Laptop running hot

The last couple of days my laptop has become very noisey (fan noise) and started running hot.

The only modification I've made is to install a USB wireless connetion (i've disables the on board card) that goes with my new N+ router but I can't see how this is causing the issue.

Is there anything I can so to track down the issue?

Thanks

Use a vacuum to suck out all the dirt from the grills.

If still noisy then you will need to strip and replace the fan.
