Dear friend
Your laptop is dead.
The Nvidia's chipset (8600M GS) is dead due to heating (this is common problem for laptop using this defected chips)
I get the same trouble than you gzt, and I sent it to chinese computer buyer near my town, he contacted Fujitsu in China and the cost of new motherboard is very cheap.
Asking Fujitsu in france, the reparation costs me about 240€ instead of 160€ with the chinese guy.
