I guess you should clean out the fins on the CPU cooler, there's probably a lot of dust clogged up in there.
(If you dont want to take your laptop to bits, get some compressed air (or just blow) into the CPU exhaust vent (when the laptop is off) to dislodge trapped dust. But this isn't as effective as taking it to bits and cleaning).

And while you are at it, you could change out the TIM on the CPU/Heatsink.
