Had some similar problem with my old laptop.
I used it for about 4 years without ever cleaning it, to the point where I couldn't even play games anymore.
One day, I just opened it clean it, and I quickly found the root of the problems.
Between the fan and the heatsink was a 1cm thick layer of dust.
After removing that, it ran smoothly again.
