when I try to boot up my computer it freezes immediately, I cant even start it in safe mode. I run windows ME. On very odd occasions it will run for about 20mins before it freezes..not even the curser will move ,..any ideas to help please !!

Can you get into the BIOS? If so, try to load default settings.

Another possibility is overheating - be sure that all fans are working ok. (I'm not actually sure about this - strange that it will sometimes work.)

Sounds very much like overheating of the processor. Not only check the fan is working but clean out the dust too.
