Laptop getting very hot

\015 I have a HP Compaq nc6320 laptop that gets very hot while I am using it for even 20 minutes. It gets too hot for my legs/lap. Any ideas before I take it in for repair.\015

Answers :

Make sure that the internal fan is cycling or working. if this fan is not running, it will allow the laptop to reach unsafe temperatures that will damage the circuitry over time.

Replace the cooling fans if they are not functioning.
