Have you tried turning off AERO? Following on Micks path, click Themes, then
click in the Themes list box and select Windows Classic and see if thats
better for you. :)

Vista is using different drivers for your video card and your monitor than
XP. Check for updated drivers for both. The video card is the important one.
Do you know if you were using a generic monitor driver under XP or a model
specific driver? If the former, forget about it. If the latter, you might
want to check to see if Vista is using the model specific driver or just a
generic driver.
