I have a B&W G3 400 w/ 128 M Ram. I used to be able to scroll through documents in Word or cells in Excel so fast it was difficult to stop on the right page. Now I scroll at a couple of lines per second. Anyone know what happened? I have lots of memory (20M) set to the applications.

I hate to tell you this, but when I had this problem, (which also included wavy lines) only a clean install fixed it.

Thanks for the post. I actually found out somewhere after the fact that when you install OpenGL 1.2.1 (or perhaps update any previous version of OpenGL??), which I did when I downloaded the Cro-Mag Rally Demo, that you have to reinstall the ATI video SW update 1.0. When I did this, my fast scrolling speed resumed. It did slow down again for some reason and I reistalled the update AGAIN and so far so good.
Thanks again.
