So my brother is reformatting his laptop for the third time, and this times its still reinstalling for the last 3 days. This is because it took forever to start up (about an hour) and subsequent tasks took 20 minutes per mouse click/ keystroke.
OS: Originally windows 7, none currently because it has not finished installing

did hard disk and memory tests which came out green
It overheated four or so times over the past year and a half. The last time it overheated while inside the case, and went into hibernation. We couldn't turn it on for the next 5 hours due to being too hot. This was two months ago.
