Anyone know where i can find the layout/internal design of the HP DV6000 series laptops?

Not sure if this is what you are after or if it might contain some info that you will find useful.

Thanks for your reply Questor. I did find that manual after doing a google search and it would be very handy if I had a little more computer knowledge... LoL

I'm looking for something that shows the layout of the inside of the laptop and points out where all the componants are located. This manual has something similar to what I'm looking for but it just doesn't have it layed out to show exactly where everything is... not that I can see anyway.

What I'm trying to do is figure out where the Nvidia chip is located in relation to the motherboard, and also what parts of the laptop might be affected by the heat heat which is generated from this chip. HP is claiming my laptop has physical damage, which I believe is a lie to begin with, but incase I can't PROVE this, I would like to obtain as much knowledge as I can to defend myself.

The GPU/graphics card is generally in the top left corner. Look for where the vent on the bottom of the machine is. This is generally where the GPU and processor are found on the board. If I'm not mistaken, someone said that the GPU and CPU were literally like right next to each other, which doesn't surprise me. It's kind of bad design, imo, especially since both get very hot. To isolate, one would imagine they'd separate them and put a fan on each...

But I'm no hardware engineer.

LoL - apparently, nobody working in the design department at HP is either! Thanks for the info :)

I noticed too that the touchpad for the mouse would also get very hot, has anybody else experienced this? And is this also a symptom of the defective chip?

you might try a google search for the specific part number of your motherboard and see if someone by chance has a pic of it.. You might be able to pick out the CPU and GPU based on that pic then it's just a matter of getting the orientation of the motherboard in relation to the case itself. Look for clues like the position of the AC adapter plug or USB plugs I believe these are integral parts of the mother board.

Angie, probably on the touchpad. Mine got incredibly hot as well. Eventually it shorted out as well.

It has all the information that you are needing. You just have to sort through it.

Also the nvidia gpu chip is usualy in the same area where the memory chips are. So you can simply open that compartment, and take a look. You will see a chip that says "nvidia".

It's that simple.
