HP DV7-3085DX Shut down at 120 degrees C

I have an HP DV7-3085DX laptop that shuts down when the motherboard reaches around 120 degrees celcius. The fan has been cleaned out and new paste added, new hard drive with a new build of WIndows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, no battery. System works fine when sitting idle. once you start something simple like surfing, it shuts down. I run a fan under the unit and it runs fine as well. What the heck could it be? HELP!!!!!!

    Also I have never seen a laptop without a vent opening directly below the fan. Is this normal?

No solution, but that is really hot. Hot enough to start frying other components. Eventually it will.

You need to install windows 7 (32 bit) not 64. To change to 64 you have to make internal changes and updates to your notebook. Your notebook is set up for 32 bit systems.

Pilot and burner light then gas shut off model 7900

How many degrees before it reaches desired temp, does it shut off? A thermostat is designed to shut the furnace off a couple/ few degrees before it reaches set temp. It has what is called a heat anticipater, which shuts the burner down, and lets the blower use the remaining heat from the heat exchanger to bring it up to desired temp making it more efficient. If it is more than a few degrees, replace the thermostat. You can jump out the red and white wires to confirm the faulty thermostat. If by doing this, the furnace never shuts down, until you separate the red and white wires. That confirms a faulty thermostat. Hope this helps someone.

Check your processor heat sink and fan. It may be clogged with dust. Clean the heat sink and fan with an unused paint brush and use slightly wet cotton buds in cleaning the fan blades to remove the dirt.

If the unit is new and you still have that option to take it back, I would because this could also be a system board or power supply problem. In our company we use Lenovo and that product works well.

Hp laptop shuts itself down

Laptops are designed (by software) to shut themselves off as a protection measure. The most common problem is high temperatures. Do you hear your fan racing while you are using it? Do you sit your laptop on soft surfaces (like the bed or carpet floor) while using it? Do you smoke around your laptop while using it? These are common things that cause high temperatures on your laptop and will cause it to shut down. May not be your case but just a though. I would take it somewhere or open it up yourself(if you are pass your warranty time ONLY) and clean out the dusk with some air.

Hope this helps!
