Hi everyone !
I have an old Dv7 laptop and I know its known for heating issues but im facing a unique situation. Over the years I have never have any issue , only this week I have noticed it over heats. and on further observation I can see that the fan isnt running most of the time.
However If I tap the laptop's backside with my hand , fan just starts running as it should. I thought its some connection issue and opened it up but coulndt find anything. The fan isnt dirty aswell. Just wont run automatically....
Also on very very rare instances It starts itself aswell.
Is there something I can do myself with it OR just give up and take it to a repair guy ?
Thanks a lot !
