    3) My laptop felt really hot when I touched it.
    PC will shut down instantly if CPU goes over 100C max 110C

    GPU can afford it self 90C but for CPU it a bit too much.
    If your PC is under warranty you will most likely get a free CPU repaste, otherwise you can ask a friend or somebody to do repastement for you, that's not expensive procedure, cca 15 bucks.

    In addition clearing dust from PC must be done, coz that causes overheat too for all components.
    Improving cooling system also if the above 2 things do not work.

    I had the same issue, ignored the fact and my GPU got burned in about 2 months.
    Can you get a CPU repaste on a laptop?

    Yes, that's possible.
    It also possible to do it on your own.

    But as I said the safest method is to let somebody else who understands the procedure to do it for you.
    improper CPU handling can cause more damage than the whole laptop is worth, therefore be careful.

    Ok and is there anything that I can do to cool down my laptop software wise instead of physical.

    There is no such thing as software cooler for laptops.
    You can buy an external cooler for laptop, which is put below laptop and provides extra cooling and prevents dust from coming into laptop.

    I would not advise this because advantage is very small, you'll be able to play games, but hardware will still suffer from high temp.
    Another option is to stop playing games, but thats bad too I guess

    Ok, I think I will mark this thread as solved because if my laptop over heats after doing all the solutions you recommended I am truly screwed. Thanks for the help man.
