Windows 7: On overheat/sleep/reboot BSOD flash and auto-reboot

On overheat/sleep/reboot BSOD flash and auto-reboot

I purchased my HP Compaq 8710p laptop from Purdue University in May of 2008. A little after that it was stolen from me. Thankfully I had it LoJack secured, and they were able to recover it in London. When I got my computer back, however, the Windows XP that it had come pre-installed with was replaced with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I never had an issue with it for two years until now.

It seems like my computer overheats more often then it should, especially if it is on my lap or the fan is covered at all. This may be normal but even more annoying than that is whenever it shuts down from an overheat or it goes in to sleep mode or I ever have to manually shut it down, it gets to the Windows loading screen where the colors come in from the sides, then freezes, flashes the BSOD and then reboots. When I try to run the Repair, it take about half an hour then says Repair couldn't fix the computer.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you so much, it seems to have worked. Do you have any idea if this will help with the overheating issues?

Download Speedfan and tell us the temperatures of the hardware... SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

Are you blocking the laptop vent? It should be free; otherwise, it will overheat. Is there any dusts clogging up the laptop vent?

Here are the temps. If the computer is on my lap, the vent underneath may be blocked but the vent on the side is open at all times. There is no visible dust around the fans. Also these temps are when the computer has been running standard web browsers on a desk for about 3 hours.
