Amit Lal, it is possible that you do have some dirty air inlet openings as well as a dirty fan. I would disassemble the laptop. clean it properly. Clean or replace the fan, and reapply the thermal paste on the processor. Use these guides to work on your computer. You also want to make sure that you keep the airvents free off any obstruction and may be get a cooling pad. Hope this helps, good luck.
