75C for what? GPU? CPU?

Best thing to do would be to buy new thermal paste, remove the heatsinks for the GPU/CPU both and clean off the old factory thermal paste. Then apply new thermal paste and re-assemble.

I've done it to both my gaming laptops, as well as a friends. Helps significantly (20*C GPU drop on my Asus G73, 10*C GPU drop on my MSI GT780DX, and a 10*C GPU drop on my buddy's Sony Vaio).

blowing out and dust bunnies and debris from the fan and heatsink fins might help somewhat ..........and you won't need to take it all apart

Good first step usually, but factory paste isn't great most of the time, especially with overheating laptops.

Depends on the hardware in question because "gaming laptop" isn't always relevant. 75c could be normal.

no doubt but some people can possibly disassemble a laptop and not put it back together or it might not boot again ever if they are not familiar with taking laptops apart

My Alienware runs 75C then turns on the fans.

Laptop fan profiles are horrible.

Depends entirely on the laptop.

My Asus was a PITA to take apart - had to disassemble the whole thing, literally because the heatsinks were on the keyboard side of the motherboard.

My MSI... take off the bottom access panel using 5 screws, and then another 5 screws for the CPU/GPU heatsinks.

My friend's VAIO..similar to my MSI, except the entire bottom plate comes off instead of just an access panel.

That's why I like my MSI - I can turn on the 100% fan boost whenever I want .
