    Just gone from vista to xp and one problem ive noticed is that everytime i scroll the screen appears to refresh. Even if i click once on the scrollbar then it refreshes ( can be explained as the screen flashes)

    Its also making browsing very slow as every scroll takes its time to refresh etc so scrolling down quiet far takes some time.

    Thanks,

    Yesterday i had vista and didnt have this problem. Today i installed windows xp and the problem started. So maybe a setting has been changed during the change in OS ?

    If you havent installed you video drivers. that could be your problem. Try that and let us know.

    Looking in my drivers thing, under Other Devices it has a yellow question mark.
    Other devices
    - Other PCI bridge device
    - Pci Device
    - Sm bus controller
    - Video Controller ( vga compatable )

    They all have a yellow question mark next to them.

    Also my speakers havent been picked up on the computer so it appears there is a missing sound driver. So it might make sense that some drivers are missing ?

    So i went onto PackardBell.com and when looking at the drivers for my system, it had sound, video and chipset.
    2 of the 3 drivers are for windows vista. Does it really matter ?

    It started downloading very very slow, and after a while it says
    " download error "
    ... could not be saved because the source file could not be read.
