Was it running cool before?

What surface do you have it on?

Does it operate, does it not, or have you switched it off for fear of melting something critical?

Is it powering itself down because of overheat?

Have you tried running it on the AC-power rather than the battery or vice-versa?

If you haven't already, you might want to check and make sure the system is clean (no hair, pet fur, dandruff, roaches.) Try looking at the vents on the side of the case. If you know something about computers, you can probably open the case to look inside. While you're at it, make sure none of the heat-sinks in there popped off their seatings.

Further questions -
Does the top of the case get hot, or just the bottom?
What powers up when the laptop powers on?
Can you try feeling around the bottom of the case during a boot-up to figure out where in the chassis the overheating component is located?
Are your drives (hard drive, optical drive) still operating correctly from a mechanical standpoint?
