\015\012The computer is usually clogged with dust and other debris. See if the following instructions help.

Goto page 107 and follow the instructions to page 108.
Goto page 118 and follow the instructions to page 121.
Goto page 126 and see below:
\015\012
\015\012Be sure to have a duster can with a extender tube on hand now.
\015\012
\015\012On Page 126 You will remove the fan. This and the next page are the purpose
of doing this work. Follow the fan removal instructions. Check that the fan
turns freely. Take the duster and the fan and carry it outside if it is very
dusty and clogged up. Now blow the dust and accumulated debris from the fan.
\015\012Set the fan aside.
\015\012
\015\012On Page 127 You will only examine the heat sink, do NOT remove any screws here!!!
The heatsink is a copper or black colored assembly with heatpipes that curve to
the right into the cooling vanes. Look into the cooling vanes that are located
in the area where the fan was mounted. If there is blockage take you duster and
the extender tube. Insert the tube into the duster and try to hold the can
upright at all times. Now spray the gas into the cooling vanes with the tube
facing the side of the computer. This will be dusty. You may want to do it
outside if careful. Otherwise, wear a dust filter mask.
\015\012
\015\012To re-assemble follow the instructions in reverse order.
\015\012
\015\012If there was a blockage you will see a immediate improvement.
\015\012I hope that this helps.

Once you cool the computer down turn it back on and listen for the fan running. If you cannot hear it you will need to replace it. Make sure you are using your laptop on a hard flat surface. Using your lap or a pillow is the most common cause of overheating. Don't keep using the computer if it continues to overheat like this, overheating will eventually ruin your hard drive and cause a mess of problems. If your fan does seen to be running ok, try running out and getting a cooling pad to use your laptop while it's on your lap, some of the new ones have fans in them which will give you an extra boost of help on keeping your computer running cool at all times.

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. Do you think that's really the problem or could it be something else?
