Booting and processing speed is so slow that it takes almost 5 mins to re-boot. simple tasks like word processing have the machine hanging for long. The laptop was ok until a month or two ago when it just went slow. The storage doesnt have much.

Here it is.
1. When asked to press F10, do it! It will take you into bios setup, then load "bios defaults", then "save and exit"
You should also try to update you bios and all your drivers. Come back here for instructions if #1 do not solve your problem.

i guess ur using a licensed and 'updated' antivirus..
howevr, hv a glance ovr the software strength..look for startup items (the programs loaded during startup)..download n install n run 'Statup Control Panel'..
and microsoft kb890830..remove the unnecessary boot item(s) or do post me a complete list of startup item that the Startup CPL is showing (in itz every tab), i'll guide u..
also u may use 'Advanced System Care Pro' to fix all at a time..
always better to get supervision frm ur system admin/vendor....

Sounds like the CPU is overheating. Try cleaning with canned air. On the bottem of the laptop you can see a fan with laptop off and battery removed use a whole can of air to clean it. wait 5 min. replace battery and try normal start up. listen for the fan to come on if it doesn't the fan is bad and needs to be replaced
Hope this helps

Turn on your laptop and keep pressing F8 to get to the boot menu. Choose safe mode and let it boot up into safe mode.
After you get into safe mode click on the start button in the bottom left hand corner (or the vista logo). on the run line type in "msconfig" (without the ") and press enter.
It will bring up the system configuration utility, from there click on the startup tab and then click on disable all. Do that and this will make sure none of those programs are loading up when you boot up into windows.
Let the laptop reboot and if you can get into windows without any of theh crazy slowdown then you know its something in that startup tab thta is slowing down the computer, from there you can add back what you need and see if any of what you add back is slowing down the computer.
If you do this and the computer is still very slow in booting up then the windows system files are corrupted and then you would need to go into the system restore and set your laptop back to the last date when it was running properly.
If that fails, then you'll need to save your data and wipe out the driver and reinstall the OS and device drivers.

It seems that the hard drive or the memory module is not seated properly and hence after pressing on the area below keyboard it gets released.
You can try following things.
Remove and reseat the Hard drive.
And remove and reseat the Memory.
Try to power on the laptop again.
If is getting hang again then you may need to do the HDD self test and memory test built into BIOS.
