This helped a LOT for me. Mine was running very hot & finally actually shut down with some sort of alarm that helps protect it when it overheats giving me a scary warning. What happened was my fan vents were so filled with accumulated dust, it wasn't properly cooling as it did when it was new. I searched the web high & low & finally someone said to pull out the vacuum hose & gently lay it on its side then put the hose on the side & bottom to suck the blockage. After doing this, it was like magic. Sure it runs hot when I'm doing something, but the extreme dangerous temperatures & warnings were GONE.
The other thing is, well I'm not sure if you have it set on a desk or on your lap, but the bottom & side vents need to have space to breathe to cool the computer . I would buy some of those rubber sticker things & put them on the bottom so there is space. If you're setting it on a desk this will suffice. If you are rather using on your lap, I'd find something with vents & set that underneath the laptop. I know they sell lap pads that allow air to flow between your lap & the bottom of the computer.
I'd get one maybe like this one
or this one
That little vacuum tip was SUCH a great help, now it;s a normal temperature that matches how I'm using it without overheating I haven't had ANY problems with overheating ever since.
Try that & use a vented pad & stick those rubber things on the bottom as well. I tried just about everything I could think of & find on the net beforehand & this was the 1 thing that REALLY worked.

Use compressed air to blow out the intake and exhaust vents until no more dust comes out. Make sure the fans are spinning properly and that heated air is coming out the vents. You could add a cooling pad and a fan across the keyboard.
