Scrolling is slow

If I have any sort of window open (be it firefox or Explorer or anything) and I need to scroll (Like, using my mouse wheel to scroll down the page) it will lag up real bad. It doesn't matter if I grab the scroll bar and drag it down or anything - it's just slow and laggy.

System specs:

Pentium D @ 3.4GHz
abit IP35-PRO mobo
Corsair HX-620W PSU
XFX GeForce 8800GT video card
2x1gb stick of Corsair XMS2-6400 (ddr2 800MHz 2.1v Dual channel)

This isn't a new build, and my PC has worked perfectly before. I think it might have something to do with me clearing my CMOS the other day. I was trying a friends Video Card (A Gainward 8800GT) to see if my computer would boot up with it in it, and it didn't. When I put my vid card back in, it would start up until I cleared my CMOS.

My first thought was that maybe the video drivers disappeared somehow - but i've been playing Crysis since. (Omg that game is incredible >_>).

Any help here? This is getting on my nerves so bad :)

Okay, it seems like the video drivers DID disappear. Somehow this happened between me turning my computer off last night, carting it back to my house, and turning it on.

I tried to start up Crysis and it was like "I don't recognize your video card!" So I checked dxdiag. Yeah, just reinstalled my drivers and it's all sweet.
