As it is freezing so soon after switch on - it isn't even trying to boot, a disc is unlikely to be much help because there is a chance your hard drive died.

I would remove the drive and use one of the inexpensive usb/hard drive adaptors with another computer to check the drive before doing anything else.
If the drive is ok either the Windows is seriously corrupted or the laptop has a hardware problem.

I never bother trying to repair Windows but back up what I want to save and format the drive and reload Windows and the other software. It is a lengthy job but it is the best way to clean the drive...

On Windows or OSX (Mac), if you double-click on the font file it should launch a font-viewer program which will have an "Install Font" button.

In Windows Media Player, click Library and then, in the List pane, click <List Name> List, and then click Burn List, as shown in the following screen shot.
  1. If you need to clear the list before beginning, click Burn List, and then click Clear List.
  2. Drag a folder from the Contents pane or songs from the Details pane to the List pane to create a list of songs to burn.
  3. In the burn list, drag songs up or down to arrange them in the order you want them to appear on the CD.
  4. Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW disc in the CD drive.
  5. In the List pane, verify that the songs you have selected to burn will all fit on the disc. If necessary, remove songs from the list by right-clicking a song and then clicking Remove from List, as shown in the following screen shot.

It is possible that a song will not fit even if the total time exactly matches the CD length, because the Player inserts two seconds between songs when burning. Click the Start Burn arrow and verify that Audio CD is selected, as shown in the following screen shot.
lick Start Burn.As the CD is burned, you can check its progress in the burn list. Burning a CD will take some time.Notes It is recommended that you do not try to perform any other actions while burning a CD. For example, playback may be affected if you try to play a music CD while burning a CD.

You cannot burn additional files to a CD after burning is completed. If you are using a CD-RW, you can erase the entire CD before using the Player to burn files to the CD again.

The problem is due to missing codec.Anyway,you can download VLC Player, below is the download link

http://www.videolan.org/mirror-geo.php?file=vlc/1.0.3/win32/vlc-1.0.3-win32.exe

Or else you can install "Windows essentials codec" which will allow you to play any file in Windows Media Player  and others too.Below is the download link

Now enjoy your Movies.

Control Panel -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager

Click [+] next to DVD/CD-ROM drives, double-click the drive in question.
In Properties tab, make sure the box is ticked next to
Enable Digital CD-Audio for this Device

Hopefully you'll have sound after this.

Here is a simple way to find out if it is the program that you are using or actually your computer. What I am going to do is list a link at the bottom for you to install and try and watch your movies on. This is called VLC it is a movie player with a bunch of different codec's. You can think of a codec as a way to translate the designed language of the movie into audio and video. Different movies are written in different ways and not all programs have all of the correct codecs. But anyway VLC is jammed packed full of codecs. I use it personally, never had a issue it works amazing. This is my quickest and easiest solution.

Windows 2000 or Later

If you are trying to use Windows Media Player it's no wonder you can't watch them or you are having codec problems. Open up internet explorer and go to google. In the google search box type in "Download VLC Player". Look at the search results and look for www.videolan.org/vlc to download the player. VLC is free open source and it is a much better player with all the drivers and codec. It runs things that windows media player has a problem playing. Once you download and install it, go to the movie file you downloaded and Right Click on it and select the Open With option. If you don't see VLC listed in the Open With options, choose the option at the bottom that says Choose Program. Look for VLC in the program list. Choose VLC to play the movie and see what happens.

You cannot copy Audio from Youtube. But there is an alternative. First you need to install Youtube Downloader in order to download the videos or the audios from Youtube.

Next you will also need a FLV to MP3 converter in order to get the Audio which will be compatible for CD or iPod as files downloaded from Youtube will come in .flv extension which doesn't work on normal CD player or iPod.
