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

Overheating?

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.
