Strange symptoms leading to system hang several minutes after startup

I recently got a very nice G3 Pismo PowerBook that I can't wait to start using. However, there seems to be something wrong with it and I can't quite figure out what it is.

Minutes after booting up the computer, the mouse cursor will suddenly start to move really slowly. This happens regardless of whether I use an actual mouse or the trackpad, and it happens both on the installed Mac OS 9 as well as the Mac OS X installer CD.

The system still works properly, but a little while afterwards (again, several minutes) the system hangs. Both times can vary quite a bit but it usually runs for at least 3-5 minutes before completely freezing.

Another symptom is that I can't use the power button to shut down the computer once it hangs, no matter how long I keep it depressed.

Does anybody have any idea of what's wrong? It seems to work perfectly fine otherwise.

Sounds like a overheating problem to me. Use the following guide to open it up and used some canned air to clean it out. PowerBook G3 Pismo Processor Replacement

Thanks, I'll definitely give this a try as soon as I can (tomorrow I think). I've suspected it was something related to overheating but wasn't sure since it would still boot even immediately after a freeze.
