If you can get the system to crash during high load logging, that's even better. If you are not comfortable removing the drive then use the diagnostics from the Seagate link, this will work on any make of drive. Cooling Fan & Heatsink cooling grill was completely blocked off with dust build up. To give a guide for this I need to know your version of Windows.
Thought you might find this useful. My system: Windows 7 pro 6.1.7601 service pack 1 build 7601 Processor - AMD Phenom II X6 1090T... Starting feel "buyers' remorse!" I will do a diagnostics on it. The laptops cooling fan runs very loud, at high speed constantly trying to cool down the laptop, even with 0% cpu usage going on.
Bad or loose memory modules. Register your product with HP and do all the recommended HP Support Assistant updates exept the Windows Updates. Keeping the exhaust vent blown out often on the laptop will help keep the fan area clear inside. And the automatic "random" shutdown of the computer or laptop is a thermal protection feature, trying to warn you and protecing the laptop from complete overheat failure,, DO NOT IGNORE IT.
