Most any laptop will experience some heat when placed on non-flat surfaces. how old is the laptop? have you contacted hp about it? there has been a known issue with heat due to bad batteries. they will troubleshoot over the phone with you and ask specifically about the battery to make sure its not in their battery recall. i have run into this a few times and what i have done to repair this is update the bios by visiting and checking for the most recent version. if the problem persisted i pulled the heatsink/fan and replaced the thermal grease. i have been seeing this issue alot with hp units primarily in the dv series. most of the time replacing the thermal paste has worked. there were a few ocassions where i had to replace the heatsink/fan all together.

good luck

My 2002 Mazda tribute ran hot. I found out my heater connection was broke. But when I replaced it. It still ran hot and now it taps real loud when the motor gets hot.

Need to discover why it is running hot to start with but not drive if it is causing the motor to get noisy. Overheating can be due to a thermostat stuck closed, cooling fan not turning on, low coolant level etc. Need to get to the bottom of the overheating before engine is damage badly.

Why is the laptop getting so hot

Air vents on the bottom get blocked, this will eventually fry your motherboard. Make sure the vents are on the bottom can breath, if you need it on your lap (lol) buy a cooler fan for your model.

A lot of Toshiba laptops had overheat problems. Buy a can of air and blow out your air vents real good. One in the back is a heat sink and they accumulate dust and will start heating up. You can buy the air at any electronics or computer store or if you have an air compressor you can use that, the can air is dry.

My laptop gets so hot ; and the cooling fan blows out really hot air.

Well I can tell you that in my experience they get real hot too hot in my opinion, however, these days the laptops seem to emit an enormous amount of heat, but it seems to do NO harm, If you are worried get yourself a laptop Cooling Pad, they are cheap, they work, and will keep your unit cooler.

I have a balance laptop cn 6301 modle 1 535 when you trun it on it just beeps and the screen is black and then it shut down and get very hot

Try unseating the memory and reseating it back into its slot.

If you don't get video after that and the motherboard still is getting real hot then either the cpu fan or motherboard is bad.

Does the AC adapter get hot if you use it to power the notebook with the main battery removed? If not, the battery or internal charging board may be faulty/

Fan not working and sides are still hot

For your water flow problem and leak; Check in back of the refrigerator bottom right side facing the back. You will see two plastic tubes, one is for the water dispenser and the other is for the ice maker. Check for a loose connection at that point for the water leak.
