Hello, I have an HP Envy 15.6" 1270-ca and ever since I bought it it has been running at a very hot temperature. When it boots up, its at 40 degrees. After about 30 minutes with me on Word, its at 55 degrees. However, when I start gaming, it goes up to 78-85 degrees. Is that too hot? Lastly, I have been getting blue screens and freezes which are common signs of over heating. So should I scrap this computer and get a new one? Or are there ways I can fix this issue. Thanks in advance.

When gaming that temperature sounds a bit high, but my HP Pavilion dv6 gets about the same temperature when its under a decent load.

Your temperature is fine for a laptop. I think the bsod is caused by something else. What have you got on the bsod? Did you install an update, program, driver, firmware or change hardware lately?
