Question about HP ProBook 4510s Notebook
The feet may have popped off the bottom, where the vents are located. Either replace the small feet (they just stick on) or set the laptop on a cooling stand so that the bottom is exposed to the air. You may also want to clean the vents.

Most laptops overheat because the fan intake is blocked either from placing the laptop on a soft surface or by dust. In either case you will need to let it cool down before turning it back on (may take up to 30 min). If you suspect that dust is blocking the fan/heatsink, get a compressed air can and try to clean it now (that will cool down the laptop too). If I could be of further assistance, let me know.

Sometimes overheating is caused by a fan malfunction. If the fan is completely stuck, the laptop will show an error message immediately after starting. However in rare cases the fan's fins are just loose or broken and won't move enough air to cool the laptop.
In either case you should try cleaning the fan(s) and heatsink(s) with compressed air. That is best done outside, as usually there is a surprising amount of dust accumulated in there. If the laptop continues to overheat, you will need to bring it to a repair shop.
