Is the laptop fan working?

It may be time to disassemble the laptop and give the fan a good cleaning.

You should also remove the heatsink and clean/reapply a fresh application of thermal paste.

If this is not something you are comfortable with then it may be time to take the laptop to a local repair shop.
