Continual overheating will eventually cause the CPU to fail.
The overheating is usually caused by blocked vents and or dust build up on the heatsink and/or fan. Remove this dust from the heatsink and fan and this should fix your overheating problem, unless you have a faulty fan, in this case you will need to replace the fan.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if you can see what is happening on that.
It is a possibility that your inverter is faulty and will need to be replaced. They will normally power on for a few seconds, then cut out.
Remember to set the laptop to use the external monitor with the function keys.
