Problem with my hp pavilion dv3-2130ef is that it often get overheated and get hanged or shutdown unexpectedly , kindly explain the problem and solution ..
and what is the best recommended operating...
Mr Meer, let me start at the end, on the second question. Operating systems are a matter of personal preference, and rarely interfere with the normal operation of hardware, in other words, software will not induce hardware failure except in a few easy to identify cases.
Overheating can be caused either by cooling fan (s) failure, or by excessive CPU computing, or "looping". Any of these situations will bring the dreaded "blue screen" and hang / stop your laptop.
To eliminate the possibility of excessive computations that cause the CPU to overheat, open the task manager, and look at CPU activity. The inactive process line should read more than 96%, except when doing something complex, then it drops down, but settles above 96% after a few seconds. If it reads between 10% and 60% constantly, that is the origin of the problem.
The other possibility is a fan failure. Borrow an auxiliary fan base/ pedestal and see if the problem is cured. If this is the case, either the board fan or the cpu fan have stopped working. On most laptops cpu fan is almost impossible to hear.
