FrEeZiNg/ unReSpOnsive

Hello all:


Need help... Browser closes by itself. On other occassions freezes. Email also closes as i am reading or typing. Youtube does not rspond; frozen screen. I've cleared all on settings. Nothing changes. Even this msg was difficult to finish, as the cursor kept jumping to the subject area while typing.

Re: FrEeZiNg/ unReSpOnsive

That was also happening to mine!  However smart advisors on here advised a few things.  See if you can find the thread on here re: FREEZING.  What solved "my" problems was rebooting the router and then.....rebooting my PB in that order.  Before I did those 2 things I also cleaned out all of my cache, history, security, filters etc.  See if those things help you.  I have a whole new PB today due to just those simple solutions!  I hope it fixes it for you.

Follow that good advice.


By the way, the jumping and random capital letters you experience in this forum is a problem with this forum which is incompatible with Playbook keyboard.  that will not go away any time soon. Use a laptop in this forum to add a new thread.
