Check your QT system panel and turn off hardware acceleration (use GDI only). This may help.
Hi Mylenium, thanks for sparing me some of your time.
I did as you said, within my QT panel, *GDI only* sadly had no positive effect from my perspective, the freezing occured as it has always
For future reference is this setting how I should have it normally, or should i put it back on DirectX accel?
any other thoughts on what the problem could be?
The default setting of using hardware acceleration should work just fine under normal circumstances. If flipping the switch does not change anything, you may have a more generic graphics cards configuration problem. Are you perhaps running with dual screens or at some odd resolution? hardware acceleration often does not work on the secondary monitors... In any case, there are similar hardware acceleration settings in your graphics configuration. Try take them down a notch (partial acceleration) and see if it helps.
