This sound very much to me like overheating check all the vents on the laptop make sure they are free and clear. If you have used the laptop on a bed or sofa for a period of time the vents can become clogged with a buildup of dust, if this is the case then you will need to open up the laptop and clean the fan and heatsink. you could also try vacuming the vents.

This usually means 1 of a few things.. 1. Your Harddrive is bad 2. You got a boot sector virus, and your boot ini file is so badly infected, your computer can't find the boot file and you need to format your c:\ or d:\ drive....if you can get to your CMD window (command) but the way you bring it up is from CMD in start/run/CMD but since you can't even boot to your desktop...then you can choose a few options..
IF you have your your Windows Xp, or Windows Vista or Window 7 (depending on how you purchased your system, I'm thinking XP...since with Vista and Windows 7 you can reload to factory settings)
If you do have the disk....then you WILL have to reload your Operating System ....IF your harddrive isn't bad (have bad sectors or clusters) or is just "old" or was bumped severely and there's a dent on your harddrive preventing your boot ini file from being found...
There are so many things that could be wrong with it....Send me more infomation.... It's definitely NOT your motherboard...it's a harddrive issue...whether from a virus (which there are many out there that could infect or even rename your boot file....or your harddrive is BAD.. Either way...let me know and I can help you further!!!
The operating system software is stored on the hard disk. The computer cannot detect the hard drive and therefore cannot load the operating system. It could be that it only needs reseating to get it operating again, if that does not work it could be a faulty disk drive or a faulty disk controller.
To test if the hard drive is OK, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug this adapter and drive into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this as an external hard drive and you can view the contents of this drive, then it is OK. If you cannot see this drive then it is faulty.
You need to replace the hard drive in your computer and install Windows again to get an operating computer again.
Oh yea I'm sure it had a lot to do with it..when you format a drive you lose everything including drivers. Check the device manager, look for Network Adapter, the click on the "+" to open If you see your wireless deivce then right-click on it and then choose to reinstall drivers..good luck, let me know how it goes and if you have any questions.,
