scrolling causes pages to "vibrate" or not move smoothly

by suzanne Geller / November 3, 2004 11:32 AM PST

Whenever I attempt to scroll, pages seem to 'vibrate"
and move in a jerky manner, almost as if they were rippling.How can I fix this? It is hard on the eyes. Also, I still have internet pages appearing in a tall vertical state, but I can maximize
them. Just an extra step I would like to get rid of. I use 98SE.

onboard video or card?

check video ram size. start>programs>accessories>system information>tools>directX>display tab. If not here (update to directX 8.1 or higher), then find aida32 download (about 2mb) and install it, a hardware analysis, and check display.
The point is that 2mb is about minimum, 4mb reccommended for PI or higher. The video tries to load out as you scroll and it takes awhile to complete the page. It's really bad with 1mb video.
Also check device manager to see if you still have the right video drivers instead of standard VGA.
Can you change to 16 true color and higher than 640x480 pixel in control panel>disply properties?
