It's a problem I used to get with Compaq laptops. Two solutions that worked:
1) Unscrew the cover, dust off the fan (which had collected excessive dust) and away it went for a few more weeks.
2) I found instructions for one model to update the BIOS which changed the fan speed. A bit beyond my techie understanding - I just followed the instructions and it worked.
Not had an overheating problem with my De1l. They just have shit power supply leads instead!
