my comp pauses every 3 seconds

my comp pauses every 3 seconds

my comp pauses every 3 seconds

I have a p3-600, 256 mb ram, win98se.

Every 3 seconds my comp pauses. For example- if I go into a word processor and hold down a key, the character is printed repeatedly until a "pause" occurs at the 3 second mark, then it begins printing the character again. The characters are not "lost" during the pause. They are printed on the screen immediately after the pause. ANY ideas?

RE: my comp pauses every 3 seconds

try removing as many background-apps as possable, the problem may lie in memory avaliability. for a how-to on removing items that start up automatically , see the response to: can't find out why or where folder is being opened up (posted 5/18)

**-Trying to build a documentation of a Javascript DOM, crossbrowser, of course. E-mail me if you know of any little known events and/or methods, etc.

RE: my comp pauses every 3 seconds

Already tried those things.The only things running in the background are systray and explorer.
