It is possible you have a lot of dust depending on your environment. What I would recommend is turning off the computer, unplugging it, and getting a can of air. Blow into all vents on the sides and back (that is what I do, and it seems to work well even without opening up the case). Just make sure the computer is off and unplugged so as not to damage any components that are running, such as fans. See if it fixes the issue.
Make sure you follow the can of air instructions, as well, and keep the can as upright as possible to prevent any liquid in the can from entering into the computer. You may have to put your computer case up on a chair or desk to do so.
Additionally, as long as you are doing the above, follow these steps:
1. Go into your BIOS and load default settings to clear the CMOS memory.
2. Save Settings and exit the BIOS.
3. Turn off the computer.
4. Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector.
5. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to clear the software connections between the BIOS and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
6. Blow out the computer with the can of air
7. Plug the computer back into the wall.
8. Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware, and post back how it runs.
