Here's a few examples of what I often see when I'm ask to solve an overheating laptop problem:

Solution? Thoroughly (but gently) clean out all the gunk and she's raring to go.

I agree with Doc, but I usually suggest folks take notebooks in to a shop for thorough cleanings. Notebooks are so darned proprietary, if you don't know how or where to strategically hold your tongue right, you may damage something just opening the case. You can certainly remove all access covers and slide in cards and drives and blast it out and that may help. But a thorough cleaning as suggested is your best bet. Keeping the interior clean of heat trapping dust is probably the biggest disadvantage to notebooks.

Then get a Notebook Cooling Pad w/ext. power supply.
