Scrolling

I updated a lot of drivers tonight on my PC.

Since then my screen is scrolling is the only way I can describe it. It looks like waves when for instance I use the wheel on my mouse to move the screen.

If I click on 'Favorites' on the internet for instance the drop down tab is much slower than before.

Is there anything I can do about this.

Many thanks

Try checking your refresh rate.

If you are running XP, try a System Restore back to when everything was ok.

Technotiger,

I was updating a number of different drivers including my Graphics card since then this problem has come about.

I had run a program which told me that some of my drivers were out of date hence the update. (I'm going to move this card to another PC eventually)

So I don't really want to do a restore as I had another problem with passwords on ZonealarmPro which I resolved ok.

I've now got a new Graphics card & PSU so I'll see what happens once I've installed these.

Many thanks

If you have Windows XP, then you can Roll Back once to the previous driver that was installed.

Done the roll back as suggested but got the blue screen on re-boot with a messgae about a hardware change.

Restore then wouldn't work so I turn it off and on again.

Still have this scrolling problem, looked through other messages re this issue to try and resolve the problem but still no joy.

Any other advice anyone can give would be most welcome.

Thanks

To update a graphics driver you must first download the updated drivers in a zip form usually. Then uninstall old drivers and then reboot. Once rebooted, then, unzip new drivers and install. If you try to over install GPU drivers then you will have problems. Looks like you have no drivers working exept the basic xp one.
Find your drivers on Nvidia (Force ware) or ATI, depending on which card you have. Download to desktop then check if you need to uninstall corrupted drivers or you have no drivers on your pc at all.

I'm using ATI Catalyst 6.10 as I downloaded it earlier on the advice of your previous response so that's up to date.
