Problem with celeron M compaq notebook

My brother's laptop keeps restarting on its own...I think it may have not been shut down properly..a black page with white letters shows saying that the computer was probably not shut down as recommended...then it gives me choices to re start normally or restart with the last changes that were made to the do it on safe mode with networking...but i've chosen every single choice and all of them just lead to the same pretends that it's going to restart..shows the compaq screen, then shows the windows XP screen and then back to the black screen with the writing again...
please tell me if u can help me so that i can fix it on my own.
thank you

Hp 6910p laptop wont turn off. Fan running. what gives?

Something is keeping it from shutting down. This could be caused by a faulty application or driver. My suggestion is to hold the power button down until the unit completely shuts down. Take out the battery, unplug the ac-adapter, attempt to power it on and then put the battery back in. Attempt to restart the computer.

Good Luck!

Black screen

To turn it off hold the power button down until it overrides the system and shuts down, it may take a few seconds. If this doesn't work, then remove the battery, then unplug it. Restart the machine and if it's still not working properly get back to me and I'll see if I can point you in the right direction.
