    Well obviously gaming will increase the temperature of your laptop. How "hot" is hot though? Is it uncomfortably hot or is it warm or what? I had an old HP dv2000 which overheated really really really bad, but I doubt yours is that bad. Mine actually shut down since it got so hot.

    Check your vents to see if anything is blocking them and avoid using it on your laptop or on your bed where something could potentially block them(such as sheets or clothes).

    Also you can download HWmonitor to see your temperatures while you game and check which part in your laptop is heating the most. Chances are it's probably either the GPU or the HDD heating up though.

    It is normal for that area to get hot because that is where hot air from the heatpipe is expelled. The fan sucks air in through the square vent and pushes it out through the side vents in the back and on the side.

    Download "GPU-Z" and tell us what temps you get for gaming and idle.

    Have you considered using a cooler?

    You don't use it on your lap while gaming do you...?

    Well first of all, you should download GPU-Z of HWMonitor to read your temperatures. Both these programs will check the temperature of each of your parts so just record the temperatures while gaming to see if there are any problematic temperatures.

    Also, clean out the vents and avoid gaming when the laptop is anywhere but on a solid surface such as a desk. This will reduce the chance of cloth or dust getting into the fans.

    The cooler is a good idea and also think about elevating the back of your laptop just a bit with either a book or something. That 2-3cm will improve the air flow under the laptop and decrease the heat.

    Hi, I googled this thread, and decided to register and post because I seem to have the same problem with my Pavilion dv5. It gets EXTREMELY hot.

    Not 'wow, that's pretty warm, what's wrong with your computer?'

    more like 'ouch, my lap' or 'wow, why is my desk burned?'

    any idea why?

    I have a warranty on it, and I could take it to best buy and have them ship it back to hp for a new one, or they'd repair the fan or whatever.

    But I don't know if I feel like waiting for six weeks while they do that.

    use HWMonitor to give us some numbers. saying "hot" is useless.
