    "Keep browsing the web site until you get to the page where you are asked to inform the price range and the number of rooms you want in the unit. After providing this information, press ´enter´ and wait for the response. The problem is that my computer freezes at this point. I can’t go further. But the intriguing part is that it only happens when I try to access the web site from my laptop. The problem doesn't occur when I use my desktop. I wonder if you are experiencing the same problem. "


    Please, is this text ok?
    Would you think it was written by a native?

    Thanks.

    Everything seems natural except this, JC.

    to inform the price range and the number of rooms you want in the unit.

    Re: computer freezes

    I'd change these:
    asked to inform the price range- asked to state/give
    I can’t go further- any further

    Re: computer freezes

    Just to make sure that we're on the same page. Is this about renting a room/rooms in a hotel/motel?

    Tdol made an excellent suggestion, JC. Take a peek at his posting.

    it's about renting a house/apartment.
    I am supposed to say what's the price range and number of rooms in the unit that I am looking for.
    thanks again.

    Oh, okay, JC.

    ... the page where you are asked to enter/fill in the price range and the number of rooms you want in the unit. After providing this information, press ´enter´ and wait for the response.

    Is there a blank space and you type in a response?

    it's not a blank space. Actually I am supposed to check (choose) the price range and the number of rooms from a list. This way, I think it would be ''enter'' instead of ''fill in''. I tried to use a common verb, "inform", but it seems not to sound natural and appropriate, right?
    Thanks again.

    Are there little circles next to the options and when you click on one, it "lights" up? If so, I'd use "click on".

    ... the page where you are asked to click on the price range and the number of rooms you want in the unit.
