Question about HP Pavilion dv5-1004nr Notebook
The lap top has gotten so hot it had burned my legs. The system continues to over heat and shut down. The fan runs all the time.
As for the overheating cause, I can only say if you've ever added on hardware to it maybe the current fan is inadequate for the job. As a solution I would see about getting an upgraded, fan. Or buy a cooling stand, they plug into a USB and your laptop sits on top of it. Hope this helps.

Tim, have you ever gotten to the bottom of your problem with this unit? I have one of these in my shop. When it was first brought to me it would not boot at all, blank screen, cap lock, and scroll lock lights would blink. I saw one post here stating this was indicative of a bad motherboard. However I was able to get it to boot after using a live cd. I now have the exact same concern you have, boots, runs for about 4-5 minutes and overheats and shuts down. I have yet to disassemble it to see if there's anything prohibiting airflow, but was pondering the idea of the motherboard preventing full voltage to the cooling fan?
