what power mode are you using.
I have found that even with balanced I find some jerkiness with displays.
I use on line casino game www.freeslots.com
and the wheels jerk sometimes.
switching to HIGH Performance the jerkiness goes away.
OMFG! You are DA MAN! I would never have thought that. THANK YOU BERRY BERRY

I am dual-booting XP Pro SP2 and Vista Ultimate on a P4 3.2 X86 with 2GB of
DDR and a 256 MB Nvidia Geforce 7600 GT video card. UAC is a non-issue, I
don't mind it, I would turn it off if I did. I find that for most things
performance is pretty comparable on the two OS's with this hardware. On the
plus side for XP, I find display a little more responsive, example, I play
Virtual Pool 3 and it is perfectly smooth on XP, but a little choppy with
Vista. Despite that I love the visual enhancements in Vista, they make it
worth the loss in video response. So sue me, I'm superficial. I am hoping
that some future display drivers solve my issue. I also have backup images,
but I don't keep them 100% up-to-date and don't like to bother restoring
