Answers :

With the laptop running, observe where the Air Intake Duct is at. Make sure this duct has plenty of room around it, to bring air in.
Typically this duct is located on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes it's up on the side next to the Exhaust Duct.

Either location brings this duct in a perfect(?) spot to bring in all kinds of foreign debris. Dirt/Dust/Food Particles/Lint, and so on.
Also makes it so it's easily blocked by the users clothes if they sit it on their lap, or blocked by bed, coverings, the couch, or carpet floor.

The opening you see narrows down into a Cooling Tube, the width and height of your index finger. This makes a funnel effect for the foreign debris.
Since the main objective of the Cooling Fan, Cooling Tube, and Heatsink, is to keep the processor cool, clogging these cooling components can lead to a detrimental effect in a hurry!

Solution? I suggest cleaning out the Air Intake Duct, (Do Not blow air into the Exhaust Duct!), with a can of compressed air for computers. These cans of air are readily available in a lot of places. (Office supply stores, computer stores, Walmart, and so on)

Remove the AC adapter, (Charger), and battery before you begin.
