Default Is this a cpu issue?

I picked up a friends laptop, its a toshiba Satelite A78-S209. he usually always keep it on a external fan. I brought it back to my house and powered it on, everything was working fine for about 30 mins and than the power was about to die. I pluged in the jack and than it told me it was going into hibernation. So I pressed the power button for it to come back on and NOTHING. It comes on for 2 secs and than powers off, I get no visual or anything like that. I believe this is a over heating issue, I just wanted to check with some of you to make sure first... So whats your suggestion on this?

It sound like it is overheating. Its built to shut down to prevent damage to your hardware.

yup I already popped off the keyboard I have taken apart 3 laptops before. They seem pretty easy, but any way where the **** is the cpu located on this one? lol I see a chip that looks like a cpu, but there isnt a release lever or anything on it, it seems if its soldered down. Because I wanna put some more thermal paste on it and check the fans

never mind found it lol. I didnt know that cpu was soldered to motherboards on laptops wow. That kinda suxs lol.
