I have an HP Pavilion g7. When I first got the laptop, I could play games like World of Warcraft and run programs of similar pull.


Now the fan taxes really hard blowing out all kinds of hot air. I have taken it apart and dusted it etc.

If I run programs like Photoshop, Minecraft, or even video playing software without an external fan attached it shuts off saying it has reached over 90 degrees.

Sometimes the external fan doesn't even prevent it.


I have attached a photo of the cooling system to this post in case there's something obviously wrong with it that I have missed.

I have a HP G6 but didnt have heat issue.

But  i cleaned it out 100% and applied new thermal paste on CPU and graphics GPU.

Reset Power Options to Default and after adjusted to my liking.

So try the Thermal Paste as the first step , and ensure fan is working to specs.

If that doesn't work the next quick fix is to either elevate it (chuck it on some books while running), or buy a cooling pad to put your laptop on.
