WinXP - scrolling pages

  coinneach 21:30 10 Jul 2003

After a reinstall of WinXP, I'm being driven seasick by scrolling pages behaving like tumbling venetian blinds. How do I restore normality? The smooth scrolling option in Internet Options seems to have no effect. In any case, this happens in other windows as well.

Hi, did you check for all your critical updates,and all your drivers after reinstall of xp?

Thanks for responding,OneSirKnight.
Yes, I did wade through all the Windows updates. There were 36 of them! How about the drivers? Would they have been included in the W updates?
If not, how do I check them?

Don't know about the XP version but on the 98 Tweak Ui on the general card there is a tick for smooth scrolling.

You've answered your own question.

Updated Graphics drivers will sort it. Not the Windows Update ones.

You're absolutely right, Powerless. It was the graphics. I'm back in business now. Many thanks to all who responded.
