Screen lock up.

Ok, i got a lil problem with my computer.
When i go on certain websites, or start up Origin when i wanna play BF3, my screen lock up for a few seconds. The sounds hold up some times, and starts again when the screen is working again. It has been like this for a while. And i upgraded my computer for a month or 2, for better performance, and was hoping it would stop locking up. But no luck. This dos not happen when i start any other programs, only origin or certain websites.

Any idea on what the problem might be?

Check if Flash Player and Java are up to date, and maybe re-install them anyway.
In case you were wondering, both are components used to display correctly animated sites (like Origin) and used in some games as well (to see in-game menus/videos/cinematics).

Yeah I would go with what bobafetthotmail said in updating Flash & Java.
However if you do that and the problem still continues it may possibly be your display driver so try updating that. If the problem still persists I reckon there's some corrupted Windows files.

Try updating your Graphics/Video card driver to do this.

Go to Start > In the Search type "Device Manager" > Click Display Adapters > Then right click on your video card > Then click update driver software.

Should look something like this:

My driver is up to date, so i dont think thats the problem.

So i think a reinstaling of W7 might be the solution then. Guess its about time aswell for a good cleaning on the machine. Been over about 2 years now anyway.
