Does the laptop bootup again after it cools?
If the laptop starts up again and crashes again when it is hot, the the problem most likely is the fans is faulty and stopped spinning and or the heatsink and fan is clogged with dust.
Check the fan, replace it if the fan does not spin freely, vacuum and remove the dust from the fan and heatsink assembly.

In all your air vents on your laptop, take a can of air and blow into all of them, this will ensure there is no dust or dirt buildup that is blocking the vents which could cause overheating.

Next off if your laptop is still overhearting then see if the fan runs at all, keep in mind it won't run all of the time but as long as it turns on from time to time then you know for sure that your cpu fan is operable.

If the fan doesn't turn on ever then the fan is probably bad or the power connector needs to be reconnected to the mothterboard.

If the fan is running like it should and its still way overheating then the motherboard is bad cause that means the IC's on the motherboard are not regulating the voltage properly.

Pc keeps crashing during online gaming


This sounds like either a case of graphical artifacting, or your pc is simply crashing.


Graphical artifacts are things not normally seen on your monitor created by overuse of the graphics card, such things as white pigments and the odd pixel patterns you saw are some signs of this. I've experienced this problem, and have had the speakers make the noise you heard noise upon restarting the pc. To see if this is the cause I would try running an extremely graphically intensive game or program such as a 3D benchmark to test the limits of the graphics card, and if you see the odd pixelation during the testing, then it is most likely that the card is the problem, and you should call its manufacturer for a replacement.


If your pc is simply crashing then either your power supply is not putting out enough power for you graphics card, or the graphics card is not hooked up to the motherboard properly. The first to do to check if this is the case is to run your pc until it crashes and see how hot your pc has gotten, if it is very hot, then your power supply could be overloaded, or you may not have enough airflow in the case. I would suggest opening your pc and looking for anything out of place, and even perhaps getting professional help from a technology store.

You will have to try booting from your Operating System CD and "Repair Windows." Once you get the computer up and running, you should boot into Safe Mode and install "SUPER AntiSpyware," "AVAST Home Free" and Spyware Blaster (links below). These will have to be downloaded from another computer because you will not have access to internet while in Safe Mode. After installing all three, reboot the computer, booting into Safe Mode once again, and run the three programs.

Crashes.


Since it's not hot the main suspect is the hard drive. I'd recommend swapping the drive out and reinstalling the operating system.

My TX crashes every time I try to hot sync


You could delete that app if you want, however I would go into hotsync config and sync only one section at a time, such as Notes, but not contacts or calendar (or anything else). If it works then add a section, such as contacts. Keep adding sections until it malfunctions. Pimlico software makes a product dbfixit ($) that can fix database (blob errors). You can download and install it, and it will report on (but not fix) any errors it finds.

Super hot lug nuts


Sounds like the wheel bearing is bad - when it is, the friction inside the hub goes up and the hub gets heated, sometimes to scalding temperatures. You should immediately look into getting this handled - a fully failed wheel bearing may cause the wheel to lock up at speed, potentially causing a crash.
