Laptop specs.

For the CPU to get this hot under moderate load (60% isn't idle), something has to be wrong with the heatsink. The two most obvious things to check would be clogged fan intake/exhaust and dead/stuck fan, another possibility would be the CPU block getting loose somehow.

Yeah that might be the reason, recently My laptop had quite a serious jerk while pulling from the table. So please tell me how to fix it?
The only way to fix a displaced heatsink would be to take the laptop apart until you can access the heatsink and whatever retention mechanism is on it, remove it if possible, assess possible damage to its mounting mechanism, re-paste the CPU/heatsink, put it all back together and hope this fixes it.
