    Question PC Experts

    Ok guys I need ur advice/opinions:

    I have a Dell Studio XPS M1340 laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate & every now & then it just freezes. Most of the time if I let it sit 1~3 mins it will recover. I viewed the dump logs & everything points to Adobe Flash Player so I uninstalled & reinstalled but the problem still persists. Most of the time I have some Facebook games running but I just don't think that's the problem. I also have a Dell Dimension desktop runing Windows XP PRO & cannot seem to duplicate this problem. However, the games run really slow because it just doesn’t have the needed memory.

    My son has a model 1330 running Vista & his does the same thing. Most of the time he's on Facebook but not playing games.

    My laptop is still under warranty but I have not consulted with Dell yet. I do have a background in computers but mainly BASIC & COBOL programming.

    Appreciate any input,
    Rob

    Try running the facebook apps in a different web browser and see if the problem persists. I like firefox but chrome is just as good or better.

    sounds like a driver issue to me but hey what do i know.

    remove flash and see if it still does it to rule it out, it is a massive cpu big the last few versions and facebook is monkey as written java code. have you updated your java engine?

    Facebook and Zynga Games operate on a fix on the fly mentality. They seem to have a hard time keeping their content stable across all the different browsers. One day IE is perfect and FF sucks and then the next day it is the other way around. I don't think it's the computer at all. It is basically the Flash timing out while waiting on the information. After a few minutes Flash gives up or the rest of the packets arrive and it starts responding again. That's why you are able to resume after a few minutes. I also be it is more prevalent during certain times of the day. In the morning when everyone is getting on FB after waking up and in the evening after everyone gets home from work.

    The reason it doesn't happen on XP is probably because that platform isn't running the latest program engines and drivers so some of the bells and whistles aren't present but is more stable.

    Try a different browser such as chrome and see if you still have issues. I bet 99.999 it is not your PC.

    Also, going Mac will not fix flash issues as Steve Jobs says most OS X crashes are caused by Flash.
