On both of my browsers, Internet Explorer and Firefox, when I scroll down they lag oddly, loading.. uhm.. literally about one page at a time? I have no clue what's causing this problem at all. Any suggestions as to how to fix it? :x

Hi, welcome to TSF

It sounds like a problem with your graphics driver.

Does this happen when you use the scrollbar, cursor keys and mouse scroll wheel?

Open Notepad and paste enough text into it to fill a few pages, then try scrolling up and down. Does it lag in the same way your browsers do?

Download the latest compatible driver from the graphics card manufacturer's website, install and reboot.

Or if you have onboard/integrated graphics, download the driver from the motherboard manufacturer's website.

It lags on the text document, also. It lags using the wheel, scroll bar, and keys, yes. I have an integrated one, and I recently reformatted. We had troubles so we had to re-download every driver. I'm not sure if we have the right ones.. :S How do you check what your motherboard's manufacturer is?

To see your motherboard details, go to Start > Run, type msinfo32 and click OK. Post back with the details for System Manufacturer and System Model on the right.

Or you can install Everest (freeware) and look under Motherboard > Motherboard for the ID and Name. And under Computer > Summary for the Motherboard Name and Chipset.

It is the Graphics driver. Windows is using the default one which causes this.

So you downloaded the correct drivers from here: http://support.dell.com/support/down...&catid=&impid=

It still happens?
Is this something new?

It's fixed now. I just downloaded the wrong drivers, and didn't know the correct ones. So we checked what the model was and got the correct ones. Thanks for helping.
