HP Laptop Fan Replacement Tutorial


In this guide Guys I will be showing you how to replace the Fan on Your HP Laptop. For this guide I will be using the HP TPN-C126 Laptop. This should also apply to other HP Laptops and brands of Laptops as well.

Replacing a defective Fan in a Laptop can be a great way to extend the life of the Laptop so you can get more useful time from it easily.

If you have direct Questions please ask them below.

When to Change Your Laptop Fan?

These are the main times you will want to change out your Laptop Fan to a new one.

1.Your Laptop is giving a Fan warning on Boot of a failing Fan.

2.Your Fan is producing or making weird grinding noises or noises in general.

3.Your Laptop is shutting down unexpectedly and at random.

How to Find a New Fan for Replacement:

To find a new fan you need to take one from a old device or buy a new one online.

To find the new Fan you will have to search by device model or remove the current fan and match the part number online.

Verify that the Fan you are purchasing match the one that’s taken out from the laptop before buying. Brands often use specific Fan for their devices so a Acer Fan will not work in a HP Laptop. Even among the same brand Laptops there can be differences so try to find a exact match.

Its smart to take pictures and of the Fan in your device and look at the connector, screw placement holes, size and design from the online listing.
