T61 Safe Mode - Slow GUI Window Scrolling

2010-08-19, 18:28 PM

Is it normal for slow moving of gui windows (when you drag and move them aorund the desktop) and more importantly veryslow scrolling within application windows (notepad, dos command window, etc), when you are using the T61 in "Safe Mode" ??? This issue only occurs on the rare times that I might need to boot the T61 into "Safe Mode".

If this is not normal, then what is causing it and how do I fix it ?

Thanks

Yes, it is normal. Safe mode only loads enough hardware drivers to run basic features of the OS, so fancy things like GUI animation are not supported. No, there's nothing you can do about it, other than not use Safe Mode.

Using safe mode, Windows use a generic graphic card driver. That's why you see the whole thing slow.
