Hey, I suggest all of you that are having problems with HP pavillion getting way too hot and HP customer service not wanting to do anything with it... use your social media... put it out there where everyone will see it... like on Facebook and Twitter... social media is such a powerful tool any more... if it won't at least make them accept accountability for a defective product then maybe it will affect the amount of people still foolish enough to buy there product. Come on, one voice you guys... you really can make a difference... put it out there... be relentless about it... on top of that boycott their product, see how well they interact with something that's their fault then...

What is very bogus about HP not wanting to be accountable... they do it about everything. I bought my laptop for school and about 1 month and a few days after I got it, it crashed. I had to get another hard drive and install it myself. I had not even made the first payment on the thing but they told me my warranty had expired... I said 'really, on a laptop that's only 1 day past the 30 day mark' and yes it has the same problem... it gets overheated and shuts down on me... always has. They have such poor accountability and customer service. I think it's about time the world should know the truth.

I bought an HP laptop in October 2013, and within a month, I noticed it started getting really hot. So hot, that it burnt my leg. It left a red mark, but went away after a little while. I noticed that the power cord was hot too. I still use the laptop, however, I always make sure that it is sitting up on something so that the vents can breathe on it. What is scary, is the fact that I have kids who use this computer, and I am afraid they may forget to shut it off when done, and lay it on a surface such as a bed or carpet and start a fire. The laptop literally gets that hot!! So, am wondering, should I contact HP to get an exchange, or what should I do. Other than getting extremely hot, it has been a great working device. My concern lies with the safety of this machine.

I have the same problem with my HP Pavilion DV6t-7000 laptop. My computer was bought in US last December 2012 but using it here in the Philippines. I already bought a cooling pad for my laptop but it is still getting very hot that even the plastic covering my cooling pad is starting to deform. Just 3 days ago, my battery died and needs to buy a new one. I am using my laptop now by pluging it directly in the power outlet.
Can you please advise how to solve this problem.

Same here...I've noticed over the last couple of days that my Pavillion is getting very hot. It crashed a few weeks ago and I took the battery out and ran it on AC then put the battery back in and it worked...still didn't hold a charge for long. I've been ignoring the messages about my battery but knew it was going bad. Anyway now it is getting extremely hot! Hasn't crashed yet but I'm about to shut it down again for it to cool off. When I boot back up I'll shop for a new laptop. Too bad it only lasted a couple of years. I liked the laptop in general but I don't like the fact that they are so disposable. Seems that a lot of manufacturers are making their products with poor design so that they can keep making money from customers who need replacement parts. Having the same problem with my 1 year old very expensive front load washer. I guess I'm just getting fed up with spending a lot of money for computers and appliances that have aroundin a 2 year lifespan. Still using my 15 year old dryer with no problems. All of the newer computers are cheap. I remember my old Packard Bell 365 desktop from way back in the 90's. That thing lasted 10 years then I gave it away...it was outdated but I never had a single problem with it. I'll quit complaining about the crappy lifespan of my Pavillion and won't mention the other desktop pc's that are dead after 6 months from bad hard drive...well I did mention it after all. Gotta go and let my laptop cool off...and me too..sorry for the long rant. Just disgusted

My HP products all seem to be made as disposable now. Like you, I was loyal to HP because they used to make great products. They are making huge cuts everywhere they can and do not pay their employees nearly ehough. Terrible place to work for and the products are being made by underpaid employees who are working for a company that has no concern for their morale. The managers suck and the company has ended up being full of people who were ticked off all the time about their job. No wonder the products are beginning to suck. HP your reorgs are going to be your downfall. Get with the program and pay your employees what they deserve. Cut out the micromanaging crap and let your workers excel and be happy. In the end you'll end up being a reputable company.
