Question about HP Computers & Internet
Unfortunately HP has has an overheating problem with their laptops for years. Machines often get hot enough to melt the solder and other parts on the motherboard . This often results in faults ranging from system shutdown to audio problems to complete failure. They have not addressed this issue adequately.
It would be best to replace any parts that show heat damage. You can verify that the fan is working by hearing it run. Also your bios should show if the fan is operational. Alternately, there are several free utilities such as Mother Board Monitor that can monitor CPU temperature, fan operation and system condition.
Don't be surprised if even after replacing the motherboard, the system still overheats. Using a cooling pad and assuring the vents are clean and clear of obstructions may help.
