Start by finding an air-compressor and blowing all the dust out of your vent exhausts (any gas station should have it). If this doesn't help, then chances are that you have a hardware issue (contact HP if it's on warranty, problem is not unique and tons of people are having it). CQ60 are not the best with heat dissipation, so long term overheating might've damaged one of the motherboard components (most likely GPU).
