This sounds like a severe driver issue to me. You could mess around with task manager or safe mode (or the registry if you really know what you're doing) to try and find the culprit - but if I were you I might just wipe everything clean and reinstall Windows. Just make sure you backup first!

1) check for dust bunnies (http://xoticpcforums.com/showthread.php?t=847)
2) be sure to use the official drivers posted at sagernotebook.com

Often when installing WindBlows Vista the OS will load it's own drivers. You should then update the drivers to the ones that came with your system. Your main problem, the hanging while having two windows open, sounds like a video driver. Also! You may have an indexing problem with the OS.

The problem of having a disk already 60% full sounds like the Vista indexing and restore point program is having problems. This will continuously update an index file and eventually overwhelm your disk. This last happens when you continuously add and remove programs, and / or when the system is having problems, like yours is. See tips, tricks and guides to disable this 'feature' until your laptop is stable.
