hey guys i fixed this...
its over heatings the CPU and GPU
you need to disassemble it... http://www.llamma.com/PS3/repair/PS3_disassembly_tutorial.htm
then you need to replace the thermal compound with artic silver 5 as the stuff sony has put on is very dry and cracked, i have done this 4 7 of my mates PS3'S and they all work fine.
only do this if its out of warrently, if you removin the sticker on it, it shines through void

Sony used a bad batch of lasers on earlier models of ps3. Mostly 40 and 60 gig but like any other electrical component it has the chance of taking a s**t. Sony will replace or repair your system if the warranty sticker is still on the console, if now open the BD and replace the laser with a new laser (not refurbished). I have taken hundreds of these apart and its always the same. The laser burns out mostly due to **** on the disk itself so be sure to have nothing on the disk.
