My computer has gone strange, all of a sudden. I notice it in firefox, when i type, or scroll, it keeps pausing, and then "catches up with itself". This can take anywhere from 2-10 seconds, and the pauses happen every 10 seconds or so. this pausing ONLY happens with firefox, but it appeared the same time as what is described below, so I am sure it is linked.
then, when I thought that was annoying, I tried to load a program from the start menu, and a message came up saying that I had "gone over quota" or something and that the task could not be carried out. i though hold up, what is this all about? run out of mem? maybe? ill check task manger. nope, didnt like that either. said that the application could not be started, memory error yah de yah. the windows I had open went all funny, sort of "layering on top of each other" and the text on the title bars disappeared.
I then ran a memtest, which it passed with no problems. the page file is set as normal, and there are no problems there.
any ideas? this is very strange to me....
I dont have time to reformat it, due to lots of college work etc, so I REALLY dont want to have to do that.
