strange scrolling

  louandel 22:14 28 Oct 06

I have recently upgraded from xp home to xp pro. Everything fine. Except when i scroll in word, or internet explorer, vertical or horizontal, it is in slow jerky movements, like the page is moving over a bit at a time, and parts of it are moving faster than other bits. Very frustrating!

Anybody got any ideas?

Could be you need to update your GPU (graphics card) drivers.

when I go into systems /device Manager there is a big yellow question mark next to video controller and video controller (VGA compatible).
It tells me that the drivers are not installed so i ask it to do it. It cant find any on the computer. I am unsure what my video card is.

Another good site for GPU drivers is click here .

Scroll down to drivers marked with WHQL if you're not happy with beta ones.
WHQL = windows hardware quality labs support.

In everest click on display then click on windows video. This will display your graphics card info.
Then find and download the appropriate drivers.
