    Friends my dv6165 is become very slow and lags and doesn't respond while opening apps and boot time is 2-3 mins. It's become very frustrating and my father is also unable to use the pc.
    Can u pls suggest if I need to install an ssd? Pls provide a link for the same and some video link how to install the same. I know this is a stupid question but I'm not techy. Does the laptop have a slot for ssd or I need to remove the hdd and then install the hdd? Thx.

    You can either use both HDD and SSD just like me by removing the DVD drive or just SSD drive on the slot of your previous SSD. I recommend you to buy Samsung EVO SSDs if you're having good budget or Kingston SSD if you want 240GB in 5k.
    Arrange some repairman to put that SSD and remove that old HDD. You can use that old HDD as external drive just by casing.

    Thanks for the answer. Can you please suggest which ram I can use to expand my existing 4gb ram. The link if possible from Amazon or flipkart

    Hi all,
    I have been stalking this post for a while.
    My 2012 vintage dv6 6165tx has its battery on its last legs. Could somebody point me to a replacement battery for it without breaking the bank? Any help is much appreciated. My work keeps me from digging deep on this, so this is my "Go To Guy"...Thanks in advance

    Had bought this battery from ebay about 4 months ago. Working fine. Battery backup is 4400 mAH but still lasts for about 1.5 hours.

    Really good to see this thread active till now. I remember back in 2011 couple of months after India won the cricket world cup ... I was looking to buy a new Laptop which would RUN all medium-high level games for next 4 years..... I was really confused and all i could figure out as an option was Dell inspiron ( I remember i did a lot of research on choosing the laptop with best GPU in those days) which had a Nvidia 640m on it. But then it was my luck that couple of days before I decided to place an order online on Dell website, I found this place and particularly this thread. I kept reading all the comments page after page as I was very excited to find something I was really looking for. After reading all the comments (approx. 30-35 pages back then) I finally decided to go for this beast... (the thread started with 6017 model and it was later replaced with 6121tx). I went to nearest store and bought this beast for 50k.


    Since then I have replaced its HDD (Toshiba 640 GB to WD 1TB in 2013, RAM 4 gb to 8 GB 2012 . Recently my stock hynix 4gb got damaged so I got a new corsair Value select 4 GB, 1 new original battery back in 2014, 1 Fan ) A total of around 10k additional in next 5 years.... and I must say it still runs the same as it did back in 2011. (not to forget free Windows 10 pro upgraded now).

    I am facing some problems with new 4gb Ram this one >> (Corsair Memory 4GB DDR3L SODIMM Memory (CMSO4GX3M1C1600C11)) and I have a second ram (Corsair Memory 4GB DDR3 SODIMM Memory (CMSO4GX3M1A1600C11)) previously installed.

    As soon as i installed the new ram... my system starts off well ... it runs for good 15 mins and then suddenly screen starts to flicker with RGB lines and system shuts down. I did some google searches regarding the issue and found that it could be a mismatch of RAM timings or voltages.

    I can see the voltages are different 1.35 and 1.5 volt. Also Tested Latency is slightly different (you can check the specs of both RAM for the above link). Can you suggest what can be the possible reason behind this fluctuations and how can I over come it without replacing RAM.

    I can't find option to under/over volt the RAM in the BIOS menu. Please suggest the best possible solution.

    (P.S. Its been 2 days now and I am no more facing this issue. But I would still like to understand what might be the reason behind this problem. I remember i only swapped the RAM slots and I think that helped.)

    I have no idea what is wrong with my HP DV6-6165tx. Whenever I try to run MS office the temperature gets high as Hell. Forget about gaming (I am afraid that the motherboard might burn if I play power/gfx hungry games on it)!!. I have already cleaned the laptop, part by part, replaced the previously applied thermal paste with Noctua NT-H1 (I had purchased this thermal paste in April 2015 and applied it only twice including this time) and cleared the dust blocked ventilation holes near the fan. But nothing helped. I have no idea what i should do now. Earlier the maximum temperature it used to go was 85-90 but now it crosses 90c even when running simple programs like MS WORD. Kindly help.OVERHEAT.JPG
