Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook ?

My IBM thinkpad R40 type 2682 runs fine for a few minutes, then the display screen starts to distort and then freezes completely, and freezes my computer. i can shut it off and turn it back on and in a few minutes it does the same thing again. I do get the occasional Fan error message at startup as well and have to reboot. can you help me please?

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard.
