    I reinstalled my OS just recently because I had a problem with my display adapter. It said on hardware under display adapter that my graphics card "cannot start (code 10). So I reinstalled my OS cause it was recommended. I still have the same problem. I installed the latest driver from dell support.com

    I have a dell inspiron 5160 running windows xp home edition
    geforce fx go5200 graphics card

    I have a choppy scroll and my background on anything is kinda... I dunno scratchy, low quality. Any suggestions?

    Solved, I dont exactly know how I did this word by word. But if anybody if having this problem right click on ur desktop and go to properties, go to settings and just kind of play around with the settings see what u can do until it starts to run ok.
