well, if you're saying system interrupts.. chances are something hardware is broken and messing with things.

ps2 mice is just the tip of the iceberg, but it's an easy thing to overlook.

Silicon gets old. It may be that your CPU or a related component has some worn out switches that cause it to produce more errors and therefore require more error correction.

You should expect the CPU usage to be high with a e5700 processor.  Even if you are only using it for firefox.   On-board graphics and an e5700 will probably shit all over itself just playing a 1080p video. 

 

If overheating is causing it to shut down just remove the side panel.  Or look on ebay or craigslist for a cheap used aftermarket CPU cooler.
