First make sure your fan is operating on your processor it takes about 3 mins for it to over heat and stop and shut itself down for safety to prevent burning up the processor.if its not this read on. Also when you boot into safe mode then do a system restore to a date before the problem started. But first in safe mode run your antivirus scan to find something that is missed while being hid behind the operating system while functioning.

Make sure the cooling fan for the laptop is not obstructed in any way or is not dirty. It's pretty common for a laptop to get plugged with dirt from normal use. Get a can of air and blow the machine out to remove dirt, lint or debris.
You could also have a defective battery, but try cleaning the machine first.
Ok at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems.
Will it start in SAFE mode? Reboot and press F8 before Windows loads. This will give a small menu about different SAFE modes and Normal mode. Select SAFE mode and allow system to start. If the system starts fine then you have corrupted drivers and/or a virus which is corrupting your drivers. Download AVGFREE.exe, MALWAREBYTES.exe and SUPERANTISPYWARE.exe and run these. Now goto START, Run and type SFC/scannow and have your original disks handy because any corrupted drivers will have to be replaced. Now try to reboot into NORMAL mode. If OK you're done. If not OK or even in SAFE mode all you see is the cursor then the laptop needs to go to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromendllc.com
that means your base system is working just fine but your other software is not.try to remember what type of software did u install b4 or on the first day u know your laptop frozen.....fyi, some system cannot work on vista..
Okay, easiest first. In Safe Mode, your sound won't work. Safe Mode means only enough drivers to make your PC more than a doorstop get loaded, so that's okay.
Second, if it boots to Safe Mode without difficulty, try running System Restore in System Tools. Go back to some date before when your issue started. That should get you going. Don't worry, your data files will not be affected in System Restore. I hope this helps.
Startup in Safe Mode (hehe sorry)
Goto START- RUN
Type msconfig press enter
Select the third tab at the top (Startup)
Click the word Manufacturer, it will sort out the list by who wrote the software.
Remove the ticks from all boxes that are NOT Microsoft as the manufacturer. This includes adobe, and unknown and anything else.
Click APPLY then OK
You will get a box asking you to restart, select yes.
This time try to boot normally.
If you get through, then the box will pop back up, repeat the procedure above, but now put the ticks back into boxes you believe you can trust such as Adobe. Do one or two at a time so you can narrow down what may have been causing the problem.
hi, have you tried switching the screen mode, i think its FN button and F4, failing this you may have a faulty LCD controller chip, messy to fix unless you bring it some one who is repetable at fixing laptops...
