Not exactly Linux related, but this doesn't need a thread of its own: MY OLD LAPTOP IS DYING!!

Yep, my HP dv6000, which is almost 7 years old, is running hotter than hot. Like in scorching my hand hot.

I've done absolutely no troubleshooting yet and, frankly, I'm not sure I'm going to. I don't really feel like repairing it, but I don't want to just toss it either, I mean if it's still salvageable. So I don't know. I guess I could take it apart and see what's what.

It's purely an extra laptop, so its demise won't be the end of the world. I resurrected it by putting Bodhi Linux on it, and I'm not kidding that sucker flies! It's fast. You'd never know it's seven years old.
