My laptop is Refusing to start....it comes on then goes straight off....then after about
20 attempt it will start, is painfully slow, will not defrag or disk clean....I
think it may be on its very last legs. Any ideas?

insert disk
restart comp
as restarting pres f12 key
follow on screen instructions from there

Bit difficult if you cant start it,sounds like hardware problem to me,not software.

What happens when you plug it into the mains?

Are you able to tell if the drive is full of data?

It will not defrag if there is no space on the drive.

Try to uninstall any programs you do not need or use to begin to free up some space.
