Help me figure out why my laptop is hot and messing up.
My laptop is running rather hot recently and some other things have been happening, lemme run it down for ya.
Fan running slowly (I think? Hard to tell)
Netflix jerky and audio lags behind
Crashes when too hot without blue screen
HDMI output very glitchy
Youtube freezing, and going black, but audio keeps going
I have ice packs I keep in the freezer that I have been keeping under the laptop to keep it cool, and when its cool, netflix seems to run fine.
Laptop is a HP pavilion dv7.
Bad ram? Bad fan? Bad GPU?
Help me out, computer is only a year an a half old.
I took it apart and dusted everything with a can 'o air and nothing seemed to improve.
