Hi, I have a Hp G60 with an AMD Athlon Dual-Core QL-64, bought in 2009, and I've been having some problems with overheating in the previous 5-6 months. Usually after two or three hours of use, it feels really hot and it hibernates, and if I try to turn it back on immediately, it just goes back to hibernate. Then, I would have to lie it upside down, and wait some time before it cools down again. Sometimes, it also BSODs. Therefore, does anybody have any solution for that?

I'll bet the fan is racing too. The heatsink needs to be cleaned. Around where I am it would most likely be a $99 charge for that.

To remove the fan for a proper cleaning requires a complete disassembly.I suggest Not running so hot that it hibernates to protect itself. That is definately shortening the laptops lifespan.

I had to change the fan on a HP G7 that someomne had blown air into it to clean it and dislodged a hunk of crud off of the heatsink that jammed the fan. The owner supplied the fan so I changed it anyway as who knew what damage/wear had been done by the high speed running prior to it jamming.
