I'm trying to discern if the problem is my computer or traffic on ATS. Moving between threads is very slow on my HP XP machine with 1280gb memory. In moving around, I frequently get a black hole in the screen for several seconds with no text except for the header.
It is faster for me to quit the site entirely and then rejoin. Is this normal for heavy traffic or a machine problem? I do have a frequent problem on start up--frequently it doesn't, and it may lock up somewhere along the process. This may happen several times before it gets it right and usually is OK until shut down.
Current Norton is installed, recently defragged plus a shop recently checked it but didn't find anything wrong. And advice would be appreciated. (I'm think I need to find a better shop!)edit on 31-1-2011 by Aliensun because: (no reason given)
