HP laptop overheats and shuts down.

My HP G72 laptop overheats and turns itself off. What are the possible causes? I have taken it apart and cleaned it completely inside. Very small amount of dirt and the fan is working.

Blow some compressed air into the fan duct, you"ll be suprised how much dust comes out. it worked for me :).

Technician repaired my laptop for the same overheating as I also have a G72, the fan now works but the computer does not. Can anyone help?

Can you tell me all the information about the problem?

Does the computer turn on but with a black screen?

Hi Thank you everyone for commenting. I do not have the laptop any more. It would tun on like it normally should and everything would work perfectly for a while, but after some time whether I used it or it sat idle it would just shut down for no reason what so ever. When I took it apart the fan worked fine and was clean because I would blow compressed air into all the open vents and the fan area every month or so. Also I always used the laptop on a hard surface. Thanks again.

@vinced when you cleaned it you odf course made sure that all the air inlet vents were clean and un-obstructed. Just because you hear your fan, does not mean it runs efficiently. I would suggest you replace the fan and replace the thermal paste on the heatsink. A lot also depends on where you use your computer. Always make sure that the air vents are not obstructed. So do not use it on something like a pillow or similar.

Thank you, oldturkey03. Yes, I did check all air vents and all were clear. I used canned air and cleaned every square inch inside the laptop and checked for burn mark or any signs of something "not right", but all looked good. I have been using a cooling tray under the laptop, but it still overheats. Also, I use it on a table top with plenty of clear space around it. I, also suspected the cooling fan and the heatsink were not working properly. I removed the fan/heatsink and cleaned off the old thermal paste and with new paste. But still the same problem. A new fan is less expensive than a new laptop, so I think I will order a new fan/heatsink assy. Thank you for your help. I do appreciate it.


your VGA exhausted so you cant doing any thing.
