Cell constantly stuck trying to execute

Hi all, I have no idea if this is the right place to ask this but it’s absolutely driving me nuts and I can’t find a solution anywhere, though I may be completely missing something.

Ever since yesterday after making a new notebook, none of the cells in any notebook, including the sample notebooks will ever actually execute, they’ll just be permanently stuck with [*]

I’ve tried shutting down the kernels completely and re-initiating but the same problem is still occurring, I restarted Jupyter and my laptop but it’s still infinitely trying to go through and not doing anything
Any help would be really appreciated
