Computer lagging... not sure why :(

Hey all. I'm having a pretty big problem with my HP Pavilion HDX laptop... at random times during use, it tends to lag. I'll be watching a video, and the frame rate slows down, but the audio doesn't. Then I'll try to open Firefox or another application, and it will take forever... but the thing is, it's like my video will skip frames, and I won't get the full animation of a program opening. This seems to happen when I lay it on my stomach on top of a couple of pillows to prop it up, so I'm thinking it might be an overheating problem? I'm running Vista 64 bit edition if that helps.

Thanks in advance for any help. :)

PS - It's been happening lately as the power cord accidentally disconnects from my laptop. Not sure if that would help or not, but I thought I'd add it anyways.
