Question about Computers & Internet
It is the fan and heatsink assembly.
When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

SOURCE: cpu heat
Overheating is a common problem with laptops, and usually a bit of preventative maintenance is all it takes to keep it alive. The bearings on those fans are pretty durable, however dust (and especially pet hair) can build up and slow it down. The motor may still be good, its just that the fan blades are stuck.
Blow some air in the vent OPPOSITE the direction of normal air flow (In most cases it sucks from the bottom and blows out the back/side) and if you see dust bunnies, your doing good. Be THROUGH! Especially if you smoke in your house, this causes the dust to become brown and sticky. = )

SOURCE: GPU heat sink standoffs came off
to do this i use my aoyue hot air gun and, a lot of flux however; there is an eaiser way: get some two part epoxy glue mix it properly and, it should hold quite well or, use clear silicone automobile adhesive sealant by permatex (you can get it at an autoparts store) wait 24 hours before you handle the motherboard i prefer the permatex

SOURCE: USB port getting HOT
These ports can get quite hot & things attached can draw up to 1 Amp of current, and this can make things quite warm over time... as it draws heat away from the device. Keep an eye on it though.

No it is not normal for the graphics to fail unless the heatsink and fan are so badly clogged.
The cpu will stand temperatures of up to 90 degrees but, it gets the main body of the cooling and the graphics chip does not get as well cooled, what happens is the graphics chip then suffers and the solder "bed" it is fixed by melts and the chip detaches.
You may be lucky and by cleaning out the cooling components get it working, but I suspect the motherboard has been damaged now
