Twice in the past two days, I've had this issue occur, where I've been mass-opening tabs on a website, obviously something that can cause some memory problems at some point, but I get easily over-worried about any little thing that goes wrong with my computer.
What happens is usually the very last tab will show blank, and the mouse will start to stutter/jump/move slowly/etc for about 1-2 seconds, before the last tab refreshes with the typical problem occurring and page refreshed thing, but with only that tab refreshing (all others are fine) and mouse returning to normal.
Is this a normal thing for Internet Explorer 10 when bogging the memory a bit?
I only ask due in part to my paranoia, but also because a week ago I had similar problems in which bogging down the memory in IE10 (or most of the time, just opening video files), the entire computer would freeze up for 2-3 seconds, then the motherboard would boop once, and everything return to normal. Either the motherboard failed overnight (while the comp was off) or it got damaged when I touched it (when I went to open it up and adjust the RAM sticks, thinking that might've been the problem) but I got a new motherboard, same model, and this problem is suspiciously similar.
Is this current issue related, or is it just IE10's response to bogging the memory? Or is it an entirely unrelated thing?
I took my computer to the people at Geek Squad (twice in two weeks) and they (supposedly) ran tests on everything and found no problems with any of the hardware devices (the RAM, video card, motherboard, and hard drives were less than 1 year old).
Please tell me I broke my own motherboard with my grimey, static-y fingers!
