I would appreciate any help; my unit is a Pavillion dm3. Thank you so much.

The laptop has some age on it. Dirt and dust can clog the fan.
1. Get strong compressed air and blow it in the fan grille while you hold the fan blades from spinning with a paperclip shoved in there.
2. Open the laptop and remove the heatsink/fan and clean out dust, apply new thermal compound between the heatsink and processor.
3. Last resort-replace the fan and heatsink. They are not expensive so some people skip #2 and head straight to #3 if #1 fails.
