I had a toshiba previously and even when it was on my bed it was fine...) even when its on my desk it overheats and turns off...I have to have the bottom part (where the air for the fan comes in) raised up or hanging over the edge of a lip for it to keep the laptop cool enough that it doesn't turn off. Its been like this from the day I got it.

 

Its annoying because other than the overheating its a good laptop...so i'm not saying I won't go Hp again...but I will be more carefull when buying laptops to make sure they have a decent cooling system o_O

although considering it has the i7 (which I think is the latest?) processor its not surprising its got cheap components with it, only cost me 750 new...

I'm thinking of going Dell tbh...I've always found them to be very reliable and most of my friends do too, possibly alienware if I can save up enough money.

I bought a dv6-2157us with an AMD Turion processor in it just about 2 years ago. It runs so hot I cannot put it on my lap. Nothing seems to cool it down. Just last week my hard drive failed and I have to assume it was due to the heat. It is very frustrating that HP says there is no problem with overheating in this machine even though there is. Now I am not sure if I want to invest in a new hard drive and continue to put up with this machine or just swallow hard and replace it. I bought an Acer with a Turion processor in it around the same time and it runs like a charm. Frankly, I would have expected the Acer to fail before the HP.

Re: Hp pavilion dv6 overheating really quickly.

I Got the HP DV6 6165TX (MAR 2012) (CORE I7 WITH 2GB ATI GRAPHICS). So there is a chance of extreme heating ,Offcourse. I play all the new graphics demanding games like BattleField 3,METRO 2033, Crysis,Call of duty MW3,Medal of honor dice, and many more quite easily on this.

                                              BUT TEMPERATURE used to reach 98C on CPU and motherboard and 80C in graphics card .GUYS DON'T WORRY. So I went to the power option and there U will see there is maximum and minimum processor state under PROCESSOR POWER MANAGEMENT.Change Minimum to 15% and maximum to 45%.

                                                                                  THEN YOU SEE ALL HEAT IS GONE. CHEERS

Re: Hp pavilion dv6 overheating really quickly.

This is a real shame because the overheating on the dv9000 (and other hp laptops)) is so prevalent that a lot of people are warning each other not to buy them. I know that i am. I dont own one but i sure dont want my friends to get cheated. And cheated they will be because it appears that HP is doing NOTHING about this issue. HP's customers are stuck with a bad product. thats what makes is so bad, the fact HP does nothing. I know i will never buy an HP laptop thats for sure. And i cant be the only one.
