With this illustrated disassembly guide you’ll be able to take apart a HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop and remove the system board. The main reason for removing the system board is accessing and replacing the cooling fan witch is located on the bottom side of the system board.
Sequence showing an HP DV5000 Laptop being dismantled. The process is aimed at the rotten Sunon GC055515VH fan, which had become horribly noisy, rattling on its spindle.
There is no easy access to the cooling fan from the bottom of the HP Pavilion dv5000 series laptop, you’ll have to take the whole thing apart.
In the step 3 you’ll have to remove all screws from the bottom. I believe the author forgot to mention that in his description.
You can use this disassembly guide for removing and replacing DVD drive, keyboard, LCD assembly, system board and other major laptop components.
The cooling fan is a part of the heat sink assembly witch could be found on eBay.
