I don't know if this is a good idea or not, but my laptop has some problems cooling and even with a pad it easily goes to high temperatures.

i got a r710 samsung laptop
4gb ram
nvidea geforce gt 130m video card
intel core 2 Quad cpu Q9000 @ 2 GHZ

so would it be a viable option to get new hardware for my laptop, and if so, which video card & processor should i buy.

playing any game brings my cores to 90-100 even on minimum settings.

If upgrading is not a viable option or cost effective, what are my other options?

since it's only just over a year old i'd rather not buy a new one.

Have you tried cleaning out the dust in the fan?

planning to let someone else do that for me, i'm uncomfortable with doing that myself

but even if i would let that be done i'd still go for a better processor/gfx card.

my cores get to 100 C very easily.

It's hard to replace the processor since the laptop motherboard is limited.
