the overheating could happend for the following reasons:
-check that the fan is working and the vents are not blocked. do not put the laptop on the sofa or the bed. glass may also increase the temperature.
-check that the bios is up to date. maybe the fan is not working fast enough
-are you playing a lot of games or using an application(like video editing) that uses the graphics card intensively?
to check your fan speed and temperature of your laptop
