The first thing that comes to mind is an accumulation of dust and dirt and hair in the cooling fins of the processor heatsink.
One possible way to clean this out is to get a "can of air" and blow directly into the fan on the bottom of the laptop. This pressurized air should move most accumulations out the back/side of the laptop and allow your heatsink/fan combination to cool your processor at a much better rate.
The best way, in my opinion, would be to remove the fan/heatink assembly and clean the dust and dirt and other accumulated things out also using the "can of air" but would give you much better visual clarity as to whether or not it is clean.
Taking the heatsink and fan assembly out of the laptop is not for the faint of heart as you are taking your computer apart and run the risk of electro static shock or other broken parts if not done carefully and properly.
Hope this helps,
