there was no need to update Bios now in case your laptop is turning on Please try to start in the Safe mode and there you shut down your laptop properly and try Restarting in normal mode. Secondly, If you are well versed with the technology then please try to reinstall the Windows Xp
and BIOS update is something you should be very careful of. do not try unless it is MOST required
have issues with Windows XPs hibernation mode. To get the computer back
up again you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off
completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this
happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make
sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont
Once you get the computer back running again you may
want to disable hibernation if it seems like its going to keep
happening. Go to Start, Settings Control Panel or Start, Control Panel
and go to the Power Options icon. Change the hibernation section to
never. You may want to try standby as an alternative. Standby saves all
your running applications and documents into RAM while hibernate saves
them to the hard drive. Hibernate uses less power from your battery,
but it will take you considerably longer to get the computer back up.
If you always plug the computer in then you may want to disable standby
and hibernate since you really dint need them while plugged in.

Could be this is a driver error on boot up, when it starts to boot up keep pressing F8, this will bring up the safe mode menu, look for the line and highlight 'Last Known Good Configuration' and press Enter.
If this works all is well, but if not press F8 again o boot up but this time highlight the line 'Start Windows in Safe Mode'.
If the laptop then boots up in safe mode without shutting down, run your anti virus and spyware programmes.
If non found and the laptop still has'nt crashed, then it's a driver problem (as not all the drivers load up in safe mode) and you will need to try a system restore to before the problem started.
