Ok bit more.

Apparently lappy would not turn off. Screen went off but power led stayed lit unless batt pulled.

Took off heatsink from CPU and thermal paste is dry.

Is it possible the CPU might be dead due to overheating. When i got it the bag it was in was very warm.

Did say they had a virus. Anyway a virus could have shut off fan or bypassed something to cause overheat?
