    All laptops suffer from heating more than desktops do. HP laptops are no better or worse than other laptops concerning heat. If you are concerned, go out and buy one of those cooling platforms for laptops. If you continue to get memory errors, check your memory using Memtest86. Let it run for 7 or more passes

    well i must report that after days of looking things up i found out it was a comon fault with this model it over heats and the vid chip lifts off from the motherboard ( shame on hp for cutting corners) lol.
    oh and yes i did fix it
    thanks for the help

    Okay Zag,
    I have heard of the HP video chip trouble but in all my HP laptop repairs I have never run into this. It still is a good idea to invest in one of those laptop cooling platforms rather than using your lap, carpeted floor or bed without the platform
