    Default Wave effect when scrolling drive u nuts...

    operating system XP,
    Whilst scrolling I get a wave effect on my monitor, it ain't pretty and stops u reading as you scroll, anybody any ideas how to smooth this out, it's one of those petty things that invokes pc rage.
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Have you got a scrolling mouse? It could be that iuts set to scroll too many lines at once for your computer to handle?

    I actually had this problem.

    I updated my drivers and it was still the same.

    Try switching your XP to classic view and change your screen refresh down the way or choose the hardware accelerated option.

    It's probably a case of your graphics grinding a bit, my old laptop does this too if you make the mouse jump down the page too much, either reduce the amount of lines or turn off settings like clear type and other stuff to get it running quicker.

    its a graphics driver issue there 100000%

    get lates drivers for your card and you will be sorted. Sometimes there are issues with latest latest drivers, so roll back to 1 from the latest.

    Thanks a lot folks the driver update sorted it out.

    I look at the great Man U. I think how many League
    Championships and other trophies they've won. Compared to them I have done nothing
    in the game -
    M Owen ??
    apologies webslinger couldn't resist it
