Hi folks!

My HP Pavilion computer has started getting really hot and eventually shuts down on me. I know this is not good. I've had this computer for 3-4 years. Is there anything that I can do to stop it from running so hot or is it time to start shopping for a new computer?

Give the inside of the case a good clean.

After following Budapest's instructions check for any failed fans in the computer case.

Edit: I always forget to check the number of posts. :thumbsup: To the forums
