Why does my Envy notebook overheat when it’s on but not in use?
Welcome to the HP support community.
Clean the air vents
Dust and debris can accumulate in and around the air vents over time, obstructing the airflow and causing the fans to work harder than normal to remove the heat.
Turn off the computer.
Remove any objects near the computer.
Use a vacuum to remove the dust from the vents underneath and on the sides of the computer.
Turn the computer on, and then place it on a hard, level surface, such as a desk or table.
Update the BIOS
Go to HP Software and Drivers Downloads, and then navigate to the product page for your computer.
Locate BIOS in the list.
If the BIOS option is not available, the BIOS is up-to-date.
If the BIOS option is available, click BIOS, and then click Download next to the update. Follow the on-screen prompts, and then restart the computer. For more information, go to Updating the BIOS (Basic Input Output System).
