    Ok big problem, when I turned on my laptop, I always experience a "Not Responding" issue every 5mins of usage, I tried not running any application, cleaned up registry, uninstall unwanted programs etc. I can't even use event viewer. Help me fix this problem.

    Last 24hrs the laptop are working perfectly, it happened when I turned it off the laptop. I have not installed anything the past 24hrs in order for the system to not work correctly.

    BTW, if you're telling me to reformat, I can't because my CD-ROM is busted.

    EDIT: My Laptop is Dell Inspiron 1525.

    How long has the CD-ROM been broken?

    If both problems happened around the same time, disconnect the CD-ROM and see what happens.

    @ddp it only happened recently. I can't even go and create a restore point, it will freeze before it finishes. I haven't tried a system restore, because I did not expect this to happen.

    @Jeffrey_P
    CD-ROM has been broken for bout 2months now, I dont know how to disconnect a CD-ROM, I still can't do an inside job on laptops.

    What exactly does it say is not responding?

    If you have access to another PC with a DVD drive, you could create a Windows repair disc on a USB drive and boot from that.

    @Ripper actually I don't have. Only have this one with CD Drive. Others are just notebook laptops.

    @ddp I'm not sure if I can answer that, I don't even know how to turn off/on system restore.

    tymarski, notebooks & laptops are the same but netbooks aren't as they are smaller, slower & no optical drive.

    @ddp I didn't do anything special. When the freeze occurs, I just left it turned on, it took me at least 2hrs waiting for it. I always check it after 15minutes of waiting but nothing happened. It is quite a loooong freeze.
