HP DV5 laptop extremely hot in Vista not Windows 7

This just started a couple of days ago. I am dual booting with windows Vista and Windows 7. It gets extremely hot when running Vista to eventually have a black screen pop up saying there is no hard drive!
When I turn it off and let it cool it will boot back up.
When I boot into Windows 7 it runs normal yet after a while it starts to hang a bit but not overheat...

    This is not just hot...we've had this for almost a year and now it gets so hot you can't touch it. Runs slow, freezes and eventually the hard drive error pops up as stated originally. I'm taking it back in to Best Buy today and see what happens...

    the graphic card overheats and stops or freezes that is normal. what it needs is a clean inside, it needs to be opened and all the dust taken out, i think best buy would charge a lot for a simple job like this why not a small repair shop?

What is hard boot disk

A slang term. The Recovery Disk.

Has the basic Windows files, so you can repair any corrupted files for Windows.
Need one?

If this is in reference to an HP laptop, as the problem title suggests,
(HP Pavilion dv5-2129wm Notebook PC), then here is the method to obtain the Recovery Disk;

The Recovery Disk is free from HP Support.
The shipping, and handling is not.
In the USA the cost is $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, and $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

Go to the bottom of the laptop, and in the white Service Tag, write down the Serial Number. It is S/N.
You will need this to give to the nice HP representative.

Call 1-800-474-6836.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For other countries use HP Support Worldwide,

Put the Recovery Disk in your optical drive.

IF, you want to keep the personal information on your computer, when asked choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

IF, you want to wipe all of your information off, and return the computer back to Day 1 when it came from the factory,
choose Full Installation. (Destructive Installation)

Yes, You can dual boot Windows XP and Vista but you'll be having problem finding drivers if you install Windows XP on this computer since Windows XP supported drivers aren't available on Hp download page. HP has only Windows Vista and Windows 7 drivers for this System.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I started download for windows vista update, its gave me message its service pack didnt install so its reverting changes back to not turn off computer . that was 3 hours ago, computer keeps rebooting its...

Hold down the f8 key while booting up.This will put it in safe mode.

once there, try setting the restore point to last known good configuration.

This should bring you back to before the update.

Vista service pack 2 is very large and can take awhile to install.

Try updating the service pack again. After you get running.

Forgot password to hp laptop how do i reset it.

I don't know what OS your HP laptop is installed with.

If it is Windows 8, Windows Password Hint, PIN code, Microsoft account can be used to login HP laptop. After logon successfully, change, recover or reset Windows 8 password is available.

If it is Windows 7, Password hint or another administrator account may help you. But if you don't have all of these, try password reset disk. Create it before Windows 8 locked or with Windows 8 Password Recovery tool is OK.
Besides these, Chntpw USB disk also works for Windows 7/Vista etc.
