Good morning,

I have an HP laptop. When I turn it on, it powers up fine, but after about ten minutes it gets very hot on the bottom. Someone suggested a chill-pad.
I tried that, but it is still very hot. If I try and plug it into wall power while it is on, the plug on the cable into the computer gets so hot that it actually melts. I have gone through three charger cables.

Is this a problem that can be repaired or is it now an anchor for my boat?

Any help would be appreciated...

Can you remove the battery and plug it back in and run without the battery ? Is it any better? Have you checked to see if your laptop was part of the battery recall?
Also try blowing out the vents with a can of compressed air

I hadn't thought about unplugging the battery. Good idea! I'll try the compressed air as well....
I did check on the battery recall. It was not included.
Thanks
