I play games on Facebook and most of the time I get the message Not Responding and the page turns kinda white but I can still see the images on the screen. Its like they all loose color or something. What can I do to fix this? Sometimes it lasts a few seconds, sometimes it last minutes, and sometimes I have to restart all together.

what web browser are you using? make sure you update to the latest version and have all the necessary plug-ins installed.

Win7 and Vista will do that when the window is NOT reponding (and should say that on the title bar of the window). Probably not much you can do about it if this is the only time it happens (with web pages). It is probably because the browser is waiting for a response from a server and it has exceeded a time limit that had been set. If it happens on programs that are confined to your computer, not using the internet for data, then you might have a h/w or configuration problem if it is repeatable.

hi i would suggest that u first try IE without add-ons, to open that you need to click on start and then type INTERNET in start search, do not hit enter and at the top click on IE without add-ons, (games might not work just see if you get any error as not responding) if that explorer works then u may need to reset your browser u can do that by :
open IE then click on tools and select the last option "internet option", in the new wnidow select the last tab "Advanced" and at the bottom click on reset, follow the on screen instruction and then close and restart internet explorer..
Hope it helps........

for process of elimination, try a different browser like chrome, if it works with chrome them its an IE problem.
