When you place a notebook/laptop in your lap you are restricting the airflow through the inside of the case.  It should only be run on a flat and firm surface, like a table top.

The intake vent on this computer is smack dab in the middle of the bottom.

the intake vent would that be an area that takes in air? if so then yes its in the middle and that was another extremely hot spot  but how can i tell if the input and output are working correctly bc i dont want to burn up my laptop

You have another topic open which I've responded to.  In that topic I asked you to download and post a Speccy snapshot.  Part of the information in it will be the temperatures of devices inside the case.

Your CPU is running at 55C, that's within normal tolerances, at least for a portable computer.

 

You have another topic started to address this problem, I would suggest you pursue this topic there.
