if you flip it over and remove the hard drive cover you will see the internal battery...that needs to be replaced if you are getting that warning.......if its getting hot it possibly needs to just be cleaned out (blown out), yet there is a overheating issue on various HP (Compaq) models where the video chip gets hot and the unit shuts down or has problems booting up
The clicking it the magneadle in the hard drive slapping against the spindle. Back up all your stuff to a flash drive and replace the defective hard drive. You cant buy a hard drive with the operating system on it. The chipset would be different from pc to pc.
17XL361 is your pc model number
Find someone with that copy of iwndows and copy the cd are use it to boot the system and fix the re-installation.... if bye chance the virus is still there, a fresh installation will get rid of it, jus be sure to get the drivers first though... (you can use drivermax for that!)
You most likely have a heat problem, as you have realized. To fix the problem, your heatsink/fan assembly needs cleaned, and then reinstalled with new heat sink compound. Some disassembly is required, so this isn't an easy job. If you go to a reputable shop, and tell them what you want them to do, rather than just tell them your laptop is shutting down, you should get it done for a fair price!
i have the exact same problem. try connecting the laptop to an external VGA screen. if it works, then the problem is most likely a loose cable (connector). It turns out that the connector (which connects the motherboard or gfx card to the LCD screen) on my laptop is torn and cut. see if u have the same problem. this link might help u check out ur problem:
Is this XP?
Do you have the XP cd or the recovery cd's. This needs to be fixed by performing a Windows repair. missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system"means that the OS,XP, is missing an essential file to run.
Or it could mean that your hard drive is failing. Is the hard drive noisey?

Many things can cause a computer to bog down over time, including how well it was maintained, how often disk clean ups and defrags were performed. All Windows updates installed. Anti Virus kept updated. Too many programs loading when the computer starts. Unnecessary services running. Spyware, etc.
If you want a well performing laptop it would be best to start with fresh install of Windows.
