Usually when this happens it is due to the thermal monitor in the cpu telling the system it is overheating. This can be caused by a weak or worn out cpu heatsink/fan. I would recommend replacing the heatsink/fan assembly with a new one making sure to use a good quality thermal grease between the heatsink & cpu. Reassemble and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
