Windows 7: Random Freezes make everything not respond

Random Freezes make everything not respond

When you using the laptop, i will get various freezes in which everything will not respond and i have to turn the laptop of and back off again for it to work.

This can happen at different times, some times it within a minute of the laptop being switched on, or within half an hour of it being on.

Im trying to write this quick before it crashes again.

OS: Windows Home Preium 32 bit. Laptop is a Toshiba Satellite (don't know model number).
