Re: is there anyway u can walk me thru getting rid of...
If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive,
then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the
useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a
software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each
process started on the list reported by the software.
You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.
If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.
If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.
Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.
If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources
then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.
Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not
download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not
touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing

Try to perform full restart, press power button down until computer shuts down (+5 seconds). Then try to restart it. If repair function is offered, do not select that, select "start up windows normally".
does it shut down and then just start right back up? If it does then press and hold the power button and make sure it shuts down all the way. Then take the battery out and press and hold the power button after the battery is out for about 5 seconds. Then let it sit like 10 - 15 seconds. After that put your battery back in and turn it back on and see if this solved your problem. I think its in a loop to make it keep restarting. Let me know if this helped. Thanks, Herb Stacey
One problem with downgrading operating systems is the risk of components not having drivers for the new os. You might be able to check online to see if XP will run the drivers for your machine before trying it.
Try restarting your computer by pushing the windows button on the bottom of the keyboard on the left side, generally next to the ALT button. use your arrow keys to move over to the shut down button, select restart and restart your computer. Or you can shut down and then push the power button to start up your computer. This should help reset your laptop and unfreeze your mouse.
If this does not work, go to the control panel, again using the windows button and the arrow keys. select mouse, then go thru the tabs on the window to make sure that your mouse pad is selected to control your mouse.

This is the system error and it comes when the user doesnot shut the comp in proper way.//
it can also come if due to some reason the comp is shut automatically//
to get rid of it try last known good configuration.
shut down the comp// restart and immed start hitting f 8 cont to get the advance boot menu//
select LKGC and once that is done hopefully your computer will boot perfectly//
Sounds like spyware / malware i would use an online scanner like Eset or a program like Malwarebytes.
to stop the computer from restarting open the command prompt window
(start menu, click run, type cmd, click ok...) type "shutdown.exe /a"
without the "" and there is a space between exe and /a this will abort
Make sure it is positioned so that none of the vents are blocked on the unit. Check it with your hand to see if it's overheating, make sure dust is not blocking the vents. If the issue persists, could be software or a failed cooling system on the unit.

what has happened is your hard drive as failed and that is why it shut down and then gave the unmountable boot volume.
You could try repairing windows using your XP cd but it's a new hard drive i recon.
