Problem with fedora 6 on Dell inspiron E-1505

Hi all,
I have installed fedora-6 on my Dell inspiron E-1505.
Now I have a dual boot arrangement for my laptop.
When boot in fc-6 it works fine normally, but at times specially when I use any graphics application (like starting ooffice etc) the system seems to stall for minutes with no respose. I have a pentium dual core based system with 1Gb rab. When I use the system monitor or Top to see the resourse usage it does not show any high usage on either of the cpu cores also memory ussage is low.
graphics card is intel.

Thanks in Advance

The E1505 is highly compatible. Check your xorg.conf graphics entries.

FC6 is well out of date though.
