I installed elementary OS on my Dell inspiron {2.3GHz i3, 2GB Ram}. Everything worked great but running elementary os heats my pc too much causing lots of power consumption.

Any solution for preventing from overheating.

There are some tools that you can use to prevent overheating on your laptop.

A good power management like TLP it's the first choice. To install from terminal :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw 

A tool to monitor and control the CPU temperature, like Thermald

sudo apt-get install termald

There are others tools like indicators (psensor, cpufreq, etc.) that you can install to better performance
