Preferred Solution: Jerky dvd

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am sure someone will know this one.I have a pentium 111 700 processor with 512mb of ram but on trying to play a dvd film it runs very slow and in snatches, both sound and vision.My graphics card is Nvidia tnt 32mb. I have visited the MS website to download the correct updated driver but it is still the same. I am running windows XP.Robert Phillipart.

Hi,My computer has been irritating me for months with laggy typing, when I close programs they do not disappear from the bottom bar quickly, when I try to play Spider Solitaire, the cards deal and move jerkily.I scan with NOD32 daily (NOD32 is updated daily). I used to run a paid up version of Counter Spy but have removed it because I don't like the program. I also run a paid up version of The Ultimate Trouble Shooter (like SiSoft Sandra) but can discern nothing in the process descriptions that looks out of place.I followed the Hijackthis routine to the letter and saved the log which I am posting. I didn't post it at the time as I have never used a forum before and got a little nervous about it all....*sigh*After I did the Grinler/Hijackthis routine, the computer ran well but now it has gone bad again so I have to do something to preserve my sanity.I did install Zone Alarm but have not used it for a couple of weeks as I never seem to be able to manage personal firewalls very well. While I was running Zone Alarm the computer was fine and now it is not so I guess that tells me something.Anyway, this is my HijackThis log file from a couple of weeks ago. I have compared all the numbers to the numbers in the HijackThis tutorial and cannot see anything suspicious. Maybe somebody else can help.

Question: Jerky DVD

Hi,I have an older eMachine with 256M RAM (Maxed out) running Win2K Pro.  I used to be able to play DVD movies on it using InterActual player. Awhile ago I did a system clean up, reformated the HD and reinstalled a freash Win2K on it. Ever since then, I can't play DVD on it any more. Besides from reinstalled OS and PowerDVD, hardware wise it's the same as before. I know this old dog can handle DVD since it was playing fine before. I just don't understand why it doesn't do it any more. :-? What causes the DVD to play jerky? Did I miss some configuration?MacPC

Answer:Jerky DVD

So, you used InterActual player before the OS reinstall and now you're using PowerDVD, right?  Can you reinstall InterActual and try it again?  Do you have your resolution and other display settings (monitor refresh rate, color, etc.) set the same as before the OS reinstall?  Are you usng the same video driver now as before the OS reinstall?How does the rest of your new software configuration compare to the old?  Same anti-virus?  Same firewall?  Same programs running in the background?  Etc.?Have you run Disk Cleanup since your OS reinstall?  You may have a lot of files in your Temp folder; might help to clean it out.

Question: Jerky DVD

Hi,I have an older eMachine running Win2K pro. It has 256M of ram. It was playing DVD movie nicely for the longest time using Power DVD. Somehow, I don't know what I did, I think it was after I did a fresh reinstallation of Win 2K, it started playing very jerky    Does anyone know why?Thanks

Answer:Jerky DVD

Did you install the latest video driver after the fresh installation of Win 2K?  Does Device Manager indicate any problems?  Run dxdiag (Start, Run, and enter dxdiag), select the Display tab, and run the tests.  Any problems indicated there?

Question: Jerky playback?

Hi all,

I get this intermittent problem with MCE when watching recorded programs. The playback will become "jerky" and quite often the sound will be normal.

I've tried reformatting but I still get the problem. I've got the latest graphics cards drivers and codecs.

Does anyone have any ideas?



Answer:Jerky playback?

Have you checked your hardware to make sure that all is running well? What about your Reliability and Performance reports? Is it possible another program starts running in the background (for example, something that is network intensive, as for some odd reason the new UI doesn't like necessarily mixing network activity and sound activity)?

Question: Jerky Monitor

Hi.I'm not sure where to look for the answer to this so I'll just post it.  I have a compaq FP5315 monitor.  When playing games or watching internet TV, a lot of the time the image is rather jerky, rather like someone is pressing a pause button on and off very quickly.Anyone know why this could be?  I'm guessing it could be something to do with the video card, but I don't know enough about it to work it out really.I'd appreciate any help on this subject - thanks, guys.

Question: Jerky & Slow

My PC (Acer) suddenly started to run slowly and very jerky. This happened yesterday morning after I started it up (I had shut it down the night before).
When typing there is a noticeable delay between hitting a letter and it appearing on screen. Scrolling is very jerky with pauses in all browsers and offline as well. Any program or picture that is opened also opens in stages (jerks) instead of all at once. Microsoft saves all drivers are up to date.

I'm running windows 7.

Question: suddenly jerky

Hi All,

I have a dell inspiron 1720 which runs and NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT.

I've been playing call of duty 4 on it, and it's been working fine. But recently, its been jurking every few seconds, which is very anoying and spoiling game experience.

Any thoughts on what might be causing this? is hardrive of CPU a factor? do new updates from windows cause problems?


Answer:suddenly jerky

any background work will affect performance, i suggest you disable anything that runs automatically in the background, ie/ automatic updates(set them to notify me) and/or antivirus that auto scans at a certain time.

Question: Jerky Dvd Play

Yesterday when my daughter tried to play a dvd the sound and video were all jerky, I know it was working ok up to about 2 weeks ago, and as far as I know i have not changed any settings. One thing I did notice was that there was an icon for ffdshow on the far right of the taskbar, I do not remember installing this and it would not allow me to close it. When i now put a disc in the drive the listing under my computer just stays as DVD-RW Drive (D:) whereas it used to change to show what disc was in there and I cannot get the drive to auto play at all, even to get audio cd's to play i have to clock on the drive in my computer and click on the track I want to play. Any help and suggestions appreciated.
I am running xp home sp2 on an evesham xp1800 pc with 768Mb ram and the drive is a TSST corp TS-H552U DVD-RW. I have followed the troubleshooting guide, I have run nero drive test, I have uninstalled and re-installed the device but it is still the same.
I can play video that is on my hard drive with no problems.

Hi. Now, i'm not going to bore you with some lame sob story or anything. I'm just going to give you the straight facts. I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 6000d. the problem is that my dad is a jerk. okay, i can't resist, here comes the sob story. I'm eighteen. My dad is a fifty-year-old four-year-old. when he first gave me the computer i was thrilled. this was the first time that i had ever gotten a brand new computer. before that, i always got his old one when he got a new one. (granted this was okay because he always got top of the line, but his idea of the perfect computer was that of a business exec, small, light, and power conscious) When he gave it to me, however, he only needed one sentence to completely crush me. I wasn't going to be an administrator. I was devastated. Of course, he figured that i was going to install all sorts of games on my pc. not true. i have long since come to the conclusion that, if you are going to play video games on a PC, then you need to have one completely dedicated to gaming, which i don't. Now i have a 7 day trial for Keyhole PRO. for those of you who don't know what keyhole is, it is a program that provides access to the entire mapping industry. In other words, its like a spy satellite uplink only not live. It uses massive archives of both satellite imagery and high-altitude photography to render (in 3D sometimes) many major cities and popular tourist points. there are not many things that i want to install, but i ca...

Question: Jerky HD Video

I recently purchased a Gateway DX4200 series pc. Processor is a Phenom X4 9100e 1.8 ghz. 4 gb ram. I added a Sapphire HD HD3450 512mb DDR2 video card. I'm using a Acer 22" widescreen monitor. OS is Vista Home Premium 64. Right out of the box this pc was very sluggish loading screens, applications, etc. I purchased it with the intent of adding a tv tuner card and recording HD Video and watching it on the pc or streaming it to a 42" tv using a media extender. However all HD content I have found on the net is jerky or choppy when watching full screen. This includes Hulu, Fox, NBC, etc. This also applies to HD video that has been downloaded from NBC instead of just streaming from the web. After adding the video card it is no better. I mistakenly thought that shifting the video memory to a dedicated card instead of using the 128 mb shared video on board might improve this. My Vista perfomance scores are Processor 5.7, Memory 5.9, Graphics (desktop) 3.5, Gaming 4.0 and Hard drive in the 5's. After updating the video card I went to AMD and updated the drivers and ATI Catalyst. What can I do to make the video play smoothly? Also I'd like the entire system to move a little faster, loading programs, web pages, etc. I can watch NBC HD video full screen with none of the hesitation problems on a old HP pavilion with a Pentium 4 2.8 ghz processor, connected by wireless g, running Win XP. Is it the 1.8 ghz processor thats the problem?

Question: Jerky Computer

Hi,Over the last six months or so my PC has become a bit jerky and laggy. What I mean by this is when I sign in to my hotmail account to check my email or use a web page which is java based, or most commonly when i am using media player, the mouse is very jerky as opposed to moving smoothly accross the page. Im not really sure how to explain this, I hope it makes sense.Thank you

Answer:Jerky Computer

I would guess you are using a mouse with a Ball underneath. Take out the ball and clean off the little rollers inside the mouse, best done with something like a nail-file or small screwdriver. Make sure all three rollers inside are absolutely clear of gunk! Your mouse will then be like new!

Question: Jerky cut-scenes

Hi everyone

I recently had to buy a new display card. The motherboard's about 4 years old and has an AGP slot. It was a mission to FIND any AGP display cards, but I got hold of a FORSA GeForce 6600 after a lot of searching. I'd never heard of this brand (from Hong Kong) but it uses the Nvida chip which kimda redeemed it!

After I installed it, I found that an adventure I'm playing (Journey to the centre of the earth) is very jerky (stop start stop start....during the cut-scenes) It does this too with my fave motor racing game "le Mans 24 hours". Makes the car look like it's filled with kangaroo petrol.

I'm sure the store is going to say there's nothing wrong wih it, but I put this down to the display card. I'm open to correcvtion. This never happened woth my old card. Does any of you kind folk have any tweaks or walkaroimds to override this jerkiness and have it play smoothly? I've tried both games on a friend's computer and it is perfect - so it's not the games.

I've tried reducing the resolution right down to 600x800, reduced colour depth to 16 bit. I "thought" it may be a sound isssue because the sound jerks in tandem to the imagery. I lowered the sound accelerarttion, but that didn't help neither. Oh yes, I installed the latest drivers off Nvidia's website but it made no difference.

Question: Jerky TV reception

My WMC had been displaying normal TV reception until about two days ago. Now the picture and audio is very "jerky" as though it's coming in packets that are hesitating to be decoded. My reception on other TVs connected to the same system is normal.

Actually I've found the program to be a little quirky. It always opens in full screen and for some reason the cursor will not display on the blue screen. All I can do is hunt around until I highlight a button blindly. The remote starts it, but it seems I need to activate it twice to get it to finally tune to a station. Even if I close the screen in not full screen mode, it will always reopen in full screen.

Question: Display Jerky


I am having trouble with my display. When accessing the internet I have noticed that IE is jerk when scrolling. I have also seen it when using other applications like word and Acrobat.

Question: DVD display Jerky.

I have and old XP laptop loaded with Power DVD, presently region-set for American, because my wife has just brought a new, large album of DVDs from America. Each DVD has three short films on it, some of which play perfectly, some of which play well until half-way through and then become jerky, and others which are jerky all the way through. When I play other American DVDs which I have, they all play perfectly. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what may be wrong? I have heard recently of dual layer DVDs, and I know nothing about it If the DVDs were dual layer, would my lap top not be able to play them. Or is this irrelevant to my problem. Any ideas? Allan

Answer:DVD display Jerky.

Could simply be a matter of bad/damaged/poor media. If you have Nero do a 'Transfer Rate' test with Nero CD-DVD Speed.

You want it to look like this (it can be a little little more jagged).

You can get for for free, but it may not work with an ASPI manager.

Get Nero's ASPI and put it in the same folder.

Hello and welcome to TSG.

If you go to Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager, you might see a yellow mark beside one or more of the entries and that signifies something hasn't yet found the right driver since you reinstalled. It may be graphics or mouse in your case. Right click on it and go to Properties then click on Update Driver. If you're connected to the Internet and have the right settings, the system should wander around your computer and the Net in search of a more appropriate driver. if it doesn't, please post back for some more detail as to how to track them down.

Question: Video jerky

I have a packard bell system running the following:
Vista home premium
AMD Phenom 8450 Triple-core processor
3GB Ram
Nvidia GeForce 8400 (I think because since a driver update this now reports as a 9200)

I did a system restore to go back to factory settings and had a failed reinstall so I used the rescue discs I originally created when I bought the system. This went fine but the video driver install failed to so I installed the updated drivers from Nvidias site. All good and I could get the resolution to optimum.

What went wrong is that with Aero enabled I have noticed that the video output is jerky and often when cycling down a start menu list the reaction to the cursor hover is delayed.

My windows experience Index score is 3.8 even here are the full scores:

Processor 5.3
Memory (RAM) 3.00 GB 5.9
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9200 3.8
Gaming graphics 1407 MB Total available graphics memory 4.5
Primary hard disk 209GB Free (286GB Total) 5.9

Any help would be appreciated

So you sure the driver installed correctly? In Device Manger does it show it with a yellow explanation mark?

Question: Jerky games

My first question so if it is in the wrong place or just plain dumb please inform me. Also I don't explain myself so well anymore. Almost 8 decades have eroded my typing, thinking and perception.

Q. Lately I cannot really use Microsoft solitaire games because the pointer jerks around, the cards over shuffle, sometimes don't go where they are directed. This is not limited to silly games, but scrolling has become jerky or just plain "won't". I listed my computer world for reference. Hope it helps.

Question: Jerky Scrolling

Can anyone help with my scrolling problem in Firefox 1.0.6? Instead of smoothly scrolling as I arrow down or use the mouse wheel, the screen moves in jumps as if it's refreshing each view (or something!) I only have this problem with the browser. Everything else scrolls OK. I did a HijackThis scan and here is the result:

Edit by bjgarrick: Unrequested, Inline HJT log removed!
Can anyone see what might be gumming up the works? Any help would be appreciated - it's driving me nuts!

Question: Slow & jerky IE6

IE has been really slow & jerky recently: scrolling with the mouse wheel jerks around rather than being smooth, when I pass over a link it takes a second for it to highlight (like it's lagged), it takes another second or two after clicking on a link for it to actually register, highlighting text takes a second until the highlight actually shows up and then it takes another second when I click elsewhere to unhighlight a selection, typing on a page (forms, this message, etc.) hiccups so that I'm still typing but it doesn't register until a second or two later, buttons on a page (like "Save Changes" down on this page) take a second to register, and pages with a lot of images scroll ridiculously slowly. Unless I'm mistaken, this seemed to coincide with my move into a new apartment and cable Internet. Before we had DSL at the house where I was and I never had this problem.

I've tried running Norton, checking for viruses, defragging, getting all the latest windows updates, and nothing seems to make a difference: there's still a terrible lag in the activities I mentioned above. What could it be? I've tried testing it on a loaded webpage while the computer's disconnected (physically) from the Internet and it's still jerky, so I don't think it's the connection itself. As far as I can tell the rest of Windows is working fine... Sifting through directories in My Computer and Explorer seem to scroll fine.

Answer:Slow & jerky IE6


My sympathies.

About a thousand possibilities run through my mind, and you're on the way to most of them way ahead of me:

Get out the screwdrivers, open 'er up, and check to make sure that all cards and cables are securely seated since the move.

If you have Aida32, run it and read it, especially on memory.

But the most interesting of the "usual suspects" that comes to mind is your network settings involved in the switch from DSL to cable modem. There should be significant differences in settings for the two, and since you seem to have your problems ONLY when on the Net (and thus ONLY when you're using your cable actively), I'd look to those settings.

There are a number of sites available that will help you figure the right re-sets for yourself if you're comfy with regediting and such, or they'll offer you free or cheap sware that will give you a one-size-fits-most solution for your type of hookup to the Net. Speedguide is one of the best, I think. Try it. Everything you do to get a better response on the Net is reversable.

Question: Jerky DVD Playback

I have an external USB 2.0 Freecom Classic DVD+/-RW which I run on a desktop through a USB 1.1 connection with Windows 2000, P4 1.5Ghz with 256Mb RAM, Nvidia TNT64 32mb Graphics Card and Realtek AC97 Soundcard.Using the free RoxioDVD player bundled the playback is always jerky (sound and video). When I first got the player I played a DVD and everything seemed fine. I have connected to my laptop running XP and USB 2.0 with P4 2.8Ghz 512Mb RAM and integrated graphics and sound card. The DVD playback with the same software runs fine on this although I have just run it again and looked at the Task Manager which even on the laptop was showing between 90-100% CPU usage!Is this a software problem or hardware issue? I flashed the firmware on the Freecom Classic and had to return it for replacement, so would hope to find a solution that did not involve updating the firmware. The only other thing I can think of is that I connect via USB 1.1 but I don't think this is the real issue.I have tried the Freecom Tech support with poor response i.e none so far!!

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for my problem but I figured I'd start here.

The problem I'm having is that after a day or so of use my computer starts to lag/stutter in certain programs. The first indication my system has gone crappy is my real media files stutter during playback, getting worse the longer my PC is kept on. Next I noticed that certain video games like X3 and Crysis started doing the same thing. Restarting my computer fixes the problem but this is far from an optimal solution.

Originally I'd thought bad video codecs in real media but I can't explain why only 2 of the 6 games I've got on here stutter. Weird, at least to me, is that all of my other forms of video media work fine as do the rest of my games.

Any ideas would be great or even just an idea where this question would be better served, if not here.

Answer:Xp Slow And Jerky Somebody Please HELP!

If I understand what you have said you 1st installed WIN 98 and then installed the XP upgrade. OK, if so, you do not have to install WIN 98. Backup any files you may need to floppy - CD, etc. You need both the WIN 98 & XP Upgrade discs. Put the XP Upgrade in and reboot system. Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from CD. It has been a awhile since I installed an upgrade but follow the prompts. At some point, if you don't reformat the drive, it well detect the WIN 98 OS and ask if you want to over right it. You do! You should be prompted about formating you hard drive. I would go with the FULL format to NTFS. Along the way you will be prompted to insert your WIN 98 CD. M$ just wants to check that you do have a previous WIN OS that is eligible for the upgrade. WIN 98 is. All it does is check the CD then it should tell you to take it out and put the XP Update CD back in. Kick back and enjoy the ride. I probably don't have the exact sequence listed but if you ran the upgrade before you know how to follow the prompts. Bottom line--you don't need to install WIN 98 at all!!!

Good Luck

Question: Jerky MP4 playback

I own a Toshiba Gigashot HD camcorder (a brilliant camcorder) and I have been recording video in 1280◊720 MPEG-4 format.

However, when I playback any video on my computer it is very choppy and jerky. It skips irregularly every couple of seconds or so.

It is jerky if I play it on QuickTime or VLC but if I play it on "PIXELA ImageMixer 3 for Toshiba" there is no jerkiness.

This isn't a good solution though because this is an editing program and it isn't paticularly appropriate for playback of videos.

Can anyone explain why the playback of my videos could be like this?

Question: Jerky DVD playback

I have a problem on an old computer running XP Pro and Power DVD 4. The computer is a P2 450 with 256M, Voodoo3 16M graphics card and Sound Blaster 128 sound card. The video stream is jerky. On looking at Windows Task Manager Performance it shows CPU usage at 100%. I have DMA enabled on both Primary and Secondary IDE channels. The hard disc is freshly formatted under NTFS and the only thing running which takes resources is the wireless LAN adapter. If that is disabled the video improves slightly and CPU usage hovers between 90 to 100%. If I remove the sound card and have the LAN disabled, then I get smooth video with CPU usage down to about 60 to 70%. I have tried swapping the DVD drive from Secondary Master to Primary Slave.I have a lesser computer, with the same configuration, Windows XP Pro, a P2 350 with 128M with an ATI 32M graphics card, same sound card, same wireless LAN adapter, and it runs Power DVD 4 perfectly showing CPU usage hovering between 50 to 60%. I have swapped the graphics cards over, the RAM, the Pentium processors, the DVD drives, and still cannot get the DVD to run smoothly on the higher spec computer. I have dropped the screen resolution from a normal 1024 x 768, 32 bit colour, 75hz refresh, down to 800 x 600, 16 bit colour, 60hz refresh, and still poor video. The hard discs are identical.

I would have thought it must be to do with the software environment, after all you have tried with the hardware. Have you gone through and disabled every piece of software you can think of?Also, have you got the DVD drive set to DMA on both systems, and have you got the Via 4-in-1 drivers up to revision? - these make big difference to IDE performance. Have you got the DVD on a seperate IDE channel to the main HDD?

I don't think it's a lack of ram, because it happens all the time...even after a fresh boot.Click to expand...

I'm not sure what this means. You always have the same amount of RAM, freshly booted or running for months at a time ;-).

This is from a review of that card. Not exactly "stellar" in it's performance:

"Overall, the Xtasy GeForce4 MX 420 isn't a stellar performer, though it's fast enough for common business applications and for light-duty game playing. In most of our tests, it couldn't reach 60 frames per second, even at 1024 by 768 resolution using 16-bit color, our lowest test resolution and color depth. Frame rates dropped considerably--by about 80 percent, on average--when testing the board's mettle at the more demanding resolution of 1600 by 1280 with 32-bit color, making games virtually unplayable. The lukewarm performance may be partially attributed to its 64MB of SDRAM--all of the other cards we tested at the same time came equipped with faster DDR SDRAM."

Question: Jerky streaming

During web streaming often the CPU is at 100% and can't keep up, causing pauses of the steam. I'm on AT&T DSL and memory usage is no where near full. Shouldn't my CPU be able to handle handle this? Thanks.

I hope someone can help me with this problem. My computer had been running really slowly, so I decided to re-install the whole lot.

I have everything back up running, but now when I am in my web browser (ie) and I use the scroll button on my mouse (or drag the side bar to move the page up or down) the page moves but it is moving really really jerkily? (kind of like reading pdf files on a slow computer!) It never used to do this before the re-install, even when it was running slowly.

Can anyone think up a reason why? When I get home tonight I am going to try and download firefox and see if it is a explorer thing, but otherwise I'm stuck for ideas.

Can anyone help?


Answer:After re-install web browser is jerky!

Firstly, have you reinstalled the video drivers? Reinstalling Windows will have wiped them.
If not the "default" Windows ones will be less than optimum.

Secondly make sure "use smooth scrolling" is enabled in IE (Tools-Internet Options-Advanced)

Is may be just me but scrolling up and down through posts in this forum seems slow and jerky compared to eight forums.

If I press the arrow keys to scroll up and down then it scrolls a bit, pauses for a split second and then carries on a bit more before pausing again. Is this just me or is it some design to make it work better on phones or something?

I tried different themes but it is the same.

Answer:Scrolling seems slow and jerky

It may be specific to your system. I don't have this problem. Try another browser.

Not sure if this is the right forum or not, but when using iTunes to play music, sometimes my computer will suddenly get very slow and the song I'm playing will start sounding all wacky, suddenly as if in slow motion, just sounds very strange. It last maybe a second or 2. I tried a little test where I watched the CPU Usage % meter, and it shot all the way up from maybe 50% to 100% whenever the audio slows down like that.

I recently defragged my hard drive, have checked for spyware/viruses, have about 3.2 gigs free on my HD, which is plenty of room for the swap file.

My computer is a Dell laptop 1.1ghz with 256 MB of RAM. So it's not blazing fast, but should be fast enough to run iTunes with no problem. And yes, I have tried to not have 20 billion windows open on the screen. And I don't have a ridiculous amount of programs running in the background or anything Any other ideas?

Answer:Jerky, distorted audio

Have taskmanager open and watch for what takes up all those extra resources when it happens.

I'm noticing a weird annoyance when using the mousewheel to scroll in IE7. It jerks about 20 pixels every second for about 5 or 6 times. I think it has to do with the fact that I'm using a Logitech Wireless Mouse but I'm not sure. Has anyone else notice this problem and if so know of a way to fix it?

Answer:Jerky Scrolling when using Mousewheel in IE7

it maybe IE7 itself. it is still in BETA. may want to check the discussion boards on the following link. someone may have reported that type of problem.

It seems that whenever I play a YouTube video directly, from a link or something, it frequently stops and starts. Must be a buffer thing. However, my computer (Vista) has plenty of memory, uses ReadyBoost, and has a 2 gig processor.

If I download the video and run it from my computer, no problem.

What's happening here?

Answer:Why is YouTabe video jerky?

It's not really related to your computer specs. It can be an Internet speed or connection issue.

Also, do you have the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player?

I'm giving Edge a go on my desktop PC, however scrolling pages with the mouse wheel is headache inducing. When I scroll down a page, it snaps/jerks down, and isn't smooth like it is in Firefox; In Edge, the page 'clicks' down and stops in sync with each click of the scroll wheel rather than have the smooth 'momentum' effect you get when clicking and dragging the scroll bar.
It's a deal breaker for me, as when reading text, scrolling jumps down and I loose my place, and browsing around pages is jerky as heck.
I've changed mouse properties and reduced the scrolling from 3 to 1 line at a time, but it still jerks down, just in smaller increments.
I can't see any smooth scrolling plugins for Edge. Is this normal behaviour, or is there a setting I'm missing?

My computer is an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ with 1GB RAM. I have a Jetway N2GAP motherboard with an nvidia nForce2 integrated graphics processor. And I am running Windows XP SP1.

Sometimes when I am watching a DVD that has been backed up to my hard disk, every 20 seconds or so, the picture kind of seizes, and then speeds up to catch up with the audio. And when I am playing games, the screen also freezes for a second or two and then resumes.

What could be casuing the problem, and could anyone help me resolve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

I just posted a similar thread under Windows Media Center concerning the playback of recorded TV video. I triple boot Windows XP Pro 32 bit, Vista Home Premium 64 bit and now Windows 7 RC1 (build 7100). I have experimented with different graphics cards and different drivers. In Windows XP my playback is without fault. In Vista & Win 7 it jerks.
I also noticed today that an executable slide show had the same symptoms. Then I went to a folder with just pictures in it and tried to view them using the default Windows 7 picture viewer, and it was *way* slow loading each picture, showing the "loading" icon on each picture before it finally came up. I then booted back into XP and brought up the same folder in Windows Picture & Fax viewer. In XP you can thumb from one picture to the next almost immediately. These are 1.5 to 2 Mb files direct off my digital camera. Vista and Windows 7 display the same sluggishness. My Vista install was originally 32 bit. It was slow too.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Answer:Slow and Jerky Graphics

OK. I just downloaded the latest 64 bit NVidia drivers for Windows 7 and installed them. That *seems* to have taken care of the photo viewer problem. However, video playback is still jerky. No change noticed there at all. So far I've tried Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, and GOM. They all act identical.

Please help. I tried this under security but maybe it should have been here. I've check out several boards and seen problems close to mine but the fixes don't work. This started a couple months ago about the time I upgraded Netscape but I can't swear that has anything to do with it. I've always used Netscape because it runs faster for me. When I scroll it is either very slow or it stops for a few seconds and then jerks to catch up. Typing does the same thing. I will type several words before they all of a sudden show up on the screen. All this is happens about half the time. I've noticed even when I play Hoyle card games it sometimes is jerkly. I am mostly looking around Ebay so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I absolutely never open emails with attachments or click on anything in an email. I use Norton Systemworks, Norton Firewall and I've recently used AdAware and CWShredder. I had a tech person "tune up" my computer, rid of temp. files, defragged, antivirus, etc. My computer is only 1 1/2 yrs. old. Please help me and keep in mind I know more about the Internet than I do the computer itself. This has taken all the joy out of being on line.

Hi. I always had problems playing HD videos (i.e. 1280x720) and thought they'd be solved when I increased my RAM from 1Gb to 4Gb. Unfortunately, such videos are still a little jerky when played. Could the reason be my 'video card'? I'm not too sure about these things - would the card be built into the motherboard given that none of the slots on the back of the PC case have been used? Here's how the company who bult the PC described it:
Graphics Card 512MB GEFORCE 7300GS (256MB SMA) PCI Express + DVI + TV-OUT

And here's how it appears with Yamicsoft's 'Windows 7 Manager':

Video viewing with WMP and Real Player has become very jerky. At first I thought it was just streamed content, but it's the same with every video file I have - picture freezing and unfreezing every few seconds, but the sound is OK.

I downloaded the latest driver for my graphics controller (Intel 82852/82855) but when I try to install it, it says it cannot be installed on my computer.

Would anyone have any ideas? I'm running Windows XP Home, have plenty of disk space, have removed all unnecessary programs and done full virus and spyware checks.

I've been using the Satellite M30X for about two months now. On most games, 2D as well as 3D, I've noticed that shortly after starting, the following behavior starts to occur: about once per second, the game freezes for a split second.

I'm using DirectX 9.0c, Windows XP Service Pack 2 and the latest Omega drivers for the video card. Using those, I tried reducing the clock speed of the video card, but the problem persisted.

Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, how did you solve the problem?

Answer:Jerky graphics on M30X

Hi Kazaran,

I have the same problem with my P20 (nVIDIA GeForce FX Go5600). Everything is ok but if there are lots of details (e.g. lot of smoke by explosion) I have the same problem. I made same changes in game settings (fewer details) and now is much better.

Did you try to change some game settings?

With my Y500 and the latest drivers (320.49 --also tried with previous 320.14), when SLI is turned on, many games become jerky to the point of being unplayable. Examples: Arma II, Left for Dead II. When SLI is disabled, the games run fine though you certainly can't get near the performance you should be able to get from SLI. Any suggestions? 

Answer:Y500 SLI jerky in many games

Did you upgrade your power supply to the 170 W AC adapter? SLIs are prone to micro stuttering which makes games seem laggy even though the frame rate is high. That's just inherited in SLI or crossfire setup but even with micro stuttering it should still be playable You just have slight jerky movements not like slide show movements.
