Whenever I am online my screen seems to keep freezing for a few seconds and then re-start again. EVen scrolling down a page doesn't get an immediate response. Can anybody help?

Thanks
:confused:

are you using compiz? Try disabling that and then see if it continues to happen.

Have you tried using another possibly lighter web browser?

Try what C!oud suggested. I have had the same problem, even as much as going to the grey screen, since the update to Firefox 3.

What kind of Internet connection do you have? Dial up, DSL, Cable? Sounds like a slow connection. Do all pages do this?

I'll try what c!oud has suggested - thanks.

I have a broadband connection that until recently has worked fine.
