    Hello, I am having trouble a bit of an issue that is beyond me, recently my computer keeps freezing and (or) objects/windows become transparent or black. I am using a T3090 emachine with windows xp service pack 2, NVIDIA GeForce4 GPU. also if it helps any the program this most often occurs on is my Browser, Opera and always when I am on Chatango (which is a flash site I believe). Thank you in advanced. and let me know if there is anything else you need to know to help.

    All the Windows Updates installed? Latest version of Opera? Tried an updated graphics driver? Updated Flash?

    Make sure that you graphics card is no overheating, too. Remove dust, make sure any fans are turning, move other cards away if you have alternate slots.

    Everything seems to be up to date, I use SlimDrivers to check for updates often, but I also check manually every once in awhile. One other thing I forgot to mention was I recently restored the computer to its factory defaults because I was having an insane amount of trouble installing my wireless adapter.

    [edit] Installed Card Reader Driver, and Motherboard Driver Package from emachine's site, as well as upgraded to service pack 3. Haven't seen any problems so far...but I only did just install them.
