Okay, when you turn the laptop on keep tapping F8, and then goto the option Safe mode. login there and wait to see if this happens there as well. If no, then its a software problem and you can revert to me and I will tell you more about it. If yes then turn your laptop upside down and take a vacuum cleaner and clean the bottom of the laptop.
If you are using the laptop on a bed or sofa, then use it on a table or get a stand for it, so that there is some ventilation space for the processor fan to take out the heat.
If this does not help, then revert.
Thanks. If this was helpful, then kindly rate me.

I use hp nx9010, i want to re-install windows xp but any time i try, the machine shutdown. sometimes is able to move up to copping files sometimes not then shutdown; i don't understand why is only windows...


If you can't keep your laptop stable and on for longer period, and you're experiencing random shutdowns I'd say you're facing a motherboard problem. This failure is actually well known and hapens a lot with Toshiba and HP. You'll most probably need to repair the motherboard that suffers from the Maxim 1987 or Maxim 1532 power chip failure.
The repair process is fairly straightforward, but it isn't for the faint hearted. It requires a resolder of the tiny Maxim 1987 chip that should get your motherboard up and running again in no time. The other alternative is to go for a new motherboard, or just get a new laptop alltogether.
If however your laptop experiences random freezeups, and you notice that the DVD is slow at reading data, and especially if you experienced some random mouse and keyboard freezeups, then you'll need to repair the motherboard from a FSB chip failur, which causes these random freezeups, which is a bit easier to do but still a challenge.
Hope this helps

Windows freezing in normal mode model toshiba m45 os win xp


First I would try blowing the fans out with canned air while the system is powered off.

Does Windows freeze during any actions in particular, or just random times? Have you tried restoring Windows from the Recovery CD? If not, I would definitely recommend it, but make sure you backup your data first.
