L20 laptop overheats - disk makes beep and clicking noises

\015 Laptop gets hot and PC is just incredibly slow - done check disk.\015

Answers :

When any electronic device gets hot/overheats you will notice performance issues. Is the fan turning on/running? There should be a fan (most on the bottom of laptop some on side) that turns on when the unit get above a certain temp. Make sure thats comin on when it starts to get pretty warm/hot, also make sure you have adequate ventallation (laptops naturally get very hot no matter what). Make sure the bottom legs raise the laptop off of your table (should not sit completely flat on the table and should sit up just a little to allow air to flow underneath) or lap so air can circulate from the vents. If no fan then I would suggest replacing the fan (about $20). and see if that solves your issue.
I would suggest several things, but first of all the beeping and clicking MAY be a failed/failing hard drive, which would be an entirely different issue. Also, you may find that cleaning the the unit out thoroughly with a can of compressed air (Office supply stores, volume stores etc.) may help with the overheating problem. Check also to see if there are any recalls on your lappy for manufacturing probs. I once owned a Toshiba that was recalled for poor quality gel between the processor and heat-sink. My overheating problem got solved quickly.

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard.
