components can be damaged by overheating-that goes without saying. i'm willing to bet if its a progressive problem its either a dying fan or thermal paste drying on the cpu. if you can't do it yourself see if you can get a techie to remove the heatsink fan from the cpu and replace the thermal compound with arctic silver 5.
