Hi, my HP Pavilion DV6000 series laptop overheated and damaged the graphics card. The tech says that it is probably not worth repairing the laptop as the card itself costs around $300 plus the labor. He also said that the card is part of the motherboard, so I'd have to replace the motherboard as well.
In addition to the cost, he said that this laptop series has inherent serious problems with overheating.
So, in his opinion, the new card could get fried in the following six month after the install.
Has anybody else tried fixing their overheated HP Pavilion DV6000 series with a damaged graphics card?
Is it worth repairing overheated HP Pavillion DV6000 series?
HP Pavilion DV6000 series laptop has a great problem with overheating. Although sometimes the heat management of the computer has been pointed out, the processor gets exceedingly hot. This problem is manifested in several symptoms. The mechanical or hinge break is the most obvious. But more despicable is the total motherboard failure which is usually preceded by wireless failure (AMD models) and/or Video issues (Both AMD and Intel).
So, HP Pavilion DV6000 series laptop is not good at all. One of my cousins used that and got the same problem. Then he replaced motherboard but within only 4 months it again got spoiled. So there is no luck. So don't repair it rather I'll suggest you to go for a new one.
