Aha! We have found your problem. :whistling:

Now for the solution...

I'm not that familiar with operating on laptops, so take your problem to the hardware forum and ask them how to open up and clean the dust from your laptop. Also let them know that your laptop is overheating.

In addition, if the cleanning was not enough to resolve the heat, consider buying a laptop cooler. This is a device which has a similar shape to the laptop and it sits under it. It sucks in air and blows it onto the laptop to keep it cool.

Hope everything works out for you. :blink:

One last follow-up since my problem is fixed. :whistling:

The guys over at the other forum suggested I open the laptop up and clean it out. I didn't find much dust but there was apparently enough to cause it to overheat. I cleaned it out and have used the laptop several times since then and have had zero problems. It's even behaved better than before. Problem solved!!!

Thanks for all your help!
