Dell Inspiron 5100 Laptop Overheating.

I followed the manual instructions to remove the keyboard and the EMI Shield. THANKS A BUNCH! After spending 20 minutes cleaning out the heatsink and fan it runs much cooler now. Any assistance would be appreciated. http://mffonline.com/dell-inspiron/dell-inspiron-5100-will-not-post.php

You may also have to remove the kb to get access to the cpu area. Before this, my fan was running at max speed at all times. it shuts down and will NOT startup. De-power the unit.

Any suggestions? I took out the processor, put it back in and got the no video thing.
