Default Hurry! help!

i just reformated my windows xp home, and now when i scroll in any program it majorly lags and the screen slugs down really slow.
the lag is similar to the lag in a pc game when you have a really slow pc. in other words it "jerks"

Did you install the latest driver for your video card after you reformatted?

the drivers that come with XP aren't usually designed to take full advantage of your video card and such, go to or the manufacturers website and try and find the latest drivers for your video card
