Easiest solutions? You could try a cooling pad. Laptops sometimes just get very warm, in fact most laptop CPUs are rated to take up to 100C. But a cooling pad can do wonders for laptops and are normally very cheap.

If your in the US go to a computer store like Best Buy and buy a cooling pad. Sometimes it helps sometimes they still overheat. Laptops just don't have the cooling like desktops do.

Either you, or someone you trust, can do a little dis-assembly and clean out any dust and dirt that may have accumulated.

Because of previous heat issues, there may also be a BIOS update available whose chief function is to run the fan(s) at higher RPMs to reduce temps.

Otherwise, keep the vents clear and consider a cooling pad as noted.
