Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Screen transition while scrolling

With XP When I scroll a page the screen changes like a small wave moving vertically. This is very disconcerting. I have tried all the settings I can think of. The only way I can chage it is to set the hardware acceleration to full slow, then if I play videos etc. the image is jerky.

What am I missing?

Seems like a problem with the video card driver. Can you check if Windows is using "Standard VGA Driver" video? (Right click the My Computer Icon, select Properties - Hardware - Device Manager - 2x Click Display Adapter.) If you can identify the video card/chip of your computer (Example Nvidia or ATI), you may need to get the appropriate drivers to optimize your display.

Screen keeps scrolling


usually screens will scroll like that if you have accidentally pushed down on the middle mouse button - you will see a circle with a double ended arrow in it. Moving the mouse in any direction will make the page scroll up or down indefinitely until you deactivate the scroll or move your mouse to the centre of the screen where page stops scrolling but is still active.

The page scrolls up and down - somtimes even jumps up and down - when the cursor is nowhere near the right hand of the screen where the vertical scroll bar is.


It is possible you might have picked up a virus, or a bad device driver. Try a system restore taking the computer back in time before this happened, may resolve the issue.

How do you make the page scroll smoothly in windows xp i have tried checking the smooth scrolling box in tools but nothing happens.The wave scrolls in waves.


Hello,
I think you issue is the stuttering effect of scrolling.
Actually in windows, the way of behaving of the mouse scroll wheel is likely controlled by the device driver... So checking the smooth scrooling option may not work. So you can find updated drivers for your mouse which can resolve your issue.
Also, you can do one thing... Go to the menu that controls the options for your mouse.... the menu where you change the mouse pointer's speed. There, go to the " Wheel" menu and lessen the no. of lines to be scrolled per scrolling of the wheel. I hope I am successful in resolving your issue.
Thank you...

I dont understand where the scroll zone is on my hp mini. Is it actually on the touch pad, and if so where?


If it is on your touch pad it will be indicated with a small vertical bar, on the right hand side. Slide along that to scroll.

If it doesn't work, then the laptop doesnt have one, and you'll have to use the scroll bar at the side of a web page. (double tap but keep hold on the second tap, this indicates holding down a click) then move up or down as required.

Hope this helps,

Andy

Scroll ring intermittent / non functioal


I have a similar symptom, that is, apparent loss of scroll ring functionality as homercles1 noted, but in fact the scroll ring functionality gets toggled between horizontal scrolling and vertical scrolling as Rithas has noted. A window that is not wide enough to require horizontal scrolling will give the appearance of loss of scroll ring functionality when the scroll ring is in horizontal scroll mode. Likewise, a window that is not tall enough to require vertical scrolling will give the appearance of loss of scroll ring functionality when the scroll ring is in vertical scroll mode.
Solution that worked for me:
My upper right-hand button is defined as "Allow Horizontal Scroll" and by clicking this button, the scroll ring function toggles between horizontal and vertical scrolling. In fact, what can appear to be a nonfunctional scroll ring in some windows is very useful when moving around in large windows.
Hope this comment will be useful to you.
