Two days ago my laptop started lagging while typing and while starting videos (such as youtube). For several months it has run quite hot at least once a day, Which I have come to expect with laptops in general, but mention it because it might be related. Could the lagging be a video card problem or a ram issue?

Thank you infinitely for your help.

The lagging problem would not come from a video or RAM issue. They would exhibit a certain booting/unbootable and pixelated problem. Hard drive, infections and thermal events are just some that would contribute to your problem. Download Speccy from this link and check also this guide.

Your laptop has high temperature readings. Any internal components or worse the mobo might give in, take it to repair shop if you are not familiar with applying some thermal paste and cleaning the laptop thoroughly.

I am familiar with applying thermal paste, just fixed my desktop.
I found this video on youtube and it looks like I'll have to completely disassemble my laptop to reach the CPU/GPU.
Is this true??

If your up to the task, check for the online manual if necessary.It will be a learning experience. Maybe labeling the laptop parts by number when removed and putting the screws by size would help you not get confused when trying to assemble back.
