All the HP laptop computer followers I’ve ever had fail sooner or later, leading to overheating and the main cause for that is that laptops suck in tons of dust over the months. I’d tear it down step-by-step, all the best way down below the motherboard, watch some videos on youtube for your laptop model, clean out all mud and every part (deep clean), clear off old paste and reinstall new paste on the cpu and the gpu heatsinks, replace the fan, change hdd with ssd when placing it all back together, lastly set up Linux, do not hassle with Home windows, my Linux choice is Kubuntu 14.04.three, however that’s your decision to make.
Nonetheless do not understand why I have misplaced my quiet fan setting that got here with the laptop computer – only have regular and velocity enhance. Lint and dust accumulation prevents air from flowing across the cooling fan blades and causes the fan to work more durable and the laptop to get hot.
I am writing this using an old 2006 or so HP dv7 1245dx laptop that got here with Vista, has Win7 and Kubuntu dualbooting, upgraded with an ssd. A cooling pad uses followers to either blow cooler air towards the laptop computer or warmer air away from the laptop computer to decrease the ambient temperature. With out hearing it, I might guess that the fan is just not faulty, it’s simply meeting the cooling calls for of the CPU and video chip.
I wouldn’t say that simply because it hasn’t happened earlier than you’ll be able to assume it isn’t regular noise. If there’s a chipset driver for a fan, one can adjust the fan velocity from there. OK, I didn’t get a blister, but I am afraid to place this laptop computer with a kludged energy connector in a household dwelling. Your lap obstructs the laptop’s vents and causes the machine to construct up warmth, and laptops and not using a fan might get too heat for comfy use on an individual’s lap.
