Didn't use my laptop for about half an hour, went back to it and it had froze. Turned it off and on again and it beeped 4 times. It froze again and after turning it back off and on again this time it was stuck on a white screen. Probably completely done for, but I thought I'd come here and see if anyone had any ideas what might be up with it.

Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1520 and it's Windows 7 if that's of any help.

Four short beeps indicate a power related problem, however some people have reported this is a cache test failure (which could possibly be CPU related). I suggest you remove your RAm then reseat it (if thats possible) aloso remove any external devices. Reply back on your progress. :D

Orite well in that case I gues the best thing to do would be to take it to a computer shop, preferably not PC world cos they charge a bomb.

Definitely not advanced at all. Thank-you though, had issues with PC World before so I'll certainly avoid there. :')

It's definitely a hardware error, you'll need to have good technical knowledge with computers specifically laptops to resolve it, so I'd take it to a shop or get me, seeing as you know me IRL to fix it for free. :')
