ANNOYING: HP G62 Laptop Always Overheating And Turning Off. by akagson: 4:21pm On Feb 20, 2016
And so this laptop is beginning to annoy me. I can not do anything reasonable again on the PC before it will "overheat" and then switch off.

It was kind of better before as it takes time before it would claim to overheat and then subsequently switch off. I'd have to wait for it to cool before I can switch on again, after which it would still "overheat" and off again in no time.

I can't explain what nonsense this is. What do I do to this laptop?

The fan is working because I can still hear the rotation sound . However, you raised a salient point about,"dirty environment" . I live in the North where there's too much dust. Could it be that the dust has kind of blocked the vents or something?

So must it have to be that I change the fan. How about like cleaning and servicing the laptop — sort of. Any solution like that?

In addition to cleaning, try and get a technician to re-apply thermal compound between the heat sink and the processor. most technicians may not know what I talking of as "thermal compound" but it is a grey compound sold in syringes. Works wonders for cooling

Thanks for the info. But what is the local name they know it with? I mean, since its something that they sell, they must have a name for it. You have any idea what it's called locally?
