Laptop's Video card fan not spinning...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a HP zv5000 series notebook but the fan for the videocard never spins, so the video card is constantly overheating. I sent it in to HP through BestBuy (where i baught it) and they replaced the CPU and videocard heatsinks. I feel as if it is in a quiet/ office mode, because it is real quiet. The BIOS are useless and are very restricted. I have put pics in, is there anyway i can put a aftermarket fan in there? BTW its still under warrenty so i dont want to do anything drastic.

Send it back again!

E-Mail HP, tell them you want it sorted.

There's no point in voiding your warranty.

I have the zd8000 (17in version of that basically) and the middle fan only comes on only if things get REALLY hot in there, basically the whole laptop is a piece of crap and i would just not worry about it unless you are serioulsy having crashin issues.

I just had the mobo replaced, other then that i've had: both heatsinks replaced, Had to reload windows FIVE times because of the blue screen of death, bought a stick of 512 RAM but it gives me the blue screen of death, i had a defective battery (part of a 300,000 battery recall) which shot my mobo, and WLAN and LAN failing. My dad says i should of gotten a new one by now because the one i have is a lemon. I have sent it in like four times for the fans and only the fourth time did they do anything about it. I baught the warrenty for like $300 (3yr) and the mobo was $450 alone. I bet BestBuy hates me, but this laptop cant even run the AquaZone screen saver for more than 3 minutes before it restarts from heat problems.
Would unscrewing the base where the heatsinks are void my warrenty? I atleast want to find out if i would beable to one day in 08', beable to put a different heatsink on it.
Remonster: it crashes all the time from heat.
