IE9 hangs when hardware accelleration is used in several Toshiba laptop models
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/bulletin.jsp?soid=2967610

Resolution:
Disable the use of hardware acceleration and use software rendering instead.

Procedure:
1. Close all Internet Explorer windows
2. Click on the Windows Start Menu and type Internet Options, press Enter
3. When the Internet Options window appears, select the Advanced tab.
4. Under Accelerated graphics, check the Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering checkbox.

You do not have to close the Internet Explorer windows, you can set Software Rendering from withing Internet Explorer windows. But you have to restart Internet Explorer for the changes to take effect.

I don't use IE (Opera here), got the notice from Toshiba, wanted to share with the users here.
I might need it for M$ updates, not sure. Haven't updated to IE9. I haven't even ran IE8 yet :)

Anyway, the bulletin's point 2 looks goofy to me. On XP I'd do Start >Settings > ControlPanel > InternetOptions.
But it doesn't matter how we get there, so long as we do, I suppose :)

These days computers come with GPU - a separate processor for graphics processing. The GPU has inbuilt complex instructions for graphics calculations and can perform very fast graphics rendering. If an application uses the GPU for graphics processing -> hardware acceleration.

If your computer does not have GPU or not good enough GPU, then complex graphics calculations are emulated by a software and then executed on the main CPU -> software rendering.
