It is the video chip overheating. This is a known problem with this laptop gpu. Check for a bios update. Use the HP nvidia driver only (it has been tuned for the nvidia 5600). You may need to break the laptop down and replace thermal putty and clean the dust bunnies. This isnt a hp only problem. lenovo and apple have the same issue with many of their laptops containing this chip along with the 6000 nividia series chip.
