Have you tried setting the clocks back to stock?  One shouldn't try to over clock a laptop....they run hot as it is with little airflow.

Even so, 75 degrees on a mobility chip is nothing, sounds more like the OC isn't stable. But as Canis said you really shouldn't overclock a laptop, their cooling systems can only handle a certain amount and the airflow is very restricted, so components are often underclocked from stock specs to fit a design.

You shouldn't overclock laptops. It can be done though (I've had much success with Turion/nforce models). I particularly wouldn't bother with that PoS (intel), but if you do, keep it on an aluminum cooling pad.
