  1. sounds like it could be overheating.
    Whens the last time you cleaned out the vents?
    get a can of compressed air, blow out the vents on the bottom and back.
    Also try propping it up on an angle too. helps air flow
  2. Also, is it giving any error messages, blue screens, etc? The more you tell us, the easier it will be to help you.

    Hm. Could be the hard drive is failing. Good first step would be back up your data, then download and burn a copy of the ultimate boot cd. Boot from that, run memtest 86 for a couple hours to be sure that the memory is not an issue. If that that does not give any errors, maybe do a clean install of windows. Then see if it acts better. If not, I would replace the hard drive. If you are unsure how to change it, give us the make and model, we may be able to find a guide, but normally they are easy to change.
