Having problems with your HP PC Laptops ?

My dv 5 gets so hot!

\015 Hi,\015\012I have a hp pavillion dv 5, and it gets so incredibly hot. I have a scar on my lap from a burn i got just resting it there for a few seconds, and i can't use it without it being elevated, or else the rubber grounding on my desktop would melt (it did once)\015\012How can I fix this? Can i complain about it? Clean it? It was bought in august, (in Norway) can I still turn it in for another since it gets so hot it's dangerous?\015

Answers :

Its the computer problem I have one too it gets really hot sometime I have to put it in the freezer, i had called hp and the guy on the phone said hge has one too with the same problem
I have a HP Pavillion DV5 aswell. Your laptop is overheating, because something is getting in it's Fans. If you don't use a desk or cover the fans it will overheat. But your laptop is heating to a point where i think it's defective. Go see a computer technition and see what he thinks. My DV5 never heats up, so i'm almost sertain there is something defective. Goodluck.
