I had a Sony laptop that I had bought from a coworker, that I had the same issues of fan noise and cycling off an on. I opened it up to find lint just packed around the CPU and heatsink, ram, fan. Took it to work and used the air compressor to blow all of it out, I was careful not to over speed the fan by blowing air over it. Your problem may be the same.

HTH, Rick
