I've tried to start Speccy again and it just never loaded. It said Analyzing for all the options, and even restarting the computer and trying again, it wouldn't budge. The computer hasn't BSOD'd yet, and it seems to be stable. I've tried to scan the computer with Microsoft Security Essentials but it just stays at the scanning screen with no time elapsed, and nothing scanned.

I restarted a few times until it loaded correctly, not sure what to make of that. The CPU / Motherboard temp is at 80 degrees Celsius while running Microsoft Security Essentials at 35% CPU power. I'm afraid if I use a stress tester I run the risk of melting the laptop plastic. (haha)

Well I haven't encountered a BSOD in a while, it's starting up and shutting down correctly, and only overheating. I'll run a hard drive test, but I've pretty much exhausted all the options.

I guess you're using a cooling pad now?

Yes, it's been on a cooling pad. It's still running hot though.

It's running hot, and it's not letting me shut it down. This is the second time it's been stuck on "Logging off" for 10 minutes. There's no indication that it's installing updates but the loading disk symbol is flashing.

I just finished step 5 from How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista or Windows 7 but it seems that it's still stuck at 'Logging off..."

Edit: strangely it logged me off instead of shutting down. The shut down button from the log on screen shows that it had updates (8), so I'm going to install them and see if I can restart the clean boot process.
