Scrolling very slow

  claluc 23:59 23 Aug 2008

Just installed a new HDD with XP and all other software, (old HDD died)
Everything works ok except for the scrolling up/down and across screens.
When grabbing the scroll bars or using mouse wheel instead of moving quickly through pages I get a kind of "curtain" effect, screens seem to refresh constantly and move a piece at a time,this makes it very difficult to get on the precise area wanted.
When using wheel they move line by line and if wheel is turned too much pages start scrolling very slow and then suddently jump to either beginning or end.
This only happens since re-install, have tried mouse settings, no changes at all.
Any ideas?

Could be an issue with MOBO chipset drivers or VGA card drivers, updating may help...

As MAT ALAN, install your drivers from the motherboard disc that should have been supplied with the PC.
Sounds like a graphics card driver missing.

Re loaded Nvidia graphics drivers, seemed to have got worse as I could not get above 800x600 resolution. Trying higher settings triggered "out of frequency" and black screen.
Got around it by tweaking nVidia Graphics card (Ge Force 600GT ) settings in display properties, took several attempts but eventually worked at [email protected] refresh rate.
Strange is that monitor type (Daewoo HL711A)not recognised either by system nor by Everest scan.
It only shows as "Default Monitor" in one and "Monitor" in the other. Should Plug and Play also recognise Make/Type?
It came without Drivers CD, is it worth searching on the web and installing or better leave it alone whilst it works ok?
Thanks for help so far, much appreciated.
