Re: HP keeps overheating
Turn it off and blow all of the vents with a can of air. Next make sure no one is using the laptop on things like pillows, couches, etc. Things that would cover the air vents causing an overheat. If it is still overheating double check to ensure that all of the fans work (they all should kick on at some point before overheating). If they aren't a fan may need replacing.
