    This is a general suggestion for laptops. Open the computer and remove the small cooling fans and soak the fans in light sewing machine oil. Wipe the oil off and reinstall the fans. Some of the oil will stay in the small bearing. Otherwise change your fan but it sounds like your fan is just slowing down thus the cooling effect is degraded. You of course should remove all the dust and lint that you find as well.
