Default CPU Temp Threshold error

I am doing some work on a friends computer and I need some help diagnosing what the problem is.

It is a SystemMax computer with a Biostar P4M800-M7A mobo and a pentium d processor.

The power supply unit is ruined and I test it with another from mine. The hard drive is good, RAM is ok, I tested both of them in my computer and they run great.

The computer powers up and gets through the grub loader, I select to start Linux Mint and it either freezes, gives me a "cpu temp threshold" error msg or it gives me a "cannot sync" error.

How can I tell if it is the mobo or cpu? I feel like I have done enough trouble shooting to isolate it to either of those but if anyone has any other ideas they are welcome.

The hard drive may be OK, but the files could have been corrupted.
