dude it has a 4650 with 512mb ram and a AMD dual core, if it wasnt meant to play games then it would have integrated intel GMA graphics and tablet touch screen. Cod 4 is a simple game to run and especially on that graphics card it will run no problem. You should learn a bit more about laptop gamers before sayin stuff like that.

Have you ever overheated? slid it under your bed sheets while it was running a benchmark perhaps?
Hmm yes I have, I had it Folding for a while and left it on my bed for maybe an hour or so when I came back to check, the laptop had shut down and I could smell a faint burning odor,I figured it was just normal overheating precautions.
Edit:I've actually done this quite a few times .So could it be that I damaged my Sensor or my mobo?

well theres your problem, you probably burnt the sensor, the fan wasnt able to get any air and it probably short circuited the sensor would be my guess. I cant speak for HP but i had a 17in Dell Inspiron E1705 and that thing was literally indestructable, i had gotten a new computer and wanted to test its durability, so i put up a benchmark and put it under bed sheets, it got unbelievably hot but still didnt shut down, i had to manually power it off. After it cooled down it worked perfectly again, so then i went a bit more extreme, and i stuck my motherboard in the microwave, there was some popping and sizzling but even that didnt break it, because i stuck it back in my computer, powered it on and wouldnt ya know it, it worked perfectly. Dell makes indestructable computers, will always love them for that.

The gaming performance of the GPU lies a bit below the HD 4670. Most DirectX 9 games (like Call of Duty 4, F.E.A.R., or Unreal Tournament 3) should be playable in medium to high details (in 1024x768). Demanding DX10 games from 2008 like Crysis run only in low-medium details fluently.
Please don't be so aggressive in your replies and suggest I need to learn things I do not.

It appears the GPU is failing hard in this situation. It really shouldn't be left folding for long periods of time, either. Laptops are built to cool themselves under nominal use (I repair laptops very frequently and the most frequetny case is an overheated GPU or broken fan).

It is not a gaming device and I wouldn't imagine it was marketed as such.

LOL.Is there any way that I could replace my sensor or is it integrated with the motherboard?

My laptop works just not like it should.On day one of purchase I was able to run Cod4 maxed at 1366x768 and quite a few other games.,but as I've stated before I am no longer able to do that and my performance is nowhere near how it used to be.

Don't worry, the worst that could have happened is the solder melted simiilar to what happens in the Xbox 360. You should be able to get it reflowed properly for a nominal fee somewhere.
