When ever I scroll down on a webpage, this one for example it starts to lag it seems like take a second to catch up from what i was scrolling. Its a brand new computer amd 64 3200. and this lagging happens in games or music software or internet explorer. What could be the problem. I have a MSI NEO KV8 motherboardwith onboard video, could it be the video card?

Is the page fully loaded before you start to scroll?

Edit- Please forgive my hasty reply. I was trying to multitask . If it happens with everything, make sure your video drivers are the latest version, and that your card isn't overheating. If neither of those are the problem, I would say it might be your video card. Is anything in particular eating up your memory?

Also try disabling the IE Smooth Scroll: Internet Options>Tools>Advanced.

Have you installed the chipset drivers, audio, etc as well?

It happens with anything that is scrolling, otherthan that thre computer is fast as ever, I have an amd 64 3200 with 512MB of ram with an on board video card. I am thinking it might be the video card, cuz even my 333mhz didnt have a problem scrolling. It happens with everything, even when I move the msn messenger box over, it seems to lag and be jumpy.

Goto the video card manufacturer's site and download/install the latest drivers.
