    Unhappy Computer freezes and/or sound like scratched cd until i move the mouse or type.


    Computer freezes and sound like scratched cd but with longer intervals(ONLY IF I'M LISTENING MUSIC OR PLAYING A VIDEO) until i move the mouse or type.

    Why does it happens?
    I installed ubuntu 10.4 desktop and notebook, windows xp and 7, now i'm on 10.10.
    It always happened so I guess is my hardware.

    I'm using a Toshiba Notebook NB205-N312/BL

    Also sometimes the pictures on websites and items on gnomepanel looks strange, like with diagonal slashes.

    I suspect is related with the processor but im only guessing, what do you think?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Are you saying that this problem exists with all the mentioned operating systems? If so, then it is definitely a hardware problem. Hopefully it is still under warranty...

    I got my wife an NB205-N330 for her birthday last year and it works fine with Win7, Ubuntu 10.10, and Scientific Linux.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
