Fan gets EXTREMELY hard on laptop dv7-HP-6135dx

Hey everybody,

I love my HP laptop and it's the first question I've ever had with him.  Unfortunately, it's like my child, and I love it so much.  I'm very worried about it.  In recent weeks, the fan got ridiculously strong and sometimes it's to the point that it makes the computer vibrate so much worse to be boring.  I went into the BIOS settings and changed the fan to be always on on and outside so she breaks now.  I tried to spray some canned air into the unit to clean it and it helps a bit, then returned to fort shortly after.  The fan probably needs to be replaced, but because my laptop is out of warranty I don't know what to do.  I could take it to Geek Squad or a PC repair shop.  Does anyone know how much a replacement of the fan on a laptop usually cost?  It is difficult to do it yourself?  It's very painful.  I have not had overheating problems, but I keep always the laptop on a desk and I have an oversized battery then the laptop always has air below.  I downloaded a program called Speedfan and not had much luck with the fan speed setting.  I really want to be fixed and only cost me an arm and a leg that I'm laid off.  Can someone point me in the right direction with regard to what I have to do.  The fan isn't always like that I say this happened not so long ago.

Its a HP dv7-6135dx Notebook

This is the product number: LW174UA #ABA

I am running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit Service Pack 1

The processor is Intel (r) Core i5 - 2410 M 2.30 GHz CPU

The GPU is Radeon (TM) HD 6490 M integrated with Intel(r) HD Graphics Chip Family (switchable)

Thank you very much




I'm sorry that your system is what gives evil at a time where it is difficult to simply to take you in and get it fixed.  It's always this way, it seems.

You are right to make sure that the laptop is clean on the inside; There may be something still stuck inside - a bit of lint or small tiny pieces - after a few years of things find their way into the vents.  Maybe you're lucky and that's it, that is.  Just in case this happened, you can take another shot of cleaning from the outside:

  • Stop the laptop, disconnect external bits and power.
  • Get a wooden toothpick bit and turn the fan to turn into the wind on the side (or depending on the model).
  • Using a can of compressed air, a few inches, gently and repeatedly, using short strokes, out the air in the flue to dislodge dusty bits.
  • Repeat part cleaning for other events - not no need to toothpick...

Then go to the hardware store and get a height rubber 'feet', small circles or squares of plastic / rubber.  Place a 'foot' on each corner of the bottom on your laptop, two of the feet on the edges of this nice big battery.  It is more more clearance under this laptop for air circulation.

Go to your nearest electronics store and buy a laptop cooler.  You can get a really fancy with a switch for about $70 US - you can get a better deal that will work very well for less money.  Chillers running on USB 2.0, you don't need a USB port available on the laptop.  If you have too much already connected to your laptop, buy a small USB hub - if the HUB has its own power supply, and the hub will be on all the time, make sure you buy a cooler with a switch so you can turn off the cooler when you are not using it.  This is actually a good way to go, but it costs no more to put in place to buy hub fancy and fancy cooler, and I do not forget your finances.

Put the laptop with new feet high on the new cooler, turn on the cooler and Ta-Da!  Extra cooling for this laptop struggling!  Low magic.

When you get back to work, you can have someone look at your laptop nice and see what to do next.

Good luck!

I hope this helps.  It is not a fix - it is a workaround, and maybe it will do for now.

    Hi, my laptop (DV7 - 4260ca) has a slot identical to the current my HDD is screwed, but I can't seem to find where to connect a second hard drive. There are screws and everything like that, except the spot to plug. I couldn't look hard enough, however. I want an SSD, but if there is nowhere where to plug into it, there is no point.

    Hi, Jeremy:

    You can call HP and see what they have to say about SATA II/III, but I think that if your laptop is not under warranty you could get pay for technical assistance.

    I have never installed a secondary HARD drive in the notebook, so I don't know what port you plug the other end of the cable in.

    The problem is there are 2 configurations dv7 is why there are 2 different cables to the HARD drive.

    I think this post might answer your question: read the info of the carloprimo. It shows where to connect the other end of the cable into your model.

    Finally, it is my pleasure to be able to help the people on the forum free HP.

    I am very pleased that you appreciate my help, and that's enough thank you.

    Best regards


  • opening a computer laptop dv7-3080us

    I have a Pavilion laptop dv7-3080us.  I need to open the hard drive bays to install a new drive.  I also need to open the whole, to blow clean the fans, that the unit is prone to overheating, these days.

    The problems are:

    (1) when I try to open the Bay, turn the screw, but does not come, and the cover of the bay cannot be deleted

    (2) for the opening of the whole affair, after removing what I thought were all the appropriate screws, the case does not open

    It is possible that the point 1 a of the implications of the point 2.  If the lids bay (and memory) you have to remove first, that would explain the point 2.

    Someone at - it suggestions?  I really want to get the case open and cleaned before the aircraft is damaged without repair possible.

    Thank you!



    To make sure that that you have to do first, copy the second manual from the following link:

  • HP Photosmart C4780 all-in-One: Photosmart C4780 will not install on laptop dv7 Pavilin

    My C4780 will not install on my computer laptop dv7. I downloaded the current software on the HP site and tried to use the disc that came with the printer. In both cases, that the installation program begins to run, goes through four steps and when it is installing updates, it disappears from the screen. I do not understand that because it has been installed and operating at once through my wireless network and still work on my desk. I totally uninstalled all the software before you try to reinstall. I even checked to ensure that the appropriate records were in place after not install for the first time. I went through this about six or eight times, try different things each time. I also disabled my antivirus (Panda Cloud AV) and that made no difference. At this point, I'm out of ideas and really need help. I also read some relevant posts in this forum without good results. I need help in the worst way! Thanks in advance for any help.

    Sorry it took so long to get back but things have been hectic. I really believe that my problem was one or more files that are damaged somewhere, so I took the easy way and installed Windows 10. After that I installed the printer and everything is fine now. But I really appreciate your help.

  • to get a hard drive

    Hi I have a laptop compaq presario CQ50 - 228-CA. Told me to HB to get this hard drive: Hewlett - Packard (HP) 613070-001-250 GB 7.2 K RPM SATA Hard Disk Drive (HDD). This hard drive is expensive at a certain site online. I want to get a hard drive cheaper on another site with this info: 250 GB SATA 5400 RPM hard drive for Compaq Presario CQ50 - 228 CA CQ56-219WM CQ60-420US and I want to know if that hard drive work on my laptop? He mentions my model but HB make me feel that I have to enter the first hard disk that I have just mentioned. I never bought a hard drive before. I want to trasfer all data, including windows vista of the old hard drive hard drive with a USB adapter, again but I do not know what USB adapter, I'm supposed to buy? Thank you

    You can buy any 2.5 inch width 9.5 mm SATA HDD thickness of and there are now some very good deals out there. I suggest that go you to and order one (you'll like 3 days). and get also a "drive upgrade kit" which will be cloning software and the cables you need.

    My humble recommendation:

    320 GB 7200 RPM drive to 65 dollars shipped:

    Kit upgrade with external caddy and also cloning software:

    With refunds, it comes to a total of $100 and your laptop will go faster, to start.

    This manual (page 10) shows how to do the installation:

    Repeat: You don't have to buy from HP or use a hard drive HP part number. They are generic standard of the industry.

  • I can't get my hard drive to recognize that I have a CD in the tray

    I can't get my hard drive to recognize that I have a CD in the tray.  I can only open and view those that I already copied. Why?

    There are a number of possibilities here.

    1. assuming you have tried several different blank CD (if you are fairly confident that the problem is not the media), it is possible that the laser "burning" the recordable CD is dead. Because this isn't the same laser that reads the CD, you can always read but not write.  If this is the case, the only solution is to buy a new CD player (not expensive).

    2. your CD drive (E :) shows when you click on my computer?  I think it does, or you did that you can open and view copies of files, you have already copied to other CD.

    3. open Device Manager (start > run > devmgmt.msc > OK)

    • Expand the category of CD-ROM/DVD-ROM readers by clicking on the + sign to the left
    • Y at - it a warning next to the entrance icon?
    • Double-click the entry for your CD player

    2. What would you say (at the bottom) under "use of the device.
    • Close the Properties window and Device Manager

    4. open my computer, right-click on the icon for your CD drive and select Properties

    • Is there a tab "recording"?
