System Hangs Forever

My system will just suddenly hang forever
and will never come out of hanging until i force the system down by holding
the power button down for a few mins.

i've attached a copy of the SF diagnostic tool's report.
Thanks in advance

Do you mean there are no BSOD's? There seem to be no new dump files in the SF diag report.

Only use the laptop on a hard surface - with nothing blocking any of the vents.
Use a laptop cooling pad if possible
Blow out all vents with canned air (DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner or an air compressor, they can damage the components).
Ensure that the fan comes on and is blowing air out of the vent (may not happen at startup, but should happen after using it for a while).
For monitoring heat of the system, use Speccy or HWMonitor:
  • Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue, and then replace the file.
To do this, follow these steps:
