Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Gets really hot around the processor
The laptop needs to be cleaned around the fan and vents, this is caused by dust building up on them, it probably sounds very loud when its on. You could get a can of compressed air and try blast the dust out but i would recommend taking it to a professional and have them clean the inside for you. If you are confident enough to have a go yourself then post the model number and I'll tell you how to do it.

SOURCE: Loud fans and Shutting down
I had same problem with a HP Pavillion ZD-7000.
Turned out to be dust had accumulated on the cpu making it run hot. Get a can of the dust off high pressure air and blow it into the fan intakes and output vents. Cleared my problem right up.

Power drain would be a better solution in this case.
1.first shut down the comp
2.unplug the charger
3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .
With the ear bud clean the vents of the fan and check whether it is happening again. And if it is happening again do the bios update of the computer from the hp.com website and check.

I have family members who have also had similar problems. Your overheating problems may be linked to something more serious but there are a few things I would try first.
Step 1 - Use a can of compressed air or an air compressor to blow out the dust from any vents or open areas. Clean out the fans as best you can because that can significantly reduce your noise problem.
Step 2 - Do not use the computer on carpet or bed or your lap or anything that will block vents. A hard surface works best.
Helpful Tip - You may want a usb powered cooling pad. Your laptop sits on top of it and it prevents raises it up off the desk. It plugs into a usb port on your computer and has fans on it that help keep the computer cool. Some even give you extra usb ports.
Step 3 (May not work on all computers - I would install a program that monitors the heat of your computer components. One of the most popular is Speed Fan ( http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php ). Speed Fan can in some cases even adjust your hardware to reduce the temperature.
If all else fails I would call Toshiba or send it into a computer repair service. If a computer is working properly it should not heat up that much which suggests an internal hardware component failure.
Hope this helps and good luck to you.
