Explorer browser image paints on screen while scrolling

Can someone please help me on a browser issue with Internet Explorer?  When scrolling, the image paints slowly.  Is there any way to eliminate or reduce the painting effect?

 

Thanks!

Re: Explorer browser image paints on screen while scrolling

sounds like its a video driver issue.  Does your laptop come with a dedicated graphics card or an integrated card?  Try running a system update and see if maybe your drivers need updating.

 

If I'm understanding you correctly, that soudns like what happens when you try to attach a monitor to an unrecognized video card on a PC, you get picture, but its quite hard to do anythign with.

Re: Explorer browser image paints on screen while scrolling

Thank you amace.  I ran a system update but it did not indicate that drivers needed updating.  I'm not using a monitor, just the laptop screen.  Here is the machine specs:   Product: ThinkPad T42 2378-R4U  .  I cannot tell if it's a dedicated graphics card or integrated card.  Can you help please?  Also, I thought the symptom was evident when using IE browser, but actually, it is evident when moving any windows around or attempting quick scrolling in a window.

 

Thanks!

I checked the Device Manager, and I see a yellow "?" icon for Video Controller (VGA Compatible).  Could that be the issue?

Re: Explorer browser image paints on screen while scrolling

TVSU is really letting us down on this one Smiley Sad  Per your device type, the specs are:

 

P M 725, 256MB RAM, 40GB 5400rpm HDD, 14.1 XGA(1024x768) TFT LCD, 32MB ATI Radeon 7500, 24x24x24x/8x CD-RW/DVD, Intel 802.11b/g wireless(MPCI), Modem(CDC), 1Gb Ethernet(LOM), UltraNav, Secure Chip, 6 cell Li-Ion battery, WinXP Pro

 

So over to the drivers, and get this one: Video driver (ATI Radeon, FireGL Series) for Windows 2000/XP - ThinkPad A31, A31p, R40, R40e, R50, R...

 

Install, rinse, repeat as necessary Smiley Happy

Re: Explorer browser image paints on screen while scrolling

Thank you!  The ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 seems to have solved the problem.  Scrolling is much sharper now.
