As you seem to realise, this is almost certainly due to over-heating. As well as the fan, make sure that the CPU is very clean and clear of dust, use a Compressed Air blower if possible. Also when in use make sure the laptop has plenty of clear air-space around and under it - a laptop cooler stand might be a good buy, they are not very expensive.
