When I scroll using scroll bars with my mouse, the screen moves but is wavy and slow. It used to move steadily with the scroll bar, but for some reason it is now waving and slow. No settings have been changed, it just started happening by itself. [Using XP Home on HP Pavillion 525c]

Have you installed or removed any hardware or software, updated any drivers or done a Windows or other update recently?

Have you tried a different mouse or if this mouse you are using is an old roller ball type mouse have you cleaned your mouseballs lately? Sorry about the use of words but that is what it is called. A dirty mouse will cause this problem and also if the infra red is dirty it will cause slow movement. In both cases use alcohol to clean the surfaces.

We figured out the problem - our graphics card had come loose so we just pushed it back in securely.
