  1. What version of OS and Excel?
  2. Cut and paste use's a small amount of physical memory if my research is correct, maybe that could lead you to a bigger problem you never knew you had.

    I was a little annoyed by it myself, IT does crash during other functions but mostly when I'm messing with excel. The computer is obviously a cheap computer?!?!
  5. That laptop only has 2 GB of RAM. With Win7, that is just barely enough. And now you are trying to run an application?

    I would see about getting at least another 2 GB..

    I recommend that you test the memory with memtest86 4.0a

    If the memory is OK then uninstall office 2003 and reinstall.
  7. or if it is a company machine, get your IT dept to fix it, and don't give them the opportunity to point a finger at you.
    I have found that about 50% of laptops (out of a sample of 10ish) have a bad installation from scratch, as if the image does not work. Clean full installations are better. If you can, reinstall office, if they let you, but let your IT dept do the work so you can do yours .
  8. Strangely, I have only once had a similar problem and it was also in Excel 2003 on a Lenovo laptop. I think it was a T60 or something - also given by my employer. It had Windows XP

    Sometimes copy-pasting, or turning a font bold, would crash it, or cause Excel to hang for several minutes. It got to the point that it was so intolerable that I always used to carry around my personal laptop with me, just for Excel.
