Leave the system at the BIOS setup, or boot with a Ubuntu boot disk to rule out Windows, software, and driver issues. From there, we can start lookign at hardware problems. Edit: Which are probably going to be dust build up on a heatsink, by the way. Best get your screwdriver and the earbuds out.
Also check the Lenovo site as they often have tech manuals for repair technicians which show which screws to take out in which order etc - used this for a T40 and T40p and saved a whole lot of grief. Dig a little and you shoudl find them - pdfs with diagrams and everything right down to the cable connections etc.

good luck!
thank you all ill give it a go!!
