Blow loads of air onto the heat spot. A decent (not those puny fan one) laptop cooler should do it.

 

You could easily know your laptop model from dxdiag (type it on search panel) if there's any.

Humor me, as you should do.

 

Daily drivers, below.

You're welcome. You're not going to be fixing much if you can't even be bothered to flip your laptop around to find the model number or serial number.

Ironically the overheating has worn off the sticker

If you take a picture of the laptop, someone might be able to identify it

And maybe log temperatures, usually a Chip can't overheat by all means.

Maybe Fans are dusty or Thermalpaste is bad, increasing temperatures.
