Use a cooling pad, never keep a laptop on your lap, have another fan blow on the lpatop if this is a continuing problem.
Is your laptop clogged with dust?
Also, what are your CPU and GPU temps?

Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.

Some flash applications take more processing power than others, and flash can easily get a processor to peak.
