Nope now I need you to run a new PC Pit Stop log so I can check to make sure the issues are corrected.
Please Run the PCPitstop.com OverDrive Full Tests

Here's how:

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop.com
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
In the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"
You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)

Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)
You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.
It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.

The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.

Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.

Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.

After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.

While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. At WTT we prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.

Best Regards

OK one thing it mentions is the energy saving settings may be causing part of the issue also.

Make sure that the system is running on AC power and that all power management is turned off when the notebook is plugged into AC power.

I can select 3 options, power saver, balanced and high performance. It's when it's on balanced or power saver that the problems start.

There should be a option to turn off all power savings settings someplace.

Check this tutorial out for how to do it HERE.

I'll let you know if it doesn't crash, if it does I'll just leave it, takes to long to restart. It's off for repairs tomorrow (Well, today) as well but if this fixes it, it won't have to be. :3

Well I just can't see anything else that could cause all this besides the faulty recovery at this time.
All the hardware checks out good and with the issues that we fixt from PC Pit Stop it should be working now.
The hardware has all been cleared as a possible issue by either you or with the programs I have had you run.
If it turns out to be a faulty video card and since it is a laptop then that is a whole new issue since there is no way to replace a video chip on a laptop.

It's not the recovery, it was freezing before that. I have some more time to fix it now though due to bad weather it's not getting picked up today.
Even if it's caked in dust (Which it shouldn't be) surely it wouldn't shut of at 60C?

Heat is the single most reasons for a system failure.
Lack of air movement
Laptops are notorious for overheating due simply because of their compact size.
