If the laptop will be heating as a result of above purpose, you need to place the notebook over a flat, tough surface area if you use it.

Employing a laptop tray to position laptop is the greatest way to prevent that coming from overheating.

This is a common problem with old laptops and can be the result of many things.  Here are a few tips that might help.

1 – Check to see if the small vents are clear of any dust or debris.  Make sure it is kept clean at all times.  There are special instruments called blowers that you can use to clean it.  There is also a small fan inside the laptop that you can clean.  It is called the cooling fan.  It is not uncommon for them to become dirty.  However this is a very technical procedure and should only be handled by a technician.    
 
2 – Make sure your laptop is slightly elevated.  Keeping the laptop flat against a surface doesn’t allow for air to enter and keep the computer cooled.
 
3 – Unplug it.  This may sound strange but you shouldn’t keep your computer charged all the time.  It isn’t designed for that.  There is an option under power settings for this.  Make sure you have it set to power scheme and not always on.  This will allow your computer to stop charging for awhile if it is getting too hot.  You can find the power options under the control panel.  Next change the settings to portable/laptop.  
 
These should help.  If there are any other issues it is always recommended to take your computer or laptop to a professional to see if there are any other complications.

Surprisingly you are right on those things Greensky.

I realized how neglectful I am about my laptop's wellness.LOL..

I checked its vents I haven't cleaned it for a long time.

Then I really do charged my laptop for a long time I guess it is over charged. It's time for me to be more careful with it now. 

Thanks for all your reminders.
