    Intrepid freezes when changing windows

    I posted this in Absolute Beginners.
    Intrepid crashes when opening new window
    Well, I have intrepid up and running. Mail works great (zimbra). IM is running (pidgin). Sys. runs great. No software crashes. No viruses. Comming from Windows I am impressed. I have only one problem. It crashes a lot, but only when opening a new window. For instance, I am in Documents and open a folder in there. The folder almost opens (appears translucent), and the sys. locks. Any ideas. Any and all advice will be appreciated.
    I received one reply, and it requested more info.
    Code:

    lspci
    sudo lshw

    The commands above will give us some info about your system. Post them here please and wrap them with the #code brackets for better reading experience.
    This is the output

    I would normally just wait it out, but this issue is causing me no end of trouble. For instance, I am learning C++, and had to start over 6 times due to freezes. And something tell me this is going to be a complicated fix. So, any help will be greatly appreciated.

    You know it's time for a new computer when your's says, "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that."
    By the way, it will probably be a Dell......running Vista.

    Re: Intrepid freezes when changing windows

    Hi and this is the Unanswered Posts Team forums for team discussion not for support. Since you have posted the same info in your thread already it would not help for me to move this post there. I would suggest you bumping your thread in ABT with more info on what you have tried to correct the issue. Thanks

    Edit posted some ideas in the thread.

    Sorry, my mistake. I thought there was a place to post unanswered posts, and that this was it. I can't add to my post with what I have tried, because I don't have a clue as to what might be causing. I guess I will research this outside of the forums. I need to find an answer, because I am tired of freezing every 45 minutes. Again, sorry to have mis-posted.
