Evening partygoers,

 Just did a clean install of XP Pro on a pc for my brother. I have installed all of the drivers that I know of. Its a Radeon, something something and the drivers were called "catalyst". Anyway, YouTube, video that I put on his pc and scrolling up and down on a web page there is a lagging or with the video it stutters. I am sure there is some simple driver that I am forgetting to install.

 Thank you in advance for your help.

When you did the Windows install, did you run the motherboard disc as well, to install the motherboard drivers ?  And if it is a separate video card, did you run the install disc for that ?


It sounds like a video driver problem. The other way to check is to find your way to 'Device Manager' and look for any components with a yellow question mark against them - this indicates a problem. You can get to the device manager either through 'Control Panel / System ( or Computer )' or by right clicking on the computer / system icon on the desk top if you have one.


If you do find you have missing drivers but don't have an install disk with on, you can normally get them from the manufacturer's web-site. Just make sure any drivers that you get this way are for XP and not Win 7 or 8 !
