reset your modem/router ...

power off your machine

power off your router/modem

wait a few minutes

restart modem/router

wait till it's up and running

restart your machine.

 

put your graphic preferences lower, you might ask too much from your machine.

If it doesn't work and need more help, edit your post and add your system specs ( copy/paste from the "help" in your viewer)

It sounds very much as if you are using a computer that was never designed to run programs like Second Life.  It's crashing often because you are trying to force it to do things that are overstressing it and potentially causing damage.  We can only guess, though, without knowing exactly what your computer looks like. 

Next time you start your viewer, do not complete the login proccess.  Instead, look in the upper left corner of the startup screen for the HELP link. Click it, and then About Second Life.  In the window that appears, click Copy To Clipboard.  Then come back here and paste that information into your original question. (Click the Options link in the upper right corner of your question and then EDIT).  When we have that information, it will be easier to make intelligent guesses.

Hi alexander

 

What viewer are you using? it could be a problem with the settings, which is easy enough to check.

 

Also, as suggested, reboot your modem to clear out any connection issues.

 

If you can tell what viewer you're using, I will talk you through the relevant settings to check.

 

regards,

Alexander,

Your laptop should be able to run a SL Viewer on the very lowest Graphics Slider setting. There is no getting around the fact that the Graphics Chip Set [2009 technology] is missing a lot of upscale features required for a modern 3D application....
