I'm having constant viewer crashes and I want to know if there's anyway to fix it...

Question

That's not too surprising.  If you're going to crash, that's one place where it's most likely.  When you cross a region boundary, the servers on both sides have to agree on where you are, how fast you are moving, what you are carrying, who you are talking to, and a host of other things.  There is always a delay, and the servers on both sides stall momentarily.  If they are already very busy because there are lots of people doing things, the servers can be overwhelmed and lose you.

You can make life easier by reducing your draw distance, reducing your avatar complexity, and slowing down.  Also, especially since you are using a pretty lightweight machine, be sure that you have a good solid Internet connection so that you aren't losing data packets or having a delayed signal time.  Don't use wireless (it's not supported or recommended by Linden Lab anyway) and reboot both the modem and router to be sure that they have a firm grasp on your IP address.

Which viewer are you using?

In the top menu bar of the viewer, go to help -> About Second Life / viewer name, click the "Copy to clipboard" button & paste all your system information into a reply here.

There may be a clue in your system info about why you are crashing so much (old intel drivers with the known memory leak for example).

Really need your viewer logs to see what's causing the crash but lets see what the system info shows first.
