  1. I'm looking at some pictures of that Lap top and it appears there are vents directly in the middle on the bottom. Try not blocking those. My brother had a Dell that would overheat and he would have to stick a pencil or pen under it so that it would have more breathing space. You could try getting a Cooling pad like this

    Here is the picture I was looking at. Is this what yours looks like?
