Help please my laptop crashes everytime I do anything. I have tried to system restore but it crashes then. I don't have the recovery disks that came with the laptop either.
Any help or diagnosis would be greatly appreciated.

Does it show any error messages, or does it just shut down?

It might help also if we know the OS and a bit more about the laptop.

One possible reason is overheat-

make sure all grills and airway are clear of dust and fluff try a vacuum cleaner up against the grills to suck out all the dirt and fluff.

vista operating system, fujitsu siemens amilo laptop li2727. Shows no error messages just freezes. Example is when i go to do a system restore it will allow me to get upto system restore then the computer won't do anything cursor can still move but no response when clicking or using any buttons and then sometimes not always cursor freezes too!
