  1. Well my computer has got an overheating problem underneath it and I have no idea how to fix it.

    It have happened the hole entire time I have had this Computer.

    My computer works well in other aspects apart from that.

    Thanks

    Hello Reuben13,
    Some more information would be great due to your computer overheating.
    Try running PC Wizzard, that monitors the CPU temperature and things like GFX card, ect

    Here is the link for the download to PC Wizzard :http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php
    Please report back with the temperature reading of your CPU, HDD ect.

    Also Try looking at the back of your laptop/computer for blocked/clogged air vents that aren't getting proper airflow. or stickers that are covering those vents.

    Are you putting your desktop/laptop on a cool surface?
    please let me know.
    thankyou

    okay, maybe you could be a little bit more specific about the Tempreature reading on the CPU HDD AND GPU,
    try cleaning out the laptop blowing out the just with some compressed air.
    and if you know what your doing, try applying some more thermal paste under the bottem of the CPU.

    Dude,

    i have the same notebook. I was getting super high temps. I sent it back to HP and they told me the presario CQ50 and CQ60 models were having their heatsinks dislodged in some of the models due to something. So they fixed mine and it runs nice and cool now.You might wanna check if your warrant is good.
