Serviced an HP G62 laptop recently, that was shutting down randomly and customer stated screen would distort at times.
Installed a temperature monitoring program on the laptop. And just booting up to desktop, “idle temperature” was 79-87 celsius, which is overheat high temperature range, especially on laptops. Began a malware scan, and within 20 seconds temperature went from 82 celsius to 116 celsius.. red zone, fry temperature.
I immediately stopped the scan, and shut the laptop down. Disconnected cord and battery and opened this HP G62 laptop up. Cooling Fan & Heatsink cooling grill was completely blocked off with dust build up.
