Answers :

A few things you can do to improve the situation
\015\012Switch it off and get a can of compressed air meant for cleaning computers. Take it outside and with the nozzle on the can spray inside all the ventilation and cooling slots but do not poke the nozzle into any of those. That usually chases out the dust bunnies.
\015\012That in itself may help if you saw lots of gunk coming out.
\015\012Now go get yourself a cooling pad with at least 3 fans and one that has its own power supply too. It should also be capable of running from a usb port.
\015\012NEVER run a laptop while it is sat on ANY soft surface eg bed, cushion, carpet, etc etc. if you have to run it without a cooling pad then make sure it is propped up slightly at the rear to aid air flow

Truth be told my friend took it apart w/out the service manual and put it back together and now it overheats. The original problem is the techs at Staples said my mouse went crazy and still is.

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.
