I'm trying to restore it to factory settings with the disc. Followed the steps until it restarted and started the recovery process, but it never seems to reach 25% on the progress bar before it shuts down (or maybe goes into sleep mode, I can't tell). It doesn't seem to stop on the same spot or file every time. When I hit the power button it just boots up to the same progress screen and starts again from 0%.

Any idea whats causing this?

In case anyone else comes across this problem. I popped the battery out and put a laptop cooling fan under it and it fixed the issue. I guess it was overheating (which is weird).
