I have a HP Pavilion.
It started randomly shutting off a few weeks ago, and I noticed it was getting really, really hot on the bottom. Now it started doing it more and more, then it started making a funny noise.
I have had it on a cakerack cooler thinger, with a fan blowing on it, seems to help but annoys me.
I'm pretty sure that it's my fan. Do you think it might just be clogged? Any way I can fix it without opening up.
I do have a warranty with Best Buy, I'd just rather save the trip across town if I can.
