Check to make sure you have the current bios for that system and run diagnostics on the hard drive. If you have access to another hard drive you can swap the drive to see if it still hangs. It could also be the motherboard and/or the processor are the culprit which would be harder to diagnose.

The most common reason is memory. Power off your system. Test one memory module at a time to determine the bad module.

If not memory, then probably Malware or Spyware. Download, install, and run MalwareBytes and Spybot.

Hope this helps.

Freezing up inside my a/c unit

Often that is a sign it is low on refrigerant. It can also be due to low air flow due to either a dirty filter or dirt obstructing the fins (coils) behind the filter.

My inspiron 1525 will shut down every 15mins or so. i don't what is wrong with it.

Most likely, if you have not set the power settings in the control panel to do this, you have a heat problem.
This can be tested by turning on the computer and using it until it freezes or turns off. Wait a few minutes and if it turns on again, it is most likely heat. Check to see if the cooling fan is running. Also, with canned air, blow out the dirt that accumulates in the case.

I would check the Ram and CPU. If you can swap the ram you have with good ram, or if you have more than one stick of ram in there take one out at a time to see if thats the problem. Next go into bios and check the CPU temperature after you have been running your computer for a while. The problem with diagnosing this problem is how much time in between freezes. 18 times in 6 months makes it hard to diagnose, because you won't know if you fixed the problem unless it freezes again after you changed something, and even if it does freeze again it could be because of an entirely different problem.
