Why is my Compaq Presario CQ62-219WM shutting down and saying it is overheating?

I have an 8 month old Compaq Presario CQ62-219WM.  After starting, it shuts down after 6-10 minutes.  After restarting the following error message is listed "The system BIOS has detected your notebook PC was previously shut down to avoid overheating.  . . . System Temperature (90D)".

 

The computer vents are not blocked, the computer is not hot to the touch, and no other issues are immediately identifiable.  The operating system is Windows 7.  The start up test resulted in a successful pass.  Can someone tell me what the solution to my problem is?.  Will I need to send the computer to the company for repairs?  Is this a BIOS issue?
