but seriously, I had the same problem with my laptop overheating but it is about 2 years old, so in order to fix it i opened it up and reapplied thermal paste to my GPU. Themal paste you can buy at a radioshack for about 6 dollars, andthe procedure isnt that hard.
this article will tell you all you need to know, goodluck!
PS: First check the fans, you will know the thermal paste is bad if its "hard". thermal paste has the consistancy of wet clay usually.
EDIT: Also if you don't know what your doing with your computer/are too afraid to learn and ARE under warrenty id recommend sending it in, but for me a month without my laptop is unacceptable so DIY is the best option. If you feel uncomfortable doing it yourself bring it somewhere and tell them specifically to reapply the thermal paste, Dont bring it to best buy if you live in the states, they rip you off really hardcore.
