Does anyone else have this problem? For some reason this happens ONLY when I browse this web-site. My laptop is quite powerful - it's a 2.5 GHz Pentium 4, but the CPU gets overloaded when I scroll down these pages. Please help!

Contact manufacturer May 9, 2007

Hello. Laptops are all proprietary and one with a 2.5 GHz P4 is likely still within warranty for free support. Call or visit the manufacturer's web site and open up a support/trouble ticket with, e.g., the service tag (Dell), of your laptop.

Have you tried another browser? May 9, 2007

Hi Paul,

What browser are you using and on what operating system? Have you tried using a different browser? Does that make any difference?

browser May 10, 2007

I use IE 6.0 and Windows XP Professional. I haven't tried other browsers, because I would like to resolve the issue with IE - I am so used to it that I don't want to switch to Opera or anything else. Well, thanks for your comments, I'll keep playing with the browser settings for a while, I guess...:)

Firefox or upgrade to IE7 May 10, 2007

I was going to suggest you to try Firefox. I know nobody who tried it and then switched back to IEicon_smile.gif Opera would be a good option as well.

And if you want to keep using IE, it might be a good idea to upgrade it to version 7 …

Mihai, thank you for your suggestion - I might actually follow your advice if you are so sure about the benefits of this other browser:))

To your seller May 11, 2007

If your PC is covered by warranty, I advice to contact with it's seller. If no, you shall contact with computer's expert or repair company. PC has internal problem.
