The laptop is an advent with an i3 processor and windows 7. it had some viruses that I removed but the Internet was running slow, so I decided to do a full recovery with the recovery disc, that went fine, downloaded all updates and installed, that went straight forward. Laptop working fine until it decided to reboot itself in the middle of me using it, it now starts but won't get past the boot screen it just keeps looping and restarting but won't load windows not even safe mode or with the recovery disc.

Try hitting F8 when you see the BIOS screen (Should say Advent on yours, I believe) It's the screen that first comes on when you push the power button.

From there, go to "Repair your computer"

Hopefully, the automatic repair should find a few problems. If not, then reply here or PM me and I'll be happy to offer my services (Not in THAT way though!!)

Sticky Power Button.
The power button could be stuck down and your hardware trying to restart it.

Unlikely, in my experience from what you have told us the quickest thing for you to do is another fresh install, to diagnose your problem could take hours and still get no results.

When you boot in safe mode what happens? Does it freeze on a dll file? If so, which one?

Also if the fan is not running (Over Heating) would / could cause the 1st weird shut downs. And Second if there is heat damage explain why its not happy and recycling.

Only suggestions from what you have told us.

* Normally at power on the fans operate in full until told otherwise by the bios or software. Are the fans running ?

yes the fan is running but I did notice by the mouse pad it was red hot. Ive tried the fresh reinstall but it just loops back to start screen.

Ok here's the latest, start the laptop and it now goes past the boot screen and asks me to do a windows repair, did that and it said, cannot fix the problem and turns itself off. Restarts the bugger and it loads windows like nothing had changed. It still feels like the processor is getting too hot, the fan is definitely running. wierd or what.

Its not the battery that's getting hot is it?

Try again with out the battery plugged in.

Let it go cool and work out if its getting hot too quick.
It should run for a min before it gets too hot.

Make sure no air vents are blocked.
Does the fan sound like its running at full speed ?

Its leading towards a Thermal Event that is shutting down your laptop. If the reason is not obvious / slow fan or blocked vents then it would lean towards the thermal paste on the processor no longer doing the job.

And then leads to an internal problem which would mean opening it up.

If so give this chap a shout Click me

Overheating to many times can cause cpu failure so dont push it too much.
