The only suggestion I have right now is to list some computer specifications.  The easiest way to get what is needed for help is to click on "About Second Life" under the "Help" menu.  Copy the specs given and paste back here.

Don't start a new thread.  Use the "Options" in the upper right corner of your post and "Edit" to add the specs and any comment you might want to add.

It's probably not people that are causing that.  It's just that your graphics card is getting overloaded. The more you change your point of view and force the card to dlownload and render new information, the more stress you are putting on it.  Be worried about that.  If your machine is just barely powerful enough to meet SL's standards, you may be overheating its graphics card or other key components.  Burning one out can be an expensive catastrophe.

The HD 3000 graphics adapter will run SL.  But it will work best with your preference settings at medium or below.  Rolig has a great point on the camming around putting extra work on the graphics adapter and if your adapter was intergrated any place other than the CPU (which is where that graphics chipset is intergrated) you probably would not be in much danger of overheating the chipset.  However, your graphics and CPU are bundled together which presents a very real possibility of producing enough heat to cause damage to the CPU (that is the heart of any computer.....it goes, your computer is completely down until the CPU is replaced.  An i5 CPU is a little more than $200 USD.........and that's one that is on sale. 

Lower your settings in preferences.
