When In BIOS and when Win Logon

Hewlett-packard / V5000z
Computer Shuts Down January 25, 2009 at 22:30:33
Specs: Windows XP SP2, Mobil Radeon/1gb
I can get the computer into Bios, when there it runs for anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes. After this time it abruptly shuts down. If I do not attempt to enter Bios, exactly after the windows loading screen appears, and the comp is about to display the windows interface, it abruptly shuts down. I was having a problem with a virtumonde virus before the computer started this shut down problem. Also, I have had an issue with the computer overheating, which I partialy permanently fixed by pointing a strong fan towards the top of the laptop. I am thinking the problem is with the power supply. I don't believe it could be an overheating problem after only a couple of minutes of running. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

I think you need to revamp your beliefs. When you get into the BIOS, is there a hardware monitoring menu, possibly called PC Health? Check your CPU temp.

I assume this is about a laptop? Have you tried blasting the intake & exhaust vents with compressed air?
