help with laptop fan!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
so last night me and my friend were playing a pc game and all of a sudden his laptop overheated and crashed on him. he tryed today and it did the same thing. he said his fan was making some weird noise. he has never blown it out before so it might be that. im thinking the fan needs to be replaced to since it's making a weird noise.

he has an hp pavilion g7

should i contact hp for him and request a new fan? or should he get one of those things that goes under the laptop that has fans in it.

thanks!

Yeh get rid of the dust, also if it's over a year old replace the thermal paste as the stuff I normally find in laptops is not very good and dries out and doesn't do it's job

Also make sure not to block and intake/exhaust vents when using it

my friend says it sits on a desk with nothing covering it. i don't think im going to replace the paste because i don't want to take the whole thing apart. if i mess up il have to buy him a new one. i think just removing the dust will do,

(im 15. i probably can replace the paste i just don't want to take the chance as im in the middle of my first build and can't afford to buy a laptop.

Sure man, can of air does a good job of getting it all out, check it first though, can you see through from the fan to the exhaust at the side? Does it look clear? Or full of dust

If it looks pretty clear it could very well be paste problem more than dust. Use a temp monitor program and check temps in a game then clear the dust and do it again, if you see drastic change (10-20C) then you prob have fixed it, if it only change 1-3C then dust is not the problem

If you take it to a local computer shop and ask them to clear the dust and replace the thermal paste it wouldn't cost much

On many laptops I have cleared dust and changed thermal paste and dropped temps 20C+

il definetly try that. i think it's dust though because the problem didn't gradually build up. one day he just said his fan started making noises. il have to take a look. could you tell me how much it would be to get the dust removed and thermal pace replaced?

Depends on the place. GEEK SQUAD? $100 lol I'm not joking. I say a Local, Repetitive PC shop and have them clean her and Re-Paste her...$25. Heck if you lived close to me, i would say i could do it for Free wink.gif
