Amber Renee Scott, the first thing I would advice you to do, is to download the service manual from here. Then disassemble your laptop. Clean out all the air vents, and the fan. Make sure that the fan is in good working condition, if unsure, replace it. Clean the thermal paste off and reapply, using good thermal paste (most people swear by Arctic Silver 5) If unsure how to do that check for instructions on here. Once cleaned and new thermal paste applied, reassemble your computer and re-evaluate. Always make sure that the airflow is non-obstructed. do not leave your laptop on a soft surface like pillows or blankets, this will increase the overheating.Hope this helps, good luck
