Did you do that very simple check for the cooling? It takes all of a minute Chobbs and at least eliminates that avenue of the problem.

Hi ICit2lol,

Got busy the past few days with my quadcopter project. I did check the fan issue, i shined the light but i don't see anything coming out the radiator vent. My light is strong but i don't know how strong a light i need. I'm just going to open it up in the next few days and inspect it.

Back to the original issue (the trouble shoot icon on my laptop icon), it now says it's a driver issue (see picture). I can't seem to figure out which driver exactly. Everything in the device manager is working properlly.

Any thoughts ?

I have an idea though, i'll try and get the current hp drivers for my laptop model and see if that fixes it.

Let me know if you think of anything else

Hmm sory late reply mate the light just one of those small bright LED torches or a strong desktop lamp held real close (don't forget any heat generated) and you should see light very clearly otherwise that "rad" is blocked.
Have attached pic if I didn't attach before and anyway if the "rad" is really dirty the fan should show signs of crud too.

Chobbs if you have that yellow triangle as in post #1 against the machine you need to go into Device Manager and open out each segment because leaving it as in your shots of the Device Manage r there looks to be nothing wrong.
In my pics I have my Device Manager completely shut and then a pic with network opened out. So you need to go through each of those entries and open them out to see if there are any yellow triangles.
