recently, hp elitebook 8760w (17inch) laptop is having heating issue , even though the laptop is on a table and i have kept books in the center to keep it ventilate and above the table and sides are open for vent purpose..
using speccy, with chrome, wifi, avast on only. (no gaming or office)
Summary
Operating System Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU Intel Core i7 2630QM @ 2.00GHz 55 °C
RAM 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24) (2gbx2 + 4gbx1)

I have no idea why it is heating up and during fortnite it goes over 80 degress for cpu n gpu.
Can you please guide me what is the reason and how to solve so i can have a normal temp when no playing games.
Also for some reason my laptop give me static when power is connected.
 
Wow, I think you pretty much have a twin of my HP. :D

I don't use it for gaming, but I know it can produce some heat when stressed. Check if hot air is blowing out the vent on the left towards the back and make sure nothing is blocking the air intake on the bottom. Those books if in the wrong place will actually make things worse.

Also, what do you consider as being 'hot'? I know mine turns into a small heater when doing video streaming with the camera so that's just part of the older processor getting taxed.

When (if ever) was the last time the heatsink was removed, cleaned and thermal paste reapplied?

I too have one of these and have seen that the factory paste, in addition to being sloppily applied, doesn't provide very long lasting results. This model tends to run hot under load anyway.
