A guide on taking the laptop apart is here - Over heating is noted in these models -
Clean the inside and the fan area to help with the problem -

Thank You -

Along the same lines, make sure the fan is actually functioning. If the fan has gone out, it will overhead quickly. It's an easy replacement, and you can probably get the part on eBay.

Follow the first two suggestions given by Noknojon followed by checking as stated by Sector17.

Once you have the immediate problem resolved. A couple simple tips to help keep any\all lap tops running cooler.

Never use them on your lap. They named these PC`s very poorly. <_<

Lap tops by nature run warmer then most towers due to their compact design. The cooling\fan vents are located on the bottom and\or sides. Using them on any soft surface, your lap, bed, cushioned furniture, carpeted floor will only decrease the already poor air circulation by restricting or totally blocking these vents.

And, as already noted by Noknojon, heat is a known problem with this as well as other HP lap tops. But not exclusive to HP.

A lot of times when I am working on a laptop that runs hot I sumply prop it up with two doorstops, one on each side.

Thats a low tech solution to a high tech problem :busy:
In the beginning there was the command line.

:thumbup2:

Many lap tops used to come with two little fold down legs. One at either rear corner. Did wonders for cooling.

When working on a clients lap top. Even on my hard bench I will prop up the back as well.

One of these days I`ll move into the 21st century and get a cooling pad. :lol:
