The cooling fan may need cleaned or replaced. It's better to disassemble and clean rather than blow air through the port on these.

You've got nothing to lose by blasting a shot of compressed air into the cooling vents, it may solve the problem. Disassembling a laptop to get at the cooling fan can be tricky business.
