Please advise....laptop has frozen whilst watching on line video...I cannot move cursor and control alt del not helping either what should I do

Unfortunately it sounds like the machine has totally frozen up considering it is not responding to Ctrl+Alt+Del.

You will have to hard power of the laptop by keep holding down your computer’s power button (usually about 5-10 seconds), it will eventually turn off. Please allow a minute before turning back on and if you come across a prompt to repair or start windows normally please MAKE sure you choose "Start Windows Normally"
