Question about Computers & Internet

Windows vista freezes

I would just be surfing the internet, talking on MSN and/or listening to music, when my laptop just freezes. The mouse doesn't move, CTRL+ALT+DELETE doesn't work, so i can't open the task manager. If i have no music playing, i cant really tell because when the music is playing, it freezes into a loop. So the only way i stop it is by taking out the battery, it's happened quite a lot, then when i restart, it asks how i want to start Windows, i just say ''normally''.
I thought it would stop once I got Service Pack 1, but it didn't, although it hasn't happened quite as much... :/

Can anyone help?

    I have 2.00GB.
    It just happens like that, not at specific times and i never really have billions of applications open at the times it does happen.

My built-in webcam on Windows Vista is very slow.

Tipically, video streaming over the internet is slower then when you are not connected to the internet, i.e, quickplay. There are many factors to considers such as your internet speed and the other person's speed. It is normal to see lagging when you are having video conferencing with other people, it also freezes momentarily, but, video should go back to normal after awhile, then, freezes again. Also, it depends on the other person's internet speed.

Best luck

I keep getting an internet exploerer error and my laptop freezes

Did you try to install the new version of internet explorer? Try version 7. If you really can't surf the internet you must find a way to download or order internet explorer and uninstal it of your laptop. If this don't work you may have a virus. Try to instal your version of windows or another os again.

Logitec V270 bluetooth mouse freezes

I found no solution but plenty of similar complaints on the V270 on other than just Vista machines. I will suggest finding another model mouse and check it for Vista compatibility before buying.
I am using a Logitech M-RBB_DEL4 mouse made for Dell, it's bluetooth and works flawlessly on my XP machine along with the keyboard it came with. I will try the one I just ordered on my Vista machine when the BT Keyboard and Mouse arrive.
