Overheating of laptop

I am faced with a problem recently where my laptop gets overheated within just an hour of usage. I ultimately have to shut it down for some time to allow it to cool. Can somebody give me a helpful solution?

Sorry. Too little to work with.

No make, model, age or if the maintenance is kept up. Some laptop owners never knew that seasonal use of the canned air is required (not optional) to keep the laptop away from service counters.

As details are missing, I can't give much advice.

It could be the fan problem.

May I ask for how long you have used your laptop? After a long time of usage, the fan might fail in working well. You can use an external cooling fan to resolve this problem.
