    Hi, I have a Joybook laptop that I got, a Chinese model(long story how I came across it), but it has a problem where it seemingly overheats. When I first received the laptop(it was broken) I tried to fix it. I booted up Windows xp(a Chinese version) and it seemed to work , and run Windows XP. I then tried a windows xp setup disc of mine and it crashed when it started to load the actual setup after, loading hardware. I then tried my Ubuntu 7.04 disc and It would start to load then say "Critical Temperature (101 c) sending Sigkill to all processes" or something like that. I cant imagine the temperature being 101 degrees Celsius?! seems awfully high for 10 seconds into boot up. After a few tries I managed to get Ubuntu installed by keep trying, and now it boots up occasionally into Ubuntu, otherwise just gives me the temperature warning. I can sometimes Get it to start X , other times it wont properly load the display. I cant determine what to do next, taking it apart is sort of difficult, but im up for the task if it could possibly help.I was going to open it, but I didnt exactly know what to look for. Well hopefully I can get some replies , Ill check back frequently, Thanks.
