Your laptop overheats when running at its rated frequency?  That's your
answer.  Hardware error.  Most likely incorrect application of heat
transfer compound between the CPU and the heatsink, or blocked or
defective fans.  If your CPU has overheated even once, you can't trust
it any more, unless it has an automatic cutoff like Core and Core 2.
