It's REALLY hot?

Just ask it if it wants a drink or summit', maybe a night on the town...maybe it feels the same way about you? :)

[EDIT] I kid you! But i'm hopeless with LapTops! ;)

Turn it off and leave it somewhere cool for a couple of hours.

one thing you can do is make sure that there is a fan in the case and that it works properly. another thing you can do is try out one of those laptop cooling thingies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laptop_cooler) that they sell at WalMart - you just put your laptop on top of the thingie and its supposed to keep it cool. (i cant actually verify its effectiveness though).

hm that can't be good coz 23 is ok and 1 h 33 mins not so long. something is wrong with the fan then ... it's better if you send it to repair

The fan or the ventilation grills are possibly filled with dust...
What surface did you place your laptop on? Table or e.g. a sofa?

^ Then the fan is [nearly] dead or/and ventilation grills are filled with dust.
