I Bought an HP Pavilion Gaming - 15-ec0000nl about 2 weeks ago, and I was so happy about the fact that it runs games pretty smoothly. However, after a couple of days I started noticing That when I am gaming, the right side of the laptop gets pretty hot(the problem became less evident when I bought an external cooling fan), the adapter gets extremely hot, and then my laptop shows a blue screen written on it "locking" for about 1 second and then goes to sleep (or shuts down).
Nevertheless, the main problem now is that my laptop while plugged-in, charges very slowly. I tried guided trouble shooting and could not fix the problem, and when I run diagnostic on my battery it shows that its normal with no problems.
The following list describes some of the issues caused by overheating in the notebook:
Games stop responding during play.
Windows stops responding during use.
Fans inside the notebook become louder because they are spinning faster as the laptop gets hot, to remove the heat.
When starting the laptop, it sometimes stops at a black screen and does not open into Windows. Windows usually stop responding when it does open.
The following list describes some causes of excessive heat:
Dust inside the laptop.
A new component, such as a hard drive, is added. The extra component causes the power supply to work harder and generate more heat. Extra heat also radiates off the new component and adds to the temperature inside the case.
Over time, some cooling fans might slow down and wear out, as the laptop is getting hot, depending on the usage of the laptop.
