Need help with overheating laptop - Sony PC Laptops

Answers :

You need to get a can of compressed air and blow out the ventilation holes in the sides and bottom.
Also--is the fan running? You can hear it if it is. If not, you're going to have to replace it.
Just out of curiosity, you're not overclocking it, are you? If so, stop doing that.
Some laptops I've seen just seem to run hot. I've had clients who have purchased a cooling kit that fits on the bottom of the case that has fans in it.
