Perhaps you should make a post on the laptop forum or system forum and ask for advice on purchase for your future laptop or desktop computer.
The HP Pavillion DV2000 series of laptop is notoriously famous for its overheating problem. There is even a class action against HP for that laptop. Wherever you are buying that laptop from, they are not being honest.
