My computer has been running very slowly. It seems like it takes five times as long to load anything (programs, web pages, etc.). It also takes far more time than normal to restart my computer (it even failed to reboot once, and I was forced to unplug and replug my computer to get it to start up).
Whenever I scroll down the page in any window (in IE, Word, Frontpage, or any other program, it does so slowly and there's this weird "ripple" or "wave" effect to the scrolling motion. It does this whether I use a window's scroll bar or my mouse's scroll wheel. Also, a similar problem happens whenever I drag a window across the screen.
Whenever I tried to fix the previous two problems, I started by consulting Window's Help & Support as well as several websites. My graphics card is Nvidia TNT2.
This text always appears:
Cannot Install this Hardware
There was a problem installing this hardware:
Nvidia RIVA TNT2 Pro graphics contoller
An error occurred during the installation of the device
The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request.
Every time I try unistalling and reinstalling the driver, the Hardware Wizard keeps saying the same thing as above, and the video controller's properties keep saying the same thing after each attempt to reinstall.
hpoefully you can help..
