Hi folks. How is it going? Hopefully all is well. In one of my machines, if the I'm in widows for some time, I won't be able to scroll normally. I mean, it does it scroll smoothly, however, it does it slowly and in ripples fashion. I'm sorry I can't describe it very well. From what I know, this usually happens when the PC is low on RAM. Now, this machine is quite powerful if we consider it is only used for internet browsing. Quick specs are: AMD Athlon 3200+ 2.0GHz, 2GB DDR RAM, 500GB WD hard drive, ATI 2600xt drivers video card(The fastest I could get for an AGP slot). The mobo is a gigabyte 7n400 if I remember correctly. What gives?
I'm sure it is a memory problem, either system RAM or video memory. I in fact don't like this ATI card. It doesn't run well on the system, and it gave me some driver problems. A restart will fix the scrolling problem temporarily of course, but that's silly you know, just to restart to fix the issue. I tried to forcibly free system RAM by using a RAM manager, but it didn't help. I suspect the video card not being compatible with my system> What do you think I should do?
Thanks in advance.
