    Evening party goers,
    Working on my bros. comp. Its an old pc with xp pro. Doing a clean install. Downloaded drivers for the video card. (radeon something something.) Everything is installed. Only one minor issue.
    When scrolling there is a slight lag and the same when playing videos. You tube videos slightly lag. I'm sure that this is a minor touch up that needs to be done that I am overlooking.
    Thank you in advance.

    In display properties, turn up hardware acceleration to max. And reboot. Good ole XP ;)

    What are the system specs, and which browser are you using?

    I suspect wrong or incompatible video drivers? I happen to had a similar problems with older cards because i'm downloading from the site, even if it says that it's specifically for that model., I solved by just using the CD the video card came with instead.

    If not, can you tell us what's the spec of the PC? maybe it's the hardware itself
