Very slow screen refresh on Windows XP
Posted on 2006-05-30
I've just installed a legal version of Windows XP Pro on my machine. It previously had XP Home on it and ran fine. Its an Pentium 4 3.06Ghz machine with 1GB ram installed.
Since the reinstall, scrolling in explorer is awful! Its gained a very slow refresh rate and is almost unusable. Not the smooth scrolling I use to have. The start menu appears and dissappears fine but when you move a window across the desktop its very stuttery and sluggish. Its rather like video moving at five frames a second and the you sit and watch the system redraw the window in the new location!
Anybody any thoughts?
