  2. In my own own case… My pc Gets very hot. You can even Use it to cook yam. Very very hot to the point that it will off by it self and request i should cool it. HP 630 pc. It wasent like this when i First bought it.

    • You need to fix the internal cooling. Clean the fan(s) that provide(s) cooling to the CPU and graphics card. Over time, they build up layers of dust and dirt that slow them down and block airflow.

    • So many reason… but it can easily be fix.
