HP nc 6220 overheating? problem.

Hi there!
I've got a HP nc 6220 problem.
My Second hand Laptop auto turns off after ca 20 mins of using it, the shutdown comes even faster if the cd/dvd drive is running. I also noticed that the laptop is getting pretty hot. Could this be an overheating prob. How can I easily fix that?
Plz help :)

The best way to deal with this is to buy a laptop cooler. You can get them at most office & computer supply stores or online from one of the many online computer or sales sites. The usually run from about $10-$60, I'd recommend something in the mid price range with 2 or more fans. Until you can get a cooler use your laptop on hard surfaces only and prop up the back a little to allow air under it.

It sounds like you do have an overheating problem. When the laptop is running, peek inside the vent on the side or bottom of the laptop and determine if the fan is running. If it is running slow or completely stoped, that is your issue and it should be replaced by a local repair shop.

If the fan seems to be running fine, you may be able to deal with the problem and extend the life of the laptop a little by buying a laptop "cooling pad" which will have cooling fans of its own.

my bet is overheating too.
you have to take a look to the cooler, dust can block the air flow. bad news is you will need to open the laptop to be able to clean it. also, the overheating problem may lead to motherboard problems..
