+1 It's possible it could be overheating.

try seeing if you can get into safe mode. If you cannot try using your pro cd boot into repair console and run chkdsk -r let this run for a while you might have a bad file and yes the pro cd will work I have done this may times.

The Pro CD will run chkdsk but it will not repair a Home install. It is possible that it is a overheat issue but this sounds like a OEM build rather than a home built. ORM machines, unless they have some fan failure, usually dont overheat easily. At least not in my experience with workign fans and that. If there is a fan failure then yes.

But i think this is due to bad downloads.

The Pro CD can not repair a Home install. It can do some simple tasks like chkdsk and fixboot and stuff like that. But as for a actual repair install it can not. This is due to the fact that a repair install removes the Windows files and put them back with the repair function. If you were able to do this with a Pro CD it was on a Pro isntall not a Home install. Pro and Home are different and not interchangeable that way.
