Screen fades then hangs - help!

Postby joe5749 on Mon Dec 29, 2008 9:49 pm

I loaded Linux Mint a few days ago and everything seems to be ok except sometimes the screen fades to half grey then I have to force quit that application. Sometimes it appears back and I can continue on but mostly I force quit. What is this? I have never seen this, can someone tell me how to fix or at least where to look . . .
thanks - joe

This happens when an application is getting locked. I only see it with Firefox when internet goes down and it is only the application that has problem that's greyed out
Which application gives you problems?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Husse - I purchased and loaded CrossOver and installed MS Office XP. Nothing in Office XP will run without locking but CrossOver runs fine. I contacted CrossOver tech help and they said Office XP should run fine. In the last few days I looked at Openoffice 3.0 and it meets my needs so I unloaded Office XP and everything is fine. Thanks for your help . . .
