If its still underwarrentee, send it in to be repaired, 3 mo's in, that is bad. It should be opened and fixed by a employee. They hold responsibility that way too.

I firmly believe that a laptop should have been designed with adequate cooling and shouldn't need any additional cooling pads. If your laptop is running hot and you are certain that the cooling vents are clear, return it because it's defective (or a poor design). Are you sure the interior fan is working?

I have a 7 year old Fujitsu laptop that was starting to run hot enough that the fan was always on. The cooling vents were clear but I took it apart and found that the cooling fins on the CPU heatsink were clogged with lint and pet hair and blocking airflow across the heatsink. I cleaned the gunk out, reassembled and now the fan rarely comes on.

Well, the cpu is made and stress tested to be good under 100c, but if it reaches that high or stays near that temp, it can malfunction, melt, fuse to the board all sorts of bad stuff.

You'd be right.

HP has insane overheating issues with their laptops. People tell me I'm crazy, but I've had a firsthand experience with them. I have two dv6000 laptops from around 2007, and one of them crapped out due to the GPU overheating. The other one is on the same path. This is basically the cause:
DV6000/DV9000 NVidia Issue fix! - HP Support Forum

Long story short, I spent months trying to get it replaced. First they replaced the part with another faulty part. Then they kept insisting nothing was wrong until the warranty ran out. Some people have had luck getting their laptops replaced, but you have to go through a ton of work to get HP to do something.

Moral of the story: Don't buy from HP anymore. I'm surprised there hasn't been a class-action lawsuit. They put their money before their customers and their customers' safety and this is simply unacceptable.

If you can get a person with an MVP badge on this forum to back you up, and/or you do enough research, it might have a better chance of shutting up that employee. What particular model do you have?
