Here is a link to the service manual for your unit. I would use it to open up your computer and clean the fans and interior of debris. You may also want to redo the thermal paste under the CPU. Hope this helps.

I've worked on the HP Pavillions and I can tell you that redoing the thermal paste should definitely fix the heating issue, if it hasn't overheated to the point that it's damaged anything already, that is.

But it's only 10 bucks, a coffee filter, latex gloves and rubbing alcohol, so not too much of an investment to at least try it.
