Laptop Freezing up

My laptop has been freezing up on me lately. If I'm in the middle of doing something, it just won't work anymore. I can't move the mouse; try to presst Crtl+Alt+Del, but still no response. I have to turn off by holding down the power button. Then when I try to power it back up, it freezes again, screen stays black; I have to try at least 10 times before I get the welcome screen. What can be wrong with it? I've had it for about 3 years.

    Ok, but I guess I failed to mention that I did a system restore 2 days ago. Now, why do you think it freezes?

To further investigate the issue you may do the following.

1.go to control panel --> administrative tools then select event viewer. check on system logs. you might be able to find a clue on why the notebook keeps on freezing after 15 to 20 minutes.

2.please check your virus definitions if its fully updated. If not please update it then do a full scan afterwards.

3. do a windows update on your system if it's not fully updated yet.

4. You may also check or try to remember what has been installed lately. It might be that the application installed have caused vista to freeze.
