lenovo s10e wont boot from hdd or usb when warm

I have  ownd my  Lenvo S10e about 1 year now 

and now it  begins to **bleep**in up

 

I have tryd with and without  hdd and booting up live linux from  USB Works  good untill the lenovo s10e begins to be hot, then  i got to  boot then blank screen

same hapen when using  the hdd,

 

I have bin usubg the XBMC-9.11 live linux

Its  an media senter for linux

I use it to see movies onto my  bigscreen tv and use my  linux server as media server

 

When the  lenovo is coold i can start xbmc no problem 

I  take a movie look on it when the movir is  finisht and i go back Whole computer is hangup

Now i cant doing any more looking on movie untill the computer has bin coold again

 

This is happening with and with out HDD installed !

So what is this ?

Is it som thing that  be to work  ?

 

It is like  it cuts of  SATA and USB when it  worm !

 

Sorry for my bad  english..

It does sound like it is overheating, are the air vents clear and the fan free to turn? Has it taken a knock that might have moved the heatsink off the processor?

The s10e has various temp. sensors, why not check them out during your usage.

 

Your fans not running is a definate problem though, you are certainly overheating eventually if they're not running at all.

Yes i did try to get the  temp info from lm-sensors but did not get any cpu temp info or  fan info.

I can tell that the Fan dont work at all running Linux !

Fan only works with Windows ! Why i dont know

I  tryd my Ubuntu 9.10 - 10.04 without Sacsess, fan still off

 

Booted up Windows Xp Pro from a Usb stick and the fan started from then boot of windows install  untill i self  shoutdown the computer !

 

So linux dont have any  drivers to control the Lenovo S10e fan ?

Actually, it was my impression that the system BIOS controlled the fan. No software drivers necessary.

 

I just ran a live Linux CD and my fan ran the whole time. You running BIOS 96 for the s10e? If not, I'd upgrade and see what happens or maybe even reflash it if you already do.
