Did this video help you?

Kevin Ng: Thank for this video great and helpful and I'm sure that your laptop is pretty same as mine which is pavilion dv7-3112sa. Also, do you know which fan that I should buy since I have no Idea which fan to buy since my laptop is overheating :S and keep getting error every time i start the computer which is CMOS error 505 so does that mean i need to Find cmos battery for my model or i can use any cmos battery?

Dmitriy Shibayev: I was waiting for such video for about a year, the repair would cost me about 200 euro. Thank you very much, now i can take care of my laptop myself and do it with your help absolutely confident. Just few questions, could you please write the name of the thermal paste which you have used, and maybe you know where can i buy a new fan in case if my doesn´t work anymore.

EnglishinTx: Great video. Thanks. Is there a way to know for sure that this is the issue causing overheating before I attempt this? I can see from task manger that not much is going on when it overheats - CPU usage is very low yet the fan runs full out like a little jet engine and it shuts down on me. One question on your procedure - don't I need to use some kind of static protection so I don't zap the motherboard? Any recommendations on that? thanks!

5150pb: How did you unplug the screen from motherboard? Does it slide out or pop up?

BabayBunny: I was wondering do you need to put the thermal compound on the GPU and the CPU or just the CPU?

Dalarna Skogen: Hi elegant nice video! I got an dv7-3090eo with a broken cpu fan, is it possible to just replace the fan or do i need to replace the fan with heat sink etc. Best regards

charliezinhu: Great video! i have an older model of this laptop (DV7-1000), but i was looking for an info that maybe you can help me out... I'm having some freezing problems with my laptop, already switched hard drive, so it's not the issue, i'm suspecting of overheating... The CPU uses thermal paste, but the GPU has a space between the heatsink and the chip itself, making mandatory the use of a thermal pad... @15:50 you show the pad, can u tell me the thickness of the pad so i can order new ones to replace on my laptop? also, if it's possible, tell me which thermal pads are the best in your opinión Thanks in advance!

ibrark: You have shown this video in an excellent way. Except at 2 points which is due to camera move is not clear, i give 99 out of 100!! Thank you for this!!

David Ulmer: Gotta say thanks. I've worked on desktops for years, always hated working on laptops because each one is so different in design and so easy to break. I got a DV7 3079wm that I love (although I'm buying an Asus ROG G751 lol), and needed to do this for some time, but I've been scared of breaking the tabs. This helps allot, especially since it's the exact style of mine. This is the best quality in real time full disassembly out there that I've seen in over a year. Kudos

Leonardo Berwian: Thanks Man! Ill have a beer now

Vanessa Lindores: Thank you so much for this. I really appreciate you doing it in real time. I'm a Mom that has (had!) no experience taking apart computers but I wanted to get my old overheating Pavilion working well for my kids to use. We took on the project together and did great until it came time to take off the screen. The last screw ended up stripped. We gave the fan area as good a cleaning with the compressed air as we could and backed out from there. Any suggestions for dealing with this? These tiny screws aren't very forgiving it seems. The computer seems to be working well but I would like to try going all the way. Thanks again. It was fun doing as much as we did.

Abdul Halim: Elegant Mess, I wanted to know if it's possible to upgrade the CPU?

Arno Mulder: Great work, just did my HP pavillion 1220ed little different but i managed. 3 year cleaning! Thanks

HumbleFollowerofJC: I wanted to add to all the thanks on this video! I have the same laptop and it started shutting off due to the overheating. I did a little research and learned of the heatsink(thermal paste issue). Until this my laptop just sat in the closet not sure what to do with it. Found your video and used it to perform the task and the laptop works perfect. So thank you for the detailed video!!! Greatly appreciated sir!! (replaced the thermal paste and cleaned the fan)

Preston Houfek: I also want to thank you for taking the time to show me how to disassemble this computer. This is the only video that shows my actual computer as the others are very different. I have this black screen issue. After trying the heat gun trick on the GPU I still have no picture. Do you have any other suggestions? thanks

Jasmina Ha: thank you so much for this video! since my mother tongue isn't english, I couldn't understand all the materials u mentioned at 1:00. Do u mind listing them for me? Thanks again for sharing ur knowledge with us :)

flyingtrackerz22: Is it the same for a HP pavilion dv7 beatsaudio ?

Andy Lao: which thermal compound should i use to replace my current one for my dv-7 notebook

Hilco Smit: you made a little mistake the keyboard connector the black clip has to stay on you'll have to lift it slightly towards you it works like a hinge if you clip it out you'll damage the hinge

Bill Colak: At 36:50 the black thing that holds the cable and the underneath of the power button kept on falling off so I typed it on (don't judge me) and now my computer is not starting lol

Savatage Kindu: Thank you very much..... What if I use silicon compound instead of arctic silver, would be possible to be OK...?

cbbitstomper: Wanted to thank you for the great video. I used it to replace the fan in my fathers computer and everything went very well. Thank-you once again!

Bill Colak: The white speaker bezle cord and the black hinge keeps falling off on mine :(

Stefana Ionut Valentin: this is DV 6, i have this laptop almost 2weeks

Gera Tokyo: Thank you very much!!!!! you helped me a lot!!

Jimmy Hers: What a first class job! Thank you for your time spent on this issues. Like many others I am having to depend on repairs vs replacement if practical. The tutorial on disassembling and reassembling the HP DV7 Pavilion is by far the best I have seen. As for where to obtain the compounds you used I'll start looking at my local mom & pop hardware store for those or like. I have found these businesses usually offer a higher level of knowledge or experience than the big chains. 

Lisa Featherston: Most have "poo-poo-ed" the dv7 but it was a laptop ahead of its time and when well maintained, continues to provide me performance that supersedes most offered on the retail shelves today. Thanks for providing this video. Well done and very helpful!!!

Slava Harelik: Sorry for stupid question - what is a thermal paste far? Is it just special grease?

pontebuso: What did u use to clean the gpu with the cutip?

NipponEngie: This video was amazingly helpful! I feel a bit better tackling this myself. I noticed you didn't mention anything about grounding yourself in the video. That is the one thing I'm most afraid of when I think about disassembling my laptop. I don't particularly want to invest in a strap or mat, and a lot of tips suggests always touching something metal, in terms of a laptop that seems a little harder to do. What would you suggest? 

Pau Zen: Great job, very informative, most neatly disassembling of a laptop on the web. Deeply appreciate your effort. What is the best thermal paste would you recommend? I have also discovered if you elevate the laptop, or simply put two small foams or objects to jackup the laptop at the back side, the fan runs cleaner and the computer is less susceptible to overheating. The farther away from the surface where the laptop sits the better.

justintime506: Also my thermal grease was replaced a few weeks ago when I took it in. Do I have to replace it again even though it was just done ? 

Dean Hamlin: that was great thank you. good quality and very clear. i was just looking at where the little battery was, i could see it after you popped the cover. i would like to clean the cpu as its 4yrs old and the fan cuts in all the time..

spudbutt33: just finished cleaning the fan and heatsink! The computer is working just as good as it did when i bought it! My laptop was a little different than yours but your video was a fantastic help! keep posting good stuff man

justintime506: Man, you're a life saver this was too scary to go in blind. Thanks a milion! You would think a high maintenance part like the fan would be more accessible....

Nicks Gea: I'll tell you how it all started. One day i tried to turn on the laptop on and this was before I took it apart. It didn't turn on but the lights did just no picture on the monitor. We tried to connect it to another monitor and that didn't work either, I was told it could be the motherboard. So I wanted to figure out how to replace it my self if that was the problem. Any ideas of what the problem might be? By the way if it wasn't for you I wouldn't of done it.

Arthur Hildebrandt: Replaced the fan and screwed down heat sink with new thermal paste. Now how do I reassemble the laptop?

M MOT: Never mind, I figured out you pull up on the little plastic tab and the connector comes off easily. Thanks for the video! Could NOT have done this without the guidance! 

spudbutt33: I have an hp dv7 entertainment model. Is this any different than the one you were changing? I also have some controls above my keyboard that are touch sensitive, is this the same as the one you dis-assembled? my computer has been overheating for about a month now and I was looking for a way to fix it and stumbled upon your video. I am very good with tools and taking things apart but am very techno ignorant. Do you think this is something that is possible for a laptop dis-assembly newb? You make it look so easy in your video, and I know that there has been no maintenance on my lap top in 4+ years. Should I try it?

Nicks Gea: I broke the plastic piece that holds the keyboards wire to the motherboard. :(

Kicki Bengtsen: Hey Elegant Mess, Great Guide! Need your help! i broke both of the black "clips" the one for the power botton, and the one for the entire keyboard. The Connection between the powerbutton and the BUS, is working (ON/OFF) but im having problems with the keyboard buttons, some of the keys arrent working, due to lack of connection i asume. Where do i buy those clips ? if i purchance i new keyboard will those clips also be delivered. thanks for the help anyway. the best option would be if i could make somthing work for the connection by myself

Tiago Sousa: Estive a desmontar o portátil de trabalho para limpar e lubrificar a ventoinha, que não se calava, mesmo sem estar muito quente. Nestas modernices de portáteis, isto equivale a desmanchar o portátil inteiro até ficar com a motherboard na mão. Incrivelmente consegui montar tudo de novo, sem sobrar parafusos, e aparentemente tudo funciona... E ficou silencioso (viva o WD40). Claro que isto só foi possível com o vídeo em anexo :) (mesmo assim o tipo induz em erro na parte de desligar o teclado; se não fosse um colega meu, ainda devia estar a olhar para o teclado na altura de montar...)

P Caswell: First, do I have to take apart the WHOLE laptop to replace the fan? Second, where do I get thermal paste?

Nicks Gea: As soon as I figure how to put my laptop back together I'll let you know if it worked. And then you can help me out. I would really appreciate it, You're awesome man. 

palermoj1: Totally awesome!! Thanks! Your video was right on. Help me disassemble and reassemble my laptop!! Check up the great work. Joe

Denis Rašić: Tnx bro, you helped a lot. It would be great if you made the video after you disassemble it how to put it back together, its was not so easy.

Dustin Bell: I have this same computer... it was overheating and shutting down after 3 years. Someone said it was probably the fan or heatsink. I watched another video but it confused the hell out of me after getting it half apart, so I put it back together and ordered a new one... Now I find this and it's very helpful!! I managed to get it all apart and clean lots of dirt out of the fan... going to get some thermal paste soon then going to TRY and put it back together. If it still overheats and shuts down, what could be the problem then? I know it's due to overheating since it says so when it boots back up. Hopefully this will fix it though.

Nicks Gea: Hello, your video helped a lot! I Never thought I can do such thing. I have a question. My laptop wont turn on, the lights do but nothing appears on the screen I was told it could be the motherboard. Please help

Jacob Swoger: They remixed the soundtrack for this game, and it completely ruins it. The new music is bad enough, but it constantly cuts out. There's actually a level in Ms. Ruby's world that has no sound at all. I was a fan of the original soundtrack and Sanzaru had no right to change it, especially considering that it didn't need an update. They should have at least kept the option in to switch the OST back on. Whoever thought that it was a good idea to needlessly remix the soundtrack needs thrown out of their office window. Plus, the music no longer syncs up with the Ms. Ruby boss fight. Good luck on that one, guys.
