Hi,

 

My laptop is the HP Pavilion dv9730 US ( a few years older than yours) and I too get the blank (or blue like you say) screen now and then.  I haven't been able to figure out what is going on there but I have found the only thing I can do is to keep my battery removed and when this happens, I just pull the power plug.  Not a great solution, but removing power and thus rebooting gets my computer (and screen) operating again.  I got this answer online here on the HP site somewhere.  Unfortunately, it seems to be a common occurence.

Hi,

 

I wouldn't take your computer apart especially if it's still under warranty!

 

Yes, many folks have had problems with heating issues.  I have as well.  One thing I did that helped...I put a folded towel (thick) under my computer but made sure that the fan which is under the computer is NOT covered.  This allows the fan some space to push air and therefore circulate the air.  Always try to have some free space under the fan so the air can circulate.
