O k 1st you can buy small computer fan vacuum machines that will **** all of that dust out. Then you must use a Laptop stand to let air run and circulate under and around the computer.
Hope this helped

Go to a local computer shop or big box store (staples, best buy, etc) and pick up a can of compressed gas. These are labeled under multiple different names. The one I have here is labeled power duster. Take this and your laptop outside in good weather conditions (not raining, snowing, windy) and then everywhere you see dust hit it with the compressed gas. You want to do this outside as its not compressed air but an actual gas. Just a heads up the can gets VERY cold and the longer you use it the colder it gets. Take frequent brakes so you don't start spraying an actual liquid gas. Always spray with the can right side up. If you turn it upside down there is a higher chance of shooting out a liquid instead of a gas.

Put your computer back together and it should operate much cooler.

My hp probook 4410s laptop is switching off suddenly in half an hour if it is hot. what is the problem?

it's hot, that's the problem, get a cooling pad, and/or spray it out with compressed air. it's always possible that you may need to take the back off and clean out the fan.

Don't try to fix it yourself, otherwise you will void the warranty. Just take it to an HP dealer and they will fix it for you, for free.

I have HP Probook 4510S since a year.In summer season it gets over heat and suddenly shut down.Even while its on plane surface... it works fine while its in my LAP

The feet may have popped off the bottom, where the vents are located. Either replace the small feet (they just stick on) or set the laptop on a cooling stand so that the bottom is exposed to the air. You may also want to clean the vents.

On some HP laptops there is a smooth illuminated strip that you think is just lights but it's actually touch sensitive. there could be a WiFi symbol there which you should touch to turn it on.

On others it's a fn key over the F12 key.

Laptop switched off while i was working on it

After the notebook shuts down do not turn it back on for 15 minutes and then test it again. Will the notebook work longer if you let it cool down for a while? Isn’t it hot if you touch the bottom? Can you hear the fan running?
Most likely you experience a laptop overheating problem and it would be fixed by cleaning the cooling module – the heat sink and the fan. The notebook processor produces a lot of heat when the notebook is turned on. The cooling module helps to keep the CPU cool when the laptop is working. The cooling module includes two parts: the heat sink and the cooling fan. The heat sink is attached to the CPU and helps to conduct the heat from the processor to the radiator. The cooling fan blows on the radiator and helps to disperse the heat produced by the CPU. The laptop will overheat if the heat sink radiator is clogged with lint and dust or if the cooling fan stopped spinning.
If your laptop shuts down after some time without any reason and warning, check if the cooling fan spins. Usually it makes some noise and you can hear it. If the fan works fine, then check if the heatsink is clogged. In some cases you can clean the heat sink with compressed air, just blow inside the fan openings on the laptop bottom. If the heatsink is completely clogged, then it is necessary to remove the heatsink for cleaning.
