if your fan spins frequently it means your computer is getting hot frequently.

do some cleaning (remove dust and other particles that might cover the vents and heatsink or simply use a cooling pad.

EDIT:
monitor your temps using NHC or Speedfan.

taddd5555,

Have you changed any of the power management settings either in Windows or your laptop's BIOS setup? I ask because if you disable the CPU C4 function, this will cause the CPU to run at FULL POWER, which can cause the fan to run more frequently.

Check out this support document on HP's support site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...roduct=3308899.

Also, check out this tech document about cleaning your PC:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...roduct=3308899

It's possible that the fan vents have become dirty, preventing the fan from properly cooling the CPU.

Has this always been an issue with your laptop or did it just start happening?

- John

taddd5555,

Only change the C4 state if your PC has an Intel Processor. If your PC has an AMD processor - DO NOT change the C4 state.

To check on your PC's processor type and change the C4 state, there are detailed instructions at:

taddd5555,

AMD processors in general run at higher temperatures than their Intel counterparts.

I did some searching and found this thread (scroll down on the page and read reviews from other users):

http://laptoping.com/hp-pavilion-dv9...announced.html

If nothing is physically blocking the fan vents on your laptop - you may have a defective fan or heatsink in your laptop. Not sure how old your PC is or if it's still under warantee - but I'd contact HP or the retailer where you purchased it from to see if you have any replacement or repair options based on the machine's warantee status.

I just replaced mother board of my laptop becuase of video problem. Anyway I fired the laptop with the new mother board, but the fan shut down immediately and the LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys keeps on blinking constantly. What have I done wrong ?

Any help would be much appreciated.
