Replacement HP Pavilion DV6-3210us Motherboard Overheating!

HP Pavilion DV6-3210us
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

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!

If they have a bad motherboard yes. I think your seller knew he sent you a bad one and is willing to replace.

Honestly yes. The dv6 and dv7 models are big desktop replacements with powerful processors and most have dedicated graphics and they have been known to run hot. The 1st gen Intel Core processors and all AMD processors are the hottest.

Yes and that is what I am talking about. The dv6 and dv7 have been HP's desktop replacement (large sized) laptop models for years and they do have a history of heat issues as do all desktop replacement laptops.
