Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
This could be a couple of things...
overheating due to the heatsink and fan that takes the heat awasy from the cpu and gpu might be blocked up with fluff and dust.
could be software related, try booting up into your recovery partition (while computer starts up keep pressing F11) and repairing windows.
But it sounds like your laptop just needs a good service...your local engineer should be able to do this for around £30-£40 and is worth it when it comes to HPs.
Hope this helps

Sounds like overheating alright,
first step is to get a hose type vacuum cleaner and give the back where the fan vent is a good blast, these fans **** in air and likewise all the bits of dust and fluff floating around, laptops are particularly vulnerable because people take them into bedrooms etc.
if that fails, then compaqs tend to have about 6 screws on the bottom with pictures of a tiny keyboard, unscrew them, and the keyboard should lift. (carefuly prise...once lifted more than 1cm high be VERY careful as a thin delicate ribbon cable is all that keeps your keybaord working lift slowly and tilt backwards taking care not to snap it..else that will cost money to replace.
you should be able to see the fan and vents from there, clean them out with the vacuum and qtips.
