Hi,
Not sure if this is the right section, apologies if it isn't.

I have a HP Pavillion DV6300 running windows 7 that i just put a new screen in and checked the fan wasn't clogged - problem hasn't arised from those issues but has been present before this fix.

My laptop seems to be running extremely hot, so hot it burns to touch it at points and the fan goes crazy loud - im stumped as to why
I am having an issue making an update - but the problem was still present before this issue.

I am running a 3rd party theme - nothing heavy, no programs needed to have this theme activated etc

My computer is also running extremaly slow - i have had 4gb of ram run quicker than what my laptop runs.

All genuine windows and microsoft also.

There was a class-action suit on the HP and Dell computers because of overheating due to defective GPU's and chipsets. I am not sure if your model is included though. It would have to have an Nvidia GPU but I believe yours may not because you have an intel processor.

 

Does the computer overheat with the battery out? There was a recall for batteries due to overheating. The 6300 is listed further down on the page.

I have not taken the battery out and tried, i know it must be connected to a charger because the battery does not hold charge though

Is there any way i can fix this issue for cheap? Buying a new laptop is out of my budget, but i do have the skillset to install better parts.

Upon further checks, my battery is not affected by the recall list/serial number, i have used laptops with intel processors before without an issue like this.

I should also mention i have paid for a clean in a computer shop to guarantee it wasn't dirty/dusty.

Please run the laptop without the battery

Run www.speccy.com and report back on what's running hot and what temperatures are

Laptop is running at its coolest upon taking this image, i am starting to think its a case of the battery. Will take another image when it spikes again. I should also make mention it is on the left hand side it gets extremly hot, the fan is on this side and charging port on the opposite. Fan is cleanfydhle.jpg

Because you had the computer cleaned, I am not sure what other thing can be done other than to use a cooling pad. Other people on the Forum with more experience with these may be able to recommend a partiticular model. I would stay with those that had the best reviews from customers.

 

Edit: Because your battery does not hold a charge, it's possible it overheats because you are trying to charge through a dead battery. Maybe I am wrong though.

It wouldn't surprise me if you will see some higher temperatures when the computer uses system resources to run whatever you normally run on your computer.

You can also call up task manager and view the performance tab
