If it's an older system, break that thing open and clean it! ^^ If it a newer system, or you just don't feel like stripping it to clean it, then use an air compressor to blow the crud built up in the back of the system. Make sure the compressor hose is dry, as you don't want water to get inside your system. Good luck, and I hope this helps.
My guess is its going to die soon.
I would back up most of your stuff on a hard drive if possible. If it gets that far. I had this happen to my 40GB PS3 about a year ago. It turned on for 5 minutes then off. Soon after that it didn't turn on. And it was making really loud fan noises.
What are the specs of your PS3 and was it making loud fan noises before?
Consider buying a new PS3 slim?
A quick guess that i just thought is try doing the fan test before turning it on.
Turn Off PS3 completely (switch in back)
Hold eject button and Turn on switch.
Don't do anything your fan is just fine it's just running faster to keep it cool when you hear a clicking sound at high speed then you should be worried about it cause your fan is failing and should be replaced
i had the same problem once make sure that the ps3 is not on a carpet, or move it to a hard suface and a more ventilated area,, that is probably the best solution since the ps3 requires alot of cooling down.
