~Hello,
Please can anyone help?
My 4 yr old laptop suddenly freezes every 30 minutes or so (roughly, when im listening to audio when this happens it sounds like a CD sticking.
If i leave it it goes back to normal.
Please can anyone advise me what to do to solve this?

Sounds a bit like possible overheating. Is the laptop on a solid surface, not your lap/carpet/bed etc?

May need a good clean out, dust and fluff gathers quickly, especially around outer grills and inner fans.
