If its overhaeting with a cooler

then 1 make sure its not overclocked
2. strip it down and clean the fan, grills and heatsink.

Did you buy it new or second hand?

if new unlikely to be overclocked

if second hand go into the BIOS and use the "load default settings" option.

I'm not familiar with it, found one reference to overheating, first couple of paragraphs.

I guess normal rules apply,
Can you hear the fan work OK ? make sure it does actually run.
Does it overheat when not running any applications... and has it always done it from new.
Worth scanning for malware ?
Can you pin the problem down to any particular event or update/software install etc
The last resort is a factory reinstall, and just see how it behaves, then note the effect of applications etc as you add them.

If this is the same laptop then you seem to have a number of problems click here and click here. I wonder if there is any relationship between the problems.
