Hi,

I have had PB's of the aluminum type up to 1.42GHz they would get very warm on the underside not as hot at my MBP but still hot..

The last one I had i think it was having a similar issue as you may be seeing
with out knowing for sure but the video chips if they over heat have a
tendency to separate from the logicboard. causing lines across the screen
or just instant freeze ups..

try the normal stuff .. boot up holding the command (apple) and the s key
disk check fsck -fy

re-setting via openfirmware holding the o, f, opt and command
type
reset-nvram
reset-all

hold down the alt shift and option key (when off) and press the pwr button

check the memory .. just normal items .. if all else fails try a chill mat and
see if you can reduce the temp and if that makes it stable .. you may be
looking at a logic board or something else that only a mac shop can help
with..

Good luck.
