You cleaned it out? Hint: canned air.

Be conscious of where the air intake and exhaust are. For example, if your exhaust is on the bottom, do not run your laptop on a soft surface that can block it (foam, cushion, tablecloth, your legs).

Also, there are Notebook Coolers.

if you know how to open the laptop remove the fun and replace it an around the processor use any silicon compound to mount the heatsink to the procesor this will greatly reduce the thermal generation around the processor

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
