The most likely cause for this happening suddenly is that the fan has stopped working. The simplest way to check this is to listen to see if you get the 'whirring' noise as it spins or can feel air coming out of the exhaust vents.

 

Other possible causes for 'sudden' heating are a build up of dust and dirt reaching a critical level or a failure of the thermal bond between the processor and the heat sink/heat pipe.

 

Dealing with any or all of these is going to require a certain amount of dismantling. Search YouTube with the make and model of your laptop + fan or + heatsink and you will almost certainly find videos on how to do it. If you have any other problems or questions, post back.
