Hey guys this is my first post but this is my first official problem I have ever had with a macbook. Please bare with me Ok so my Fiance has this macbook 2.16 ghz (2007) with 2gig of ram, 160gb HD. The problem ---The computer gets spinning wheel for 3 minutes / locks up using web browsers firefox/safari and in other apps. We are talking about general surfing the web, Facebook, Google, Email, News...etc She has Plants Vs Zombies and I know it can run that, but it still gets spinning wheel in that. What I have done ---Did a fresh clean install (put snow leopard, and fully updated) ---monitored the activity (couldn't tell from anything) ---about to take it to genius bar (Low on $$$) My opinion ---I think its hardware, but what? Please help me......Thanks!
