    Check the video card for dust and that the fan is running normally. Make sure the fan is clean and free of dust

    You are going to have to re-install the CPU heatsink. You will have to clean off the old thermal paste and apply a small amount of new paste

    Do you have a friend or family member that can do this for you? A computer service shop can do it for you too
