HELP ------Laptop completely shuts down during Watch Instantly!

Any body have any problems while watching a movie from Watch instantly and have their computer shut down in the middle of the movie? I have only used this part of the membership twice but this problem has happened to me two nights in a row with different movies. I have an LG LCD TV, and I am using HDMI cable to view the movie to my laptop to my LCD TV. Last night I was dropped or my laptop shut off 3 times and on the 3rd time I lost my internet connection completely, having to reset it from the modem. Thought is was just a flook (sp?) Tonight I thought I would try a watch instantly different movie and it happened again only this time I was unable to get my laptop to come back on. It keep shutting down in the middle of my reboot for the past 4 hours. Finaally got it to up load in safe mode and did a system restore. Not sure what is causing this conflict, Who should I contact, netflix, LG or HP? Any suggestions or input would be very much appreciated.

Just so you know, it's fluke.
This is all part of Netflix's master plan...
Thank you, it does seem to get very hot during this time. I am thinking that this may be the problem. Interesting thing that it took about 3 hours to get it back to normal. How do I keep it from getting hot while watching instant movies? I know the fan is working because I can hear it. Will changin the power settings take care of this problem?
My laptop had problems overheating for a long time. I propped the back up on a book so there'd be a lot more air flow underneath it, and I've had much fewer issues with it shutting down.

Well I downloaded a program that monitors the temperature for the ACPI, Video card etc....I also propped my laptop up with a book to increase cooling potential. Within 10 minutes it heated up to 105 degrees and I decided to shut the computer down. I am getting varying iniformation on the "safety" temperature for a laptop. 175 seems a little extreme. I think there is a defect on the motherboard of my one year old HP G60-120. My laptop stays fairly constant between 65 and 85 degress depending on how many applications I have open and whether or not I am using the video card. This usage definitely heats up my laptop. Unfortunatley, the warranty expired on the 9th of this month.

Lastly, there is not dust build up on the exterior of my laptop, but that does not mean that it does not need a cleaning. I suppose I will try this option next. Not sure who or how to clean it and very uncomfortable doing it myself.

Thanks for the input, very helpful. I am thinking I should see if I can extend my warranty and take it back! LOL

Well, you can pay someone to do it, or you can open it up yourself and use some canned air (I'm not kidding, you can buy cans of pressurized air for this very purpose at places like RadioShack) to blow away dust and crumbs and so on. Just make sure that you've grounded yourself before touching any electronic components, a discharge of static electricity can fry some of the components in your computer, even if it isn't likely. Also make sure that the fans are properly attached to the processors (CPU, GPU etc.), sometimes bumps to laptops can loosen them and even small changes in distance can have a dramatic effect on the efficiency of cooling fans. You can buy special cooling gel to re-attach the fans if they've come loose. Don't use regular glue!
Pour some glow-in-the-dark liquid in there along with the coolant. And some low power neon lights.

Goodbye fan. Goodbye noise.

Hello


Pretty it ain't, but unique. And silent.
Fer fuck's sake don't try to open it unless you know the warranty is expired. If it ain't, go to the manufacturer, if it is, we can help you from there.
