When ever i scroll down from page to page either on the internet or on applications such as word documents, my monitor does not scroll smoothly, but rather jumps screens. For example, when you grab the scroll bar on the right side of internet pages and pull down, it should scroll smoothly as you go down the page. My monitor jumps from page to page very slowly, and is not a smooth transition. It is quite annoying. Please help!

Re: my monitor has a horrible lag
Your monitor should have a reasonable to good refresh rate so I doubt it's at fault. It sounds as if you have another program running in the background which is slowing your computer down. Press the keys CTRL. ALT and DELETE at the same time and have a look to see what's running. Close down any programs you aren't using and see if that fixes things.
Another problem could be a shortage of memory. I'd recommend no less than 512 Megabytes or ram with Windows XP.
If you could give me more info as to which operating system you're using, how fast is the CPU and how much memory etc it would be easier to diagnose.
One last thing, you could have a virus and it's chewing up memory. Do you have an up to date virus checker? If not install AVG. it's completely free and available on the net. While you're at it install a spyhunter program and malware checker. There's some weird rogue nasties crawling all over the net. You could've even installed a nasty along with a freebie program you got off the net.

While browsing, hold down the Ctrl button and roll your mouse's scroll back and forth in order to change page size. As far as I recall, under Windows 7 you could do the same thing with text in rich-text documents, help files and while viewing images using the default Windows 7 application.
I think you want to know how to zoom on a internet page ..and this is made by holding down the ctrl and scrolling with the mouse or the pad..For other applications ..the zoom is located under preferences..or options .. For the desktop ..the enlarging and minimizing is made from the properties (click right on desktop and choose properties..or personalize for w-7 )..in there on settings you have the possibility to enlarge icons ..and fonts ..
some printers collate pages, which means they print from the last page to the first page. so that when you pick up the pages from the finished printing tray they are in order.
if you say it stops after the first page, there are a few possible reasons for this. either you closed the application you were printing from before you finished printing (which sometimes cancels the printing job) or the computer decided it wanted to cancel the printing on its own, this can happen if the printer has sometimes an error, this error or cause could be a lag between the data transfer to the printer.
try printing without collating the pages, while keeping the application/document open.

This is a very interesting problem.. Normally I would say the a router could not cause this kind of problem, but if the page is still loading, it could be possible.
When this happens, has the page finished loading all ready? The little circle of dots spinning in the top right of the browser if you are running firefox, will tell you if the page is still loading. There will be a similar icon for Internet Explorer too.
If the page has already loaded completely, then there is no way a router could cause the slow down. If you used the install CD that came with the router (no necessary by the way) then it could have loaded some "free" software on PC and this software is now slowing the browser down.
