    When I operate the scroll bar, instead of a smooth scroll down or up the page, the scrolling occurs in jerks, making the page appear to "ripple". I am using windows XP. In addition, when I watch DVDs the crarity is not so good. It has only just started happening. Any ideas?

    Does this happen to the entire screen or portions of the screen (like a horzontal line), or just with the scroll bars?

    Hi Houston and Friend.
    The screen is clear but when we watch DVDs we randomly get rapid white horizontal line across the screen which disappears again very quickly. There is no fault visible on the screen normally. When I scroll down the screen moves up in jerky ripples. I think it may be a graphics card or graphics software problem but I am not sure.
