How to Fix HP dv6 Laptop Overheating or Loud Fan Noise Fix in Easy Steps

Vampire Cookie says:

Your bitching about 89c my dv6 gets to 96 and even automatically shuts down
this has happened while gaming ONLY yet to discover any crashes while
browsing internet. Please do not take “Bitching” as a offensive word I used
it to its dramatical meaning…

Darryl Landry says:

Great job. Only thing is, you should have unscrewed the fan and cleaned the
heat sink, that way you make the most of your time spent breaking down the
whole unit.

Was the laptop model DV6 4008tx because I am about to get this laptop clean
it but there are many models out there but not sure which one is the right

Isaac Palka says:

My fan was SO loud that it became a distraction during meetings. I followed
your tutorial which was great. I didn’t find any dust or anything to clean,
but somehow after I put my laptop back together, everything was quiet
again! Not sure why, but thank you for the great video!

Rhonda Hofer says:

Thank-you for that. Step by step Instruction really helped!

epytel says:

THANK YOU, you’re instructions were great. One important correction is
for users to take off the 4 little screws to take off the fan since the
inner grill of the vents that you can’t see from the outside will be
absolutely clogged with dust after years of use. It takes a few extra
minutes but this missing step is very important.

Gamunu Karunarathna says:

Thank you very much..! This was very helpful for me :)

darko vladimirov says:

fantastic tutorial but you needed to show us the whole assembly because the
hardest thing for me is removing that flex cables an putting them back!

David Jo says:

Your mobo is on a towel sir. Static electricity accumulates on towels and
carpets which in turn will fry your circuitry.

very helpfull!

saved me alot of money so i diddnt have to buy my mom a new computer haha

Marji Zintz says:

Hi! I did it!!! I don’t think I’d have attempted dismantling my laptop
had it not been for you and this video, so I want to say THANK YOU!!!! You
gave me the confidence I needed to plunge into this very difficult job.
And, now my laptop is working nearly as well as it did when I first bought
it. I simply can’t thank you enough.

In fact, the reason that I chose to use your video to help me through this
is that I have the exact same computer (Pavilion dv6-6c10us), and this is
the only video that shows exactly how to dismantle THIS computer.

Having gone through the job, using your video as a coach (I used my
husband’s computer and played the video, pausing it as I completed each
step), there are some observations and questions I have, as well as some
suggestions for other folks like me, who’d like to tackle this job and save
themselves upwards of $125 or even $150 to have someone else do it.

1. First, I suggest that people watch the whole video from beginning to
end to understand what you’ll be doing and what you’ll need to have handy.
Some things I found to have handy were: an assortment of small phillips
and flat-head screwdrivers (it was immensely helpful to magnetize the tip
of the phillips-head screwdriver by running across a magnet in one
direction; apparently, it’s magnetized just enough to hold the screw but
not enough to mess with the components); a pad and pencil to write down
everything you do in the order you do it, like leaving a trail of
breadcrumbs for the return trip; an assortment of small containers, like
small dixie cups, bowls, coasters, or even an egg carton to hold the
various screws from the various places and a way to label the containers; a
clear head; plenty of time; and a shot or two of whisky (just kidding about
the last one). Also, a strong light (like a halogen), a loupe for seeing
small things, a comfortable and uncluttered work space, and relaxing music.

2. I noticed that you were VERY thorough in explaining some things, but
other things you did off-camera, and I really had no idea how to do them.
For example, when taking out the hard drive, I had to remove the four
screws that secure the hard drive itself in its carrier and take it out of
the carrier before I was able to disconnect the cable. I didn’t know that,
and it took me a while to sort that out. There were several other things
like that. Sometimes you’d indicate that something needed to be done, but
you’d have done it already off camera, and so there was no way to know HOW
to do that thing. I wonder if in future videos, rather than doing parts of
the job off-camera, you might consider just speeding up the segments so
that a person can potentially see everything you’re doing and can perhaps
pause or slow down the segments themselves to see what’s involved in what
you’re doing. That would have been enormously helpful to me!

3. When it comes to cleaning the actual fan, you mentioned that your fan
blades didn’t look too dirty and so there was no need to open the housing
and clean inside. My fan blades didn’t look too dirty, either, but I’m
glad I went ahead and opened it up, because there was a LOT of dust up
against the fins of the heat sink that didn’t even come out with blowing
backward into the fins from outside. The only way I’d have known about
that dust (and would have been able to clear it) was by dismantling the fan
housing itself. I recommend to anyone whose computer is overheating and
running loudly, if you’re going to go as far as dismantling your laptop to
deal with the problem, take the extra step and dismantle the fan housing,
too, even if the fan blades don’t look so bad. There’s dust in there you
won’t see until you open up the housing.

4. Finally, here’s my big question. 🙂 Your excellent coaching only
went so far as taking apart the computer, but we’re pretty much left alone
to put the thing back together ourselves, and that was not the easiest
thing to do. In fact, I had gotten it all back together, but it wouldn’t
turn on, so I had to take it all apart again and re-reassemble it. The
second time was the charm ~ all except the touchpad, which is no longer
working. It’s not the end of the world because I don’t use the touchpad
all that much, and I happen to have a USB touchpad that is working fine.
I’m in no mood to open the computer up again so soon, but I guess I will
at some point in the near future, and I wonder if you could tell me what I
missed. I obviously disconnected the touchpad, or it somehow got
disconnected, and I don’t know what to look for to reconnect it. Could you
tell me? How far will I have to go in the dismantling process before I can
reconnect my touchpad? And, how exactly do I do that?

Again, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your kind
help and encouragement. My computer is as quiet as a … well, I hate to
say it, but “mouse,” it’s working nearly perfectly, processing quickly,
quietly, and efficiently; it’s practically like new, and you’re the reason

With gratitude and kindest regards,

johnrb88 says:

I really appreciate the effort you have gone to in making this video. A
couple of tips for you and anyone watching this:
1) Make sure the fan unit is well AWAY from the rest of the laptop
components when cleaning & brushing, or dust will blow back over the
motherboard and may cause damage. If you look closely at this point in your
clip you can actually see the dust particles clouding in the air
2) Use compressed air to carefully blow out any remaining dust in the fan
and also around the various parts, before reassembly
Otherwise, well done on the job!

jedi22300 says:

Thank you this drastically decreased my temperature. I would also like to
add more ram. What are some good ones I can buy? (with links to the product

david gibson says:

Thanks very much for the video. I have now stripped my dv6 down and cleaned
the fan out!

Emmanuel Jahan says:

Hi Easy Step, i followed your step by step and it solved my noisy fan
issue. Many thanks ;)

djrdan6 says:

Thank you for this great video, I’m eager to try this myself. However, the
problem with my dv6 is that the fan either does not turn on or stays on a
low speed, then the laptop overheats. Would this fix solve the problem in
your opinion?

Elvin181821 says:

how do you remove the SSD after you have removed the 4 screws?

jerod pennix says:

Hi, very nice video. I recently repaired the same model laptop. One
additional step would be to remove the fan from the casing (4 small screws
on the metal cover) and clean the openings to both radiators. On the one I
repaired, the radiators were completely clogged on the inside, stopping the
airflow and causing the computer to overheat.

Kevin Blake says:

My laptop is still making a sound, and grinding sound.

Lucio Ribeiro says:

Now my dv6 notebook is working perfect no overheating anymore.
Great job! Thanks for all your help!

bidelification says:

It gave me enough courage to finally open up my Dv6 (shudder) and cleaned
it out- put that silver thermal paste and closed it back up (whew!)- don’t
know how I did it- but your good video and encourage- got it done, Still
can’t believe- I did it! The tips on using fingernails to take out ribbon
cable is really good- as well as doggie’s helpful comments were fun also!!
Thanks a lot..

Edgar Martinez says:

http://youtu.be/_GxPN3p3GuQ can you fix this!?!?

dreamerartworx says:

I see that you aren’t afraid to kill your laptop since you use no ESD
protection whatsoever. ANY cloth is bad when you are about to work with
electronics, and it looks like you have placed the laptop on a towel.
That’s one of the worst things you can use.

What the kind of grease is good to use for?

Bunglezip2 says:

Just followed your instructions on my identical laptop. Many thanks for
that. Its all fixed now.
