The laptop is a HP pavilion dvnr. Well, I just spent an afternoon preparing my kitchen counter as an operatory, procuring the blow torch with which to use as the prime instrument and began disassembling as shown above. After using the towel trick wrap the laptop in a towel, turn on minus hard drive, leave for one hour to allow system to get VERY hot — hot enough to remelt solder on graphics core and fix problem , I dismantled my laptop using your guide to replace the default thermal pad on the graphics chip with a copper spacer from eBay and some AS5. Didn’t find what you were looking for? I think I have a similar problem, but I have a HP dvea. Please advice…thanks…and your website is great!!

Any suggestions for that? I just want to clean the fan and I have to remove nearly all the parts.

Probably when you removed the keyboard cover you disconnected the microphone cable. Actually, I found Lubuntu worked better on this old machine than Ubuntu.

Yesterday I followed all the steps to clean the fan, but when I finish to ensamble everiting the laptop doesnt give any signal, jp turns on and the fan runs, but not beep, not bios and not video.

If specs looks similar except speed and maybe cash memoryI think you can upgrade it. I have not had a chance to try booting from a cd yet but I will. If I forgot to vidoe the audio board shown in the step 22 like you suggested, will this cause my onboard speakers not to work? I checked it and everything is on right place.


Take a closer look at all connectors before disconnecting them. Find out if the adapter outputs correct voltage. The laptop comes on with no problem, except for the screen is faint, I can see the home screen just not as it once was.

The computer is now working great. Due to busy schedule I was not able to get it replaced and was using the laptop on AC power every time. Also, try removing memory modules one by one and the laptop with each memory module separately. Heated my kitchen oven to degrees. Do you see network adapters Ethernet and Wireless in there? I still on occasion forget them and I have replaced too many mobos in these to count.

If the laptop shows activity, disconnect the video cable from the motherboard. I have a dv which is a bit different from the one being used here. When you up headphones, the plug pushes on the connector and the sound switches from external to internal mode. I guess there could be a problem with the hard drive and the LED is on all the time because the laptop is trying access the hard drive. P I do not see them on the pictures either. Just remove the drive and reinstall it back.


When i turn on my laptop the screen is white with pixilated verticle colored lines. Just blow air into the fan grill on the bottom until all dust is gone and test the laptop again.

In my dv, there is a wireless provision but it does not have bluetooth facility.

In situations, not even the nouveau driver is used, just some VGA default, so combine that with unity, and things behave badly. As each screw is extracted place it in its respective place on the print out.

Any suggestions would b appreciated. There is no data cable between the DVD drive and motherboard.

Check connection between the video cable and motherboard. Only showing my C: So the DV I have had only one year has become terribly noisy and the fan runs so loud I can hardly concentrate.
