Exclamation FC6 locks up but mouse still moves. Installed on ASUS w5f laptop

Hi all,

Im extremely newbie towards linux and is completely clueless about what to do. When i was using firefox and scrolling, it suddenly hung. but i was able to move the mouse, not able to click at all though. so i restarted it, and started using firefox again. This time, no problem happened but after entering a windows website, it hung again. -_-

So, i restarted the pc and messed around with the screensavers, and guess what? when i went to check out "Floating Feet" it locked up again -_- the feets still float around after it hung though. I'm not sure iff its the mouse, the display, or the installation. Could someone guide me along with this?

Thank you.
