Answers :

U r saying that the laptop is overheating. I think it is from cpu overheating right. just to make sure that it is cpu overheating, just go to the following link and download the software around 1mb which displays each and every component heating levels.
from that you can find out the exact component.

if cpu is heating then just replace the thermal interface material and the problem will be gone.
if the cpu thermal interface material is too old then this type of problems arises
