laptop runs too hot

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have an HP ENVY 1189el laptop and while I'm gaming or watching a movie while being on facebook it gets so hot that it has to shut off to prevent damage. I also have a cooler with two 800mm fans on it, which is turned on, and the cpu and gpu run around 90 degrees.
How could I solve this problem?
thanks

Take it apart and thoroughly clean it out. I just did that this weekend plus applied new thermal compound to my HP Pavilion dv7 circa 2008. Wanted to revive it a bit for my father to use it over seas. So far so good!

Take it apart and replace thermal paste and blow everything out with some canned air or the likes. Do you have any way of lowering your ambient temps? My sister had to RMA her envy (not sure the exact model) so much (due to GPU over heating) that she got sick of using it, and it is now just a paper weight.

My sister's laptop, some dell with an intel processor, was overheating and shutting down even when browsing and just idling at 80C. The fan, grille, and heatsink were clean, so I dug deeper. The manufacturer used literally about 30 or 40 times as much thermal paste than needed. It was now several years old and just insulating the cpu. I was able to get it off, but not without barking up the surface of the heatsing and cpu cap. After applying new paste and reseating the heatsink, temps dropped 20-25C. I guess the 4 years or so considered the life of a laptop and people just buy new ones then.
