    Okay I have just recently dual booted xp and windows 7 on the same machine, and I have been trying to scrounge up all the drivers for the xp side... and now that I have everything working well I used the update driver method in the device manager and everything was working fine, but now when I drag a window it leaves white... its slow redraw. Like when i drag and window from left to right on the desktop it will leave white... Hows do I fix this? after I installed the driver for the video card it worked find and didn't have this problem... I think... It was when I updated one of the system devices and it was named like "SM..." can't remember... but maybe I'm having another problem...

    System runs fine in windows 7.

    Hiya adgower.

    Obviously in XP: Re-install the mobo drivers making sure they`re the correct and up-to-date ones for your chipset and reboot.

    Now uninstall and re-install the correct GPU drivers and reboot.

    Once you`re back onto the desktop, right-click and go to Properties and then the Settings tab. Set the screen res to the required size, preferably 1280 x 1024 on a standard 4:3 screen. Apply and then click the Advanced button. Under the Monitor tab, set the refresh in the Monitor Settings drop-down to 72 or 75, whichever is available. Apply and close the box.
