Have a sony vaio pcg that is over heating can you replace the thermostat on the motherboard or is it with the fan/heat sink unit or is it more likely the fan which isn't turning on

Most likely it is not the fan unless you cannot feel air blowing out or the fan noise. It is rather an accumulation of dust in the radiator vents and fan housing. this will necessitate a partial stripdown to clear it properly, at a pinch you can try vaccuming out the dust, but a full claening is better

It really sounds like SP3 installing was coincidental.You're not getting to the point that Windows even starts,so it becomes a hardware issue.
Sometimes laptop batteries are hidden under panels and boards you remove to get at things below.
Since you've already taken the machine apart,try it again looking under everything you remove.Remember that laptops don't necessarily use the standard size desktop battery,they're usually smaller.
Make sure Everything is plugged back in when you put it back together.
Other than that,you could very well have a bad Ram stick,try using them one at a time in the bottom slot.
A CPU failure usually allows the POST screen.

Laptop motherboard are specific to each model and aren't sold separately or to customers. The only other way than Sony or an approved repair shop (which will be unreasonably expensive) is to get one from a junked or sold for parts laptop.

By removing the heatsink and cleaning it, you may have wipe d the heat sink compund, or the heatsink is not well attached to the base and is not making full contact with the CPU.
Check for this two conditions, and correct them.
Everything should be fine.

Sony vaio pcg fx301 clock speed

You'd have to go into the bios and change the CPU speed or the BUS speed. I wouldn't recommend OCing a laptop, though, as they tend to get hot enough w/o it.
