Blender 2.53 UI frequently freezing

I have a problem that occurs frequently while I’m working - the interface freezes for a little while and then it starts responding again. Then after some time it freezes again. It’s very annoying. I don’t know why this would happen to me, I haven’t seen anyone complaining about this in the forum.
Maybe if it’s hardware related… or some system settings, i don’t know.

My laptop specs are:
CPU: Intel Core i3 2.13 GHz
Video: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 1 GB
Windows 7

Please help me!

I’m bumping this again…
Can anyone help me?

Bumped back !!

Do some basic problem solving actions:
Update your graphics card drivers
Any background applications - antivirus scanner settings
What happens in the task manager when you have a freeze, is it random or are you doing something specific action. Does it happen on all blend files.

I seem to have the same problem. No particular action. Even when it is a new scene with the default cube. Unfortunately I am not at liberty to make changes to the software, or driver on this machine. :frowning:

Soo, problem persists with blender 2.54, although it’s less often I guess.
The freezing seems to be random and during a freeze task manager shows no increased cpu usage.
I read that ATI Radeon cards usually cause Blender to perform poorly during editing. I’ve tested 2.53 on my old computer that is with an Nvidia GeForce FX5200 and it experiences the same freezing.
