I successfully kept a friends laptop cool enough to play Unreal by elevating it on four post it note pads. That is until the room itself got too hot. I have noted that laptop coolers do this with the addition of a fan. One of your pictures states that the fan vent is blocked. Clearing that would be the first step to take.
I placed one note pad under each corner of the laptop.
that sounds like a good idea. a blocked vent inhibits the already poor airflow on a laptop. if you buy a real mat with fans, its important to build a gasket out of foam to make sure the cooling air reaches the laptop

Buy a new fan and cool it

just chill
and i think we already established that a new fan would help.

Have you overclocked it at all? IIRC K6's only go up to 300mhz.

i didnt overclock it but it says 366mhz
you can overclock laptops? i thought the bioses were locked, and the cooling system could not handle it anyways.

Open the case and clean it out with a vacuum or compressed air.
