I open my sql 2005 manager and the summary tab lets me browse through all the items. However at some point no items appear, I have to close and restart. I try to refresh to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

Are you talking about the SQL Server Management Studio?  What do you mean with "summary tab"?  Perhaps a screenshot can add some clarity here...

Could you explain what you mean?
I.e. post an image of what you mean,
What are you exploring?
What username/credentials do you use to login?
It might be that the username/credentials you use to login does not have the rights to view what you items below a certain object.

In SSMS?  I am afraid not.  Perhaps you are referring to the Object Explorer?

We are talking about SQL Server here, right?  Have to admit that I've never seen the Summary tab either.  How about that screenshot?  Can really clarify some things here methinks...

I think I have figured it out.  When SQL Server 2005 first came out, what is now called Object Details was then called the Summary Page.  That was changed in Service Pack 2 and as we all know that is now called Object Details.

So to answer the author's question, it appears you are using a very old version of SQL Server 2005 and you need to apply at least Service Pack 3.  I suspect that when you do that it will solve your problem as there were many fixes made to the UI in the early days of SQL Server 2005 after it went live.

Incidentally unlike SQL Server 2008 or 2008 R2 you cannot use F7 to display the Object Details.
