HP Pavilion Laptop Fan

by Jayme Gutierrez

Today my laptop core temp reached 95¬ļ C!!!!
Strangely, my BIOS doesn’t seem to think that the processor is over-clocking because it’s not automatically shutting down! But 95 degrees MUST be hot enough no?
The strange thing is that even after updating the BIOS, it still lets it get this hot!!

So anyway, I think that it’s time to open up the back and give the fan a little clean.. YEAH RIGHT!!! In order to get to the fan; you need to take the whole thing apart (keys, screen, EVERYTHING!!). Why is there not just a simple panel at the back that you can just unscrew and open!!!???

After looking at videos on youtube of people modifying their own fans and even burning holes in the back plastic, for better ventilation and seeing as my laptop is now out of warranty, I’ve started to think of what mods I could do to mine.
Apart from taking the whole damn thing apart and doing some of the mods that people have suggested, I’m also going to see if I can cut a hole in the back piece and fit some sort of home made removable panel, where the fan is, to be able to access it easier for future cleaning..

I start tomorrow… wish me luck!

  1. Verdad Jayme, las HP Pavillion son basura. La mi se apagaba por el calor, con un secador de pelo limpié las rejillas de costado y abajo y sigue andando por un par de meses. Si tocas con el guitar rig es un peligro que se apague en medio de una cancion. SUmado a eso la mia es Turion AMD, el RK tira ruidos por todos lados. Lamentable.

    Saludos!!!, muy buenos los videos!!!

    Hey, thanks for your comment!
    I’m thinking of doing a video about how to open your hp pavilion, in order to get to the fan and give it a proper clean out! Also some modifications that I’ve done, in order to improve the cooling system!
    So stay tuned for that!
