Turn off your computer. Clean out all the dust inside it, esp on your cpu and gpu. Reboot and install Everest and check all your temps. Report back.

This should be in the hardware problem section or OS problem section.

I think the power supply shut itself down due to power overload / running too hot. Hence the high fan speed on boot, and why the system worked again after letting it cool down for a while.
