    Default System momentarily hangs for a few seconds.

    Hi,

    I had a problem where my system momentarily hanged for a few seconds. Sometimes when opened a window like Dolphin or when I made a window full screen, sometimes when clicking on the screen while watching a DVD or sometimes when I clicked on a button it just froze for a few seconds and responded.

    I have fixed the problem by disabling "Processor Power Managament" in the Bios.

    I Hope this will help some of you guys with similar problems. Btw - this happenend on my desktop computer. See specs in my signature

    Thanks

    I also tried your advice but it didn't help.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Many thanks
