Can something like this really happen using shims?

Also why isn't the dv9700 on the list? It has the exact same problem!

I think the DV97XX group use a 7150m instead of a 6150m The copper shim doesn't make any sense since it adds another layer of heatsink grease and could possibly increase the thermal resistance

The core 2 duo is INtel the Semporon is AMD. They should be compatible in software but are not interchangable on the same motherboard.

They are offering a $250 computer to replace my $1800 computer. My computer has a 19" screem, a dual-core AMD, 4 gigs ram, 2X320gig hdd ... and they want to send me that little peice of product?? I didn't even get 2 years from my $1800!!! It broke and was sent  back twice in warrently period, then  died 30 days after.

 

These people at NVidia / HP have screwed us and want to continue screwing us and a judge let them. So much for justice.

There are others that aren't getting anything. I know the feeling. but we used a cooling pad under ours that failed and it went 10 days short of 3 years. It is definitly a heat problem. In so many words it is better than some.

Re: DV6000,DV9000 and others The Nvidia GPU Class action suit Settlement

I just got the replacement Laptop it is a Compaq Presario CQ56-115DX. The basic differences are  compared to the DV9410US a smaller Display 15.6 inch Verses 17 inch), LED backlight instead of a CCFL backlight(A Big Improvement), No media card reader. It runs a lot cooler (I had to run a cooling pad with the DV9410US A Big Improvement) , Windows 7 verses Vista, One less USB port, 3 verses 4, A bigger hard drive 250 GB verses 160 GB, A very different keyboard (No number keypad)..  With Windows 7 you lose Windows Mail. The Disk defragmenter  is improved in that it is faster and shows progress in percent It is a single core processor verses dual core but it is 2.5 GHZ verses 1.8 GHZ, The machine comes with 2 GB of RAM and is expandable to 8 GB. THe DDR3 RAM is cheaper 8 GB  is $ 82  verses $100+ for 2 GB of DDR2  Overall it looks like a good machine. Thanks to Cheryl G for her comments and putting me onto the Class Action Lawsuit.

Re: DV6000,DV9000 and others The Nvidia GPU Class action suit Settlement

Hello CHERYL I was reading the posts and I can not figure out how to get to hp about this problem that I am having with my laptop overheating and malfunctioning, I can use my lap top for more than an hour without the cursor pad burning my fingertips. I wanted to know if the class action lawsuit could do anything for fixing my laptop?

Re: DV6000,DV9000 and others The Nvidia GPU Class action suit Settlement

Take a vacuum cleaner to the air intake port on the bottom usually at the back and suck out any dust/dirt. I would then use a USB powered Fan base there are several out there By Targus and Belkin. I liked the earlier Targus. On my DV9610US it would take the keyboard temperature to where it was just warm to the touch. There is a link on hp.com showing how to clean the cooling path try looking under your model number under frequently asked questions. I just found the heat from blocked vent article  here. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01657439&tmp_track_link=ot_faqs/top_issues/en_u...
