Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario C769US Notebook ?

Compaq Presario C769US PC Laptop heats up.

\015 Lower left, just below keyboard, gets VERY hot after PC has been on for a couple of hours. It's usually on all day, but I do shut it down if I'm not going to use it for a couple of hours. It is cool again when I reboot. I don't remember it running hot when I bought it - September '08 I believe it was.\015

Answers :

Right under that area of the keyboard there is a heat sink. If you look in the bottom of your laptop, in that area you will see a vent (and another towards the upper area of the bottom of the laptop). These vents are to keep the internal devices cool.

You can buy a laptop cooler online or in the store
