I was able to completely solve this computer on my Studio 1555 by doing the following:
1. Run the command "sudo amdcccle" (no quotes)
2. Under the PowerPlay page (left), uncheck the box "Enable PowerPlay"
3. Click "OK"
The problem was that the graphics card on my computer was overheating, not the CPU (I kept a CPU log to be sure of this). If you have an ATI card similar to mine but don't have the ATI settings manager (amdcccle), you can download it from the ATI site: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
