The one that bothers me the most is that when i'm scrolling down a page or web site it's not a smooth scrool. It's choppy. Iv'e gone into the control panel tried a few things & nothing changes. When I scroll I use the up, down botton or the curser. Any help on this would be greatly appreicated.......O buy the way I have a lap top if that makes a difference.
It sounds like you need to download and install updated drivers for your notebook's video device (display driver). The best recommendation would be to visit the notebook's manufacturer site (i.e. Dell, Gateway, Compaq, HP, etc.), and download other drivers specific to your machine ... including:
- network device
I also recommend visiting the Microsoft update site to make certain you have the latest security patches and service pack. A lot of time you will be offered a chance to download and install device driver updates when you are doing XP updates.
