Question Laptop Cooling

As some of you might know, my laptop overheats like the back of my legs on a plastic car seat in Aug. So what's the best way to fix it since Best Buy can't seem to do it? Do it myself!

Basically, I'm just curious on where to get fans and other cooling parts for laptops. I would like to get a quieter, more powerful case and CPU fan (is there a case fan?), and I also plan on reapplying thermal paste which I already have. Let me know where I can get these things or what else I can do about it. Thanks!

Getting complaints about your posting language again.

Hah, I usually have it on a cooling pad, and it still overheats (though not as much).

Hmmm, I'm talking about internal cooling though. Like actual CPU fans and stuff. I already have a cooling pad, and it doesn't help very much.

The only thing that's usually air cooled (by fan, not passively) is the CPU. Other than that, I guess you could experiment with it...
