Most likely it is the processor. It could be the logic board as well, but the symptoms you describe are classic processor failure. We sell the processor at our online store...upgrades too. You can also send the unit in to us and we'll repair it for you. Email us at support@powerbookmedic.com.

A small amount of chips just go bad after a while. There is nothing really that can be done to prevent it.
