sounds like you are overheating.
download speedfan, its free and will help you monitor your temps.

you could also use a can of compressed air to blow out all the vents/fans/cooling blocks and then vacuum all the vents to clear any dust that may be clogging the and vents. do that while the machine totally unplugged of course.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

DO NOT remove the fan. Get a can of compressed air from the office supply store or computer store and use it to blow out everything. Blow out the power supply from both end too.

DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner anywhere near a computer. See the link below.
