Last April 2003, I purchased a new Sony Digital Studio Computer. It is 512 Ram with 120 GB Hard Drive. It runs
Have you tried turning the menu animation/shadows/flying baloney off? Does it still do this if you turn the effects off?
Sounds like a graphics driver problem to me. Try looking for an updated driver for your graphics adapter (maybe Windows Update has one?). If you can't find one you'll have to disable those new effects.
I looked in Windows Update for a graphics driver but did not see anything right off. I did go into the properties menu on the desktop. I turned off all the items shown, a total of six(6) choices on this effects screen. Boy, did my cursor speed up! It seemed twice as fast as before(has always been middle of fast & slow in mouse properties, left it there). It did give my screen(s) a primative look as no smooth font, no smooth scroll, etc. I played with it a bit and slowly added features back, one at a time. I believe it was/is the menu shadow item that was causing most of the trouble. The scroll feature really slowed the cursor down too. I added back the ones I really wanted to keep and not causing a problem. I kept 'drag' and 'smooth font' and turned off the rest. So far after a couple hours surfing, typing; no cursor stutter and no shadows have been left behind. Woohoo! I have fought this since I bought it, many times abandoning this desktop for days and weeks at a time for my laptop. Too both Chris'...you guys rock! As does this forum!
