sounds like a bad CPU fan, take the cover off of the computer and start
it up, observe how fast the fan on the CPU is running. if it's not
running at all, that's your problem. turn the computer off and do not
start it again until you've replaced it, you can seriously burn stuff
out if it continues to run like that. also, is there a lot of clutter
in the case? wires everywhere? u may want to consider getting some
twist-ties or rubber bands or whatever and using them to clean up the
mess to allow proper ventilation of the system and get heat out of
there... this sounds like the most logical problem/solution to me, but
of course i could be wrong.. give this a go and see what happens.
