Firefox, stressful? When you're reading text or loading a page, no video? I
wonder what your smiley is supposed to mean. I tested the memory about 6
months ago. It was OK.

But I have lots of problems with electricity. 3 power failures last weekend.
The switch of a lamp that I changed 2 years ago is still dead. I turn the
light on only once or twice at night. About 15 minutes after I open it, my
LCD TV makes a very loud nosie and the image disappears making place to some
heavy "snow". It lasts a few seconds, then the image and sound come back to
normal. There's no correspondence between these problems and the computer
problems though.

I'll continue the inquiry. Thanks for your help. I saved the page and I'll
check when I have time.
