A Does it turn off automatically after few minutes Or
B It fails to shut down when you choose to do so ??
If the system turn off automatically, try to clean the cooling vents and make sure that the system is not overheating
If the system fails to shutdown, test the system in safe mode. Restart and tap F8 repeatedly, select safe mode and press Enter. Once it start in safe mode, try to shutdown. If it able to shut down properly then the problem can be with your antivirus software
Start the laptop going as far as it can and press the F8 button as it is starting. This will give you a few startup options. Select Safe Mode. If it's a problem with drivers it might start in safe mode. If it does press the Start Button, Accessories, System Tools and System Restore. You will be given a date to which the system will restore to but you have the option to pick another date. Select a date in bold when the laptop was working and run the program. If this does not solve the problem you could use a windows installation cd. You didn't say which version of windows you use but you may have an installation disc or be able to get a loan of one. Failing that there's a program called Spinrite available from http://www.grc.com which can repair most windows computers of any version, has got great reviews and allows you to create a boot disc to repair problem discs. I hope some of these help.
There is a problem with the DVD ROM. Maybe it is not well fixed and causing conflict which result in making the computer slow. And maybe it is not contacting the system well again, that's why it worked and later not worked when it loose contact.
I would advice that you shut down your system, loose the DVD ROM and put the system back on without the DVD ROM after a little while when the windows must have settled, shut down the system again and fixed back the DVD ROM. Make sure it is well connected and put the system back on again. Test the DVD ROM and see if it would give the same problem. If it does, then may be you will have to replace the DVD ROM.
One a DVD ROM is bad, another one needs to be purchased, because it is usually difficult to repair DVD ROM expect in minor case.
try starting the computer in safe mode. As the computer boots keep pressing F8 until you hear a beep. The computer will or should start in safe mode, once it has everything will look big, don't worry about that for now, click on start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date for when you know the computer was working without any problems. Once the computer has restored it will shut down and reboot. When/if asked what mode you want to boot/start your computer choose start windows normally. I hope this helps.
Try starting in safe mode (press f8 on start up) once in safe mode use system restore to restore your operating system to a earlier point.
