    Please excuse me if I have posted this in the wrong area, but over the past 48 hours I have had great difficulty in using my laptop, a Dell Inspiron 1545. System type: 32-bit. Processor: not available. Memory (RAM): not available. I checked this yesterday and all information was provided, but not sure why it is not today.

    Everytime I switch it the laptop on, I will have about 1 minutes worth of use before it completely freezes. Ctrl + alt + del do not respond which means I just have to keep switching it on and off, on and off. Everything works fine on safe mode and after checking other sites for advice, I have not had any luck.

    I have tried 2 restores, which were successful, but not in fixing my problem.

    I am currently an English teacher in China so my laptop is crucial for everything I do. I appreciate any feedback and help.

    Many thanks,

    Nick

    Sometimes it's a corrupt driver issue when safe mode is the only option.
