well i think in my case it's a hardware failure ... somehow
u see, after i got angry coz it wasn't working ( ), i kind tapped the laptop (small hit) which caused the laptop to start reading from the HDD and it loaded to Windows... and now it's working fine i hope it won't evolve into something serious
thanks for ur help

If you want to confirm that it is hardware failure, let me know. I know of a program that can tell you the data collected by the SMART of the hard drive. This data can be used to tell if the hard drive will fail in the near future. It will also give you voltage readings, so you can see if you're getting the correct voltages.

After you run it, the first screen should give you fan speeds and voltages. Write down the fan speed of each fan as well as the voltage for each. When you post your reply to me, put the required voltage (the left number) next to the actual voltage (the right number) just as you see it.
Next click on the S.M.A.R.T tab and, in your reply to me, include any items that have something next to them other than a Green check or a blank.

there are two gauge bars below. one is fitness the other is performance ... they're both full

This is most likely the problem. Even though your Linux OS works fine, it may need less of your computer's components to operate, and it may use less resources than Windows while running. Regardless, your heat needs to be addressed.
Let's check your hard drive for errors, just to be certain. Get it into Windows (even if you have to "tap" it again ) and run scandisk. Check both of the following options before scanning:
Automatically fix file system errors
Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
It will ask you to schedule scandisk to run the next time you start windows. Tell it yes and then restart your computer. The scan can take anywhere from 1-3 hours, depending on the size of your hard drive, so do it at a convinient time for you. Even if scandisk works, you still need to get the temperature down. Keep me informed of your progress.
