Two possible solutions: 1. In your browser > Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Check “Use smooth scrolling”. 2. If that doesn’t work, try updating your graphic card through Device Manager. Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > Display Adapters > Right click > Update. If that doesn’t update or doesn’t work, try updating through manufacturer’s website.

Fix choppy scrolling


Hi Paula,
Is the scrolling choppy no matter what program you are using? WordPad, Internet Explorer, all the other programs you use? Another question, is scrolling choppy if you use an external mouse as well as the on board trackpad? And finally, did this just start recently, or has this been an ongoing problem?

Choppy internet connection


If you are a frequent viewer of Internet-based video, then you know how frustrating it can be when streaming video doesn't play correctly. When a video is described as being "choppy," it can mean several things, including out-of-sync audio, stuttering frame rate and/or inconsistent stream speeds. However, although this term can mean several things, there are several ways to address all of these issues at once and help make your video viewing experience a bit smoother. Empty your Internet browser's cache and temporary files. Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Clear Private Data Now" (in Firefox) or "Delete Browser history" (in Internet Explorer). When you browse the Internet, your browser collects information from the websites you visit and carries this information as temporary and cache files. Too many of these files can bog down your computer, so delete them. Disable hardware acceleration. Open your computer's "Control Panel" and then click "Display." Select the "Settings" tab, click on "Advanced" and then click "Troubleshoot." Drag the hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left. This procedure can help reduce the strain on your processor, which can lead to choppy videos. Add virtual memory. If you are using Windows Vista or 7, you can add extra RAM to your computer by plugging a USB mass storage device into the computer. The operating system will automatically convert the unused space into RAM. Run your disk defragmenting utility. Click "Start" and then select "Programs." Click "System Tools" and then "Disk Defragmenter." This utility will eliminate the fragmenting of files, which could be taxing your processor.

Some sites the scroll down speed is really slow. It seems like text pages are ok and ones with images really slows the scroll responce down. Any ideas??? Thanks!!


Sounds like you are having problems with your Internet connection speed.You could try some of these tips..
  • Step 1 Click Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections.
    Select "Internet Options."
    Under Check for newer versions of stored pages, click "Automatically." Under browsing history, click "Settings."
    If you're using dial-up, set the number under Disk Space to Use to between 250 and 1024 megabytes (MB). If you're using a DSL or cable connection, set it between 50 and 75 MB. Click "OK."
  • Step 2 Select "Delete" under Browsing history.
    Click "Delete files..." under Temporary Internet Files to clear your browser cache.
    Click "Delete cookies..." to remove all cookies from your hard drive.
  • Step 3 Disable any browser add-ons you don't need. In Internet Options, click "Programs." Click "Add-ons currently loaded in Internet Explorer." Select the name of the add-on you don't want to load, and select "Disable" under Settings at the bottom of the dialogue box. Avoid deleting ActiveX controls as this will most likely cause the browser to prompt you each time you encounter content on the web, such as Flash animations, that use that control.
  • Step 4 Switch to a faster browser. While Internet Explorer is the most popular browser, it often causes pages to load slowly. Download a free browser such as Firefox, Opera or Chrome to get a quick speed boost to your browsing.
  • Step 5 Disable images in your browser. To disable images in Internet Explorer, open Internet Options and click the "Advanced" tab. Scroll down to "Multimedia" and uncheck "Show Pictures."
    To disable them in Firefox, click Tools > Options in your browser window and select "Content." Uncheck the box beside "Load images automatically."
    To disable images in Opera, open the arrow beside the camera icon at the bottom of your browser, and select "No images."
    To browse with Google Chrome without images, right click on the Chrome shortcut and place the switch "-disable-images" without quotes after the last quotation mark in the path of the file.
  • Step 6 Disable active content if you're still experiencing a problem with your browsing speed. Return to the "Advanced" tab in Internet Options. Uncheck the boxes beside "Play animations in webpages" and "Play sounds in webpages."

    Can not browse on my motokrzr k1 cellular


    Your Motorola KRZR might already come with pre-loaded settings for your mobile operator’s data services so you can connect to the mobile Internet. This is a mobile phone version of the normal Internet on your PC at home or work. Many of the same websites are available on mobile phones, but are designed specifically for the smaller screens. To select your preferred mobile Internet account:
    • From the Menu screen, highlight WebAccess and click Select
    • Scroll down to Web Sessions and click Select
    • Scroll down the list to select the mobile Internet service you want – e.g. O2 Post Pay, Orange GPRS WAP, T-Mobile, Virgin or Vodafone
    • Press Options and select Set Default.
    • Press Exit and then scroll up to Browser.The web browser will automatically open, connecting you to your operator’s mobile Internet site.
    • Now, when you select WebAccess on the standby screen, then select Browser, you will automatically connect to the mobile Internet.
    Alternatively, you can create your own account to connect to your operator’s mobile Internet service. To do this you must first get the settings from your mobile operator (They can be found on mobile operators’ websites), then:
    • From the Menu screen, highlight WebAccess and click Select
    • Scroll down to Web Sessions and click Select
    • Scroll down the list to the bottom and select [New Entry]
    • Then enter the settings for your mobile Internet service

    Scroll mouse is choppy when I am trying to scroll. It sometimes even goes back up. Very irritating.


    Try going into your Control Panel, go into the Mouse controls, and change the wheel scroll settings. There's a "lines to scroll" option that determines how much or little the wheel moves the page. Try changing this number up or down and see if the problem gets any better. Does the scroll wheel feel OK? is it sticky or hard to turn? is it smooth and loose?
