Scan for spyware and viruses, there are some spyware progs that disable system restore.

Is your battery dodgy? Can you power up by battery afterwards, or do you need to recharge. When batteries are on the way out, they can show in Windows as having a lot of charge, then suddenly they have run out of steam.
