I turned it off for a half hour and it did something really weird. When I turned it on, it went to the Microsoft screen with the blue thing going back and forth (like it normally does), but after that, it went completely to a BLACK screen, with just the cursor in the middle of the monitor. It is not blinking, just the pointer stationary.
It didn't do anything for a while, so I held the power button to turn it off. I restarted it, same thing. I waited about 90 minutes, and the third try got me to a screen which gave me a few choices, so I chose "start windows normally".
It tried to boot up, but went to a stop error screen: KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
And on the bottom of this screen, it is doing a dump of physical memory. It is also counting upwards, one number at a time. I am using another laptop to write this. I will await your reply.

After it counted to a 100 (I think), it rebooted on it's own. It went to the Microsoft screen, then to another stop error screen, except it says IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. It is also dumping again to disk.
