\015\012A few things you can do to improve the situation

Switch it off and get a can of compressed air meant for cleaning computers.
\015\012Take it outside and with the nozzle on the can spray inside all the ventilation and cooling slots but DO NOT poke the nozzle into any of those. (maybe wear eye protection whilst doing this)
\015\012That usually chases out the dust bunnies.

That in itself may help if you saw lots of gunk coming out.

Now go get yourself a cooling pad with at least 3 fans and one that has its own power supply too. It should also be capable of running from a usb port.

NEVER run a laptop while it is sat on ANY soft surface eg bed, cushion, carpet, etc etc. if you have to run it without a cooling pad then make sure it is propped up slightly at the rear to aid air flow.

\015\012Newer laptops need more ventilation.
\015\012The only drawback to that is that more dust can get in and clog things up. and this usually leads to the situation you found yourself in.

\015\012An overworked fan is also prone to early failure. If this happens and you feel confident opening up a laptop but more importantly being able to put it together again then it is not a difficult process to replace one and gives the chance to really clean inside.
Sounds like your system fan is not set to run in the bios or it is set wrong, a simple check by shutting down laptop and powering back up pressing the del key a few times after hitting power will bring you to a bios window with options for power settings and system info, if you look at system info it will say usually the system temp and fan speed in rpm's we are hoping for 3000+ rpms or above 2k rpms to suficiently cool the laptop, it has a thermal coper heatpipe that is a evaporative colling method but not exactly good enogh we need the fan to draw the heat away from the processor, hope this helps a bit,. their was not alot of information about they system to work with, good luck. also note that fans speeds vary acording to the bios settings a smart fan controller will limit the speed to lower noise but may cause overheating. better to be fast then slow if possable but acording to battery run times it may not be desired to run all the time only when needed.
