Intermittent web performance

  spikey 12:12 20 Apr 2003

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4300, 320mg Ram, 20 Meg hard drive, running Windows 98 SE. When working on the net the computer will "stop", that is the two small monitors shown on the bottom of the screen will not be lit up, as they are when working normally. This will last for a minute or two, I can then carry on surfing for a minute or so then it will happen again.
I've removed all programs from working in the background I've updated modem driver and even
formatted the drive re installed windows 98se. Even with nothing else loaded on the hard
drive it still happens.
Now and then after starting Internet Explorer, the "Dial up connection" dialog box won't appear for a minute or so.
Anyone with ant ideas would be gratefully recieved. Help

In Internet properties and connections, is "Perform system security check before dialling" ticked? if it is un-tick it.
