I came home tonight to find my dell inspiron 1720 frozen. I restarted it and it said a message about it being warm and it froze. It would load windows then shut down. Constantly.

should I let it warm down or what?

Be sure to have the laptop on a solid surface. Make sure there is nothing blocking the back of the laptop where the air intake vents are.
You might want to invest in a can of compressed air. You can direct the nozzle inside the vent and give it a couple of blasts. Then stick the nozzle in the exhaust on the bottom and do the same thing
