usually when using flash (viewing or playing) there are always spikes in the cpu, this may cause the cpu to run hot... be sure that the fan is working correctly (no dust) and if the laptop is old try to clean it up / apply new thermal paste ...

dl a manual for you laptop and disassemble it keeping track of all your screws and wires; or give it to a service shop and they will do it for you for a fee.
As per flash, I played some online free games and fried my motherboard. So if you play, do not let it sit in the browser for too long.

Link to the pdf you need. Instructions for heatsink and diagrams start at page 114.

Even if you blow compressed air inward from where the air normally exits from the heatsink you will likely break-up some of the buildup. Heat related issues seem to be "last-straw" situations... A heatsink may be 80% blocked and then the next week when it only has slightly more buildup the computer starts freezing up. go figure.

Surely it would be best to take it all apart and clean it - though if you dont have the know-how, I wouldn't advise it. Just blow compressed air wherever you can!

EDIT: Also.. check to see if your video chip (integrated) is the nvidia 8300 or similar. I forget if it was the 8200 and 8300 or 8300 and 8400... But there were two parts with heat/death issues. Unfortunately Nvidia doesn't mind making products that turn PC's into mini-ovens.

Greetings, I have the same problem here, almost save configuration, a 2 years old HP DV-5, 8 Month Back I've de-assambled the Laptop and cleaned everything and used super good 'Arctic Selver' thermal paste, it worked great for 2 weeks and then when back to get hot, wait did I mentioned reeealy hot -100C- at the moment!

I really don't want to pay for a new one, can we have a replacement ?!

Ok so if it went for two weeks and then got hot there is some sort of underlying cause. Also, have you checked for BIOS updates, sometimes they correct fan operation..
