Hard to say. I would try a clean install in the event the operating system is corrupted.

I did that and i put my non working battery in and now it just freezes when i watch videos, which sadly is the reason i bought it off my friend. I think now the video card is just getting extremely hot when i watch videos even with my cooling pad

Jesus Christ! You have an overheating problem. In my experiences, 90% of the time my processor would freeze when it gets too hot. Then as it cools down it returns to work. The IBM Thinkpad T20 that I have does not have that problem because I applied a new thermal compound as well as have 3 fans running underneath to carry the heat out. I also took the CD drive out and the cover to the PCMCIA card slots so it has more ventilation. Good luck.
