Why is my Playstation 3 Super Slim freezing?

My PlayStation 3 Super Slim freezes on the XMB. Is there a way to fix this that does not involve replacing any parts? I am not very comfortable with taking the device apart and would not even know where to start. Any help or suggesting for fixing it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

This could be because the disc is dirty, which means you simply need to clean your disc. If that isn't the issue, it could also be because of damaged file, which would require you to restore the file system (restore file system instructions can be found in the troubleshooting page). If that doesn't work either, it's likely that there's an issue with the laser lens, which would require a lens replacement.
