It could be about the heat of the computer -- after all, one can burn your fingers on a burning match inside a walk-in commercial food freezer, when the room-temperature is below freezing.
Instead, Google-search for "download SPECCY free".
Download and install SPECCY, and run it.
It will show the temperature of the motherboard, the temperature of the CPU, the temperature of the disk-drive, and the speed (hopefully not "zero") of each of the fans inside the computer.

Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and look for the message "press the <blah> key to enter HP DIAGNOSTICS".
Press the <blah> key.
Select the test for the RAM -- "bad" RAM can cause sudden crashes.
Select the test for the disk-drive.
How old is the computer?
