Default vista still hanging after full "out of box state" recovery

a few days ago my laptop starts freezing at random and becoming more frequent, then it just failed to start (black screen with cursor after windows loading bar) same in safe mode.
ran memory test, startup problem test etc, found nothing. so i ran "Toshiba total PC recovery", which deleted all data and returned my pc to "out of box" state.

it took maybe 2 hours to set up again. now it starts up but hangs the same after just a few minutes. does this point to a hardware problem? what would your next move be?
i'd really appreciate any ideas you may have, thanks in advance!

Well the first thing I would look at is windows event viewer see whats that is saying and post it back here, and see if any programs are using any cpu usage pass 75% if you find that source thats where your problem should be at.

If it does the same in Safe mode, there's nothing much that can help it. I suspect a bad hard drive.
