If a bill arrives on the desk of the president of the US and it originated in the Senate A pocket veto will be possible for him only if what?

A pocket veto will be possible for the president only if Congress adjourns before the president has ten days to sign or veto the bill. If Congress adjourns during this period, the bill does not become law and is effectively vetoed.

What is an important check on the power of the president?

Arguably, the ultimate check on the power of the president is impeachment - if the president is thought to have committed a crime in the course of his duties, the House of Representatives can vote to impeach him, and then the Senate conducts the trial. A conviction requires a 2/3 majority vote of the Senate, and the highest punishment it can impose is removal from office. One could also argue that the voters are the ultimate check on the president's power - if they don't like his policies, they can vote him out in the next election. Furthermore, the Constitution (through the 22nd Amendment), limits the President to two terms in office, which prevents the President from becoming too powerful.

Can the president veto a bill passed by the senate with 69 votes?

I assume the House of Representatives has approved the bill then sent it to the Senate for its vote. If the Senate then passes the bill by 69 votes or even 100 votes, the President can veto it. The Constitution does not prohibit a veto if a certain percentage of Congressmen approve it on the first try. After the bill is vetoed it goes back to the House where it originated and if that House votes by 2/3 majority to pass it, it goes to the other House for its approval. If 2/3 of that House also approves it, the bill becomes law without the President's approval. At that point in the process the President does not even have the right to veto the bill.

No. Once a bill becomes law, the President can not veto it or nullify it. (He can refuse to enforce a law he does not like but is subject to impeachment for doing so. However if the law is controversial and his party has enough members in the Senate to make conviction impossible, he can get away with it. )
