The heat exhaust is near the bottom on the back of the laptop. Intake
is on the bottom. When I vacuumed, dust came out of the intake vents.
I already have spacers and a cooling pad underneath my laptop; I
mentioned this in the original post.
At this point, I don't think there is much that can be done to solve
this problem. Others have said HP laptops have a reputation for
overheating, so I'll just have to remember that next time I'm buying.
