Default Laptop power issues

I have a Toshiba laptop and I have the following issues:

when i restart it, it doesnt restart it just turns off. I cant turn it on cause it keeps shutting off. Im thinking its because its over heating. But I am afraid that it might be something more.

The internet is no longer working, I have other computers in the house and they work. The wireless stopped working, and now the LAN stopped working.

Windows wont install updates, it starts and then says its failed to update.

Its very slow

I booted it on safe mode with networking, and it still does not connect to the network.

So I'm thinking of doing a System Restore. I am also thinking if that doesnt work just wipe it and put windows 7 instead and see.

Please any suggestions! Thank you!

It sounds like a good reload would probably take care of most of the issues. At least then we'd know which problems were still left after the reload.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"
