open the cpu cabinet and remove the dust by any means. next, remove the ram, clean the ram, clean the ram slots and put it back. also, try drying the cabinet as this may be due to moisture getting absorbed in the cabinet due to being in a less ventilated place.
I have a intel dg33bu.Have a look at the internel fans.Are they clean.
The processor fan and heat sink need to be clean of dust and dirt.
Last- It may be a good idea to put some fresh thermal paste on the processor.
What you are describing sounds like a heat issue,runs,heats up then shuts down.
The reason for the sudden shut down of your computer is because of overheating of the 'case', where the CPU is mounted. Overheating can be due to dust accumulation on the heat sink, which prevents dissipation of heat. The possible solution to combat overheating issue is to keep the laptop dust free by cleaning out debris at the vents frequently. Note that a laptop has a much smaller cooling area in comparison with desktops and hence laptops tend to accumulate dust a lot quicker than desktops. This is because all the dust/debris, in the case of laptops, accumulate in the cooling fins.

Playstation 3 overheating is often caused by one of the following issues: poor ventilation of the unit, excessive dust build up in the unit, or a problem with the cooling fan itself. Clean the fan out with some compressed air and make sure it is getting proper ventalation
This might be a heating issue. Considering its 6 years old pop open the case and use dust off and spray it down until there isnt any dust left near, in or around the heat sink. try that and if it doesn't work try re-seating the heat sink on the possessor and clean off all the thermal paste and re apply some new thermal paste.
The freezing itself is most likely due to friction and heat created in the hard drive inside the Zune. The excessive heat you feel is probably due to the same problem.
I would suggest (if you are tech savy) opening the Zune (you can look up instructions easily) and cleaning out any dust you see inside the case. There COULD be a battery issue, so making sure the insides are clean and dust free is the first step!
You can use a small can of compressed air (available at any best buy, office max, office depot, etc.) to gently clean out any particles or dust. Best of luck!
If it's overheating it's possible that either there's a problem with the fan, or the fan/heatsink is clogged with dust. If you know how to open up the laptop you can do that and use a can of compressed air to clean it out which may solve the problem. If not you'll have to replace the fan.
