Just to say
Laptops should be elevated slightly at the fan area underneath,
so hot air can be exhausted more easily by the fan.
Computer stores sell accessories that do just that.

Watch for help from others.

Good advice from Chuck 2. Laptops do tend to have a heat problem.

Hi usually when it asks you to start again it is related to the hard drive . It can also be ram related. Try to test each ram stick individually by inserting first one in slot A , see if you have the same problem , if problem presists try it in slot B , problem solved? If yes slot a may be faulty , if not try the next stick of ram in the same manner. If the ram is not the issue try removing the hard drive and see if you can get into the bios , if you can and it stays on you will know it is not heat related. If it restarts as well then check cpu if possible. Last but not least , it might be the motherboard. Hope this
