My Computer Freezes

  StarStalker 12:21 08 Jan 2009

Hi, my laptop keeps freezing and the only way to correct it is to keep my finger on the on/off switch so that it turns off. It doesnt seem to matter what I am doing on the laptop.
Please can someone help as this is driving me mad.
thank you

I havent gone into safe mode for a couple of years, how do I do it again? And do I just do what I would normally do on the pc then?

Keep tapping F8 as computer starts then choose from list

When I am in safemode, what do I do, I was in there just now, and it said various applications werent available, and I was to do what I needed in control panel then restart.
I also did a CC Clean, and my pc still froze.
