Last night my computer I guess overheated and did the black screen then restart Thermal Shutdown error screen. So I turned the computer off and let it cool down for the night. But in the morning when I turned my computer back on, it took me to get to Safe Mode then restart my computer to get it to go back to normal. This freaks me out since I really didn't want to have to get a new laptop or something so what can I do to not get this to happen again and is there any permanent damage done to my computer I should have looked at? Thank you!

systemboards have thermal chip that prevents CPU to get burned when its overheating. If Ur problem has hapend not only once U should reconsider to take look at cooling system of laptop.
Maybe fan is damager or dirty and need to be celaned same as radiator. Maybe thermal paste on CPU got dry and needs to be replaced.
Ur system information letting U know that last it has been shutted down not properly so it prevents for system loss data or corruption.
If ull have problems with system in next time just try to repair it from system recovery menu or reinstal.
Still overheatinh issues should be pointed as a warranty repair to HP support Center. Also U may try to solve them by Urself by cleaning for example spray clean air into cooling vents to let fan and radiator of dust. But its only temporary method.
Also avoid to use laptop on bed and not flat materials to prevent cooling vents get covered it will also helps.
