The S models have had heating issues from the beginning. Didin't you check before purchase at a retail store? Maybe lap cooler might work, if its too burdensome, maybe return it. If not, guess you're stuck. Even though its a pentium M, sony didn't do too of a good job. You're not the first usser to complain
