    I have a gateway T2868 I think on Windows Vista. The problem still persisted after I did system restore? (the one where all your data is wiped and goes back to factory settings).

    Also the laptop is very slow in starting up, but it does get to the Desktop window. My uncle did mention that the fan doesn't move after startup. Could that have burned the CPU and caused the slowness and the freezing? For some reason I thought it was a hard drive problem, and bought a new one. My uncle doesn't want to go through all the effort of installing it since he thinks it's damage caused by the fan breaking down.

    Any thoughts on what the problem could be?

    The fan has to be fixed. The machine has to be able to cool itself.
