It turns off within 5 minutes of it turning on

My computer will not stay on. Everytime i turn it on, it will start up and I can't click on anything and no programs will load. Then it just gets a black screen and turns off. It also gets really hot. I don't think the fan is working. could it be overheating?

Have you checked the battery. I had the same problem, found out that battery wasn't put well. How about you pull out the battery and put it back gain.

Yes, this could be caused by overheating. If this is due to overheating, it's most likely that the processor has burnt up. You will need to take it in for a professional hands-on diagnostic in order to find the exact cause of the problem. Overheating can cause several different issues within a machine.

How can i have hp psc 1510 driver and valid Win32


Here's the fix:
* First uninstall your current HP installation.*
Step one: Uninstall the printer driver and software
1.
Disconnect the universal serial bus (USB) cable from the computer.
2.
Insert the printer software CD into the computer.
3.
A prompt to uninstall the software displays. Follow the on-screen instructions to uninstall the software.
4.
Restart the computer.
Step two: Turn off the Terminate and Stay Resident (TSR) programs and other background programs
When the computer is turned on, a software group called the Terminate and Stay Resident (TSR) programs automatically loads. These programs activate some of the computer utilities such as the anti-virus software but are not required for the computer to function. Occasionally, TSRs prevent the printer software from loading so that it does not install properly.
In Microsoft Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows XP, use the MSCONFIG utility to prevent TSR programs and services from starting up.
1. Click Start and then click Run. The Run window opens.
2. In the Open: box, type msconfig, and then click OK. The MSCONFIG utility window opens.
3. Click the General tab.
4. Select Selective Startup.
5. If there is a check mark next to Load Startup items, click the check mark to remove it.
6. For Windows XP systems only - Click the Services tab and place a check mark in the Hide All Microsoft Services box. Select Disable All.
7. Click Apply and then click Close.
8. Click Restart to restart the computer.
Unplug your USB printer cable and reinstall. That's it!

Everytime I turn my computer on it will freeze


You have a corrupted registry, try rebooting and depressing the F8 key to access safe mode..you will see a black and white screen with boot choices.

Choose "best last boot config" reboot and hope for the best.

If still no go reload windows with the disk and choose option "Reload windows WITHOUT FORMAT". It will replace windows and retain all you saved files. HOWEVER, you will need to reload all other programs, eg Office suite, games etc
