I have a Toshiba laptop computer that is constantly overheating. Is there a way to fix this and is this normal? When I restart it or even try to turn it on when it is still hot it will not turn on.

As the previous people who have commented, well said. To avoid overheating never block the exhaust fan of the laptop. And it is strongly suggested that you buy a laptop stand with a usb fan attached to ventilate the heat off. once in a while have your laptop cleaned of dust especially the one located in the exhaust of your laptop. as it accumulates dust it will block the airflow which will cause overheating of components inside your laptop.

If your computer was exposed to dust or you used it a lot. Your laptop is heating because it can't take a breath. You have to take it to peaces and clean it good. Also put a paste between the fan and the processor after the cleaning. If you can't do that go to a computer service and explain them what's the problem. But be aware that some services do not clean the whole laptop. So go to a service where the people are upright.
