I am running Office XP on Win2K (though I had the same problem with Office 2K from which I've just upgraded)
Word (and it's only Word, no other app, MS or otherwise) redraws the screen slowly from top to bottom whenever I switch into it or move around a doc using PgUp / Dn etc. This takes around 1.5 secs everytime. This may not sound a long time but it is when you're used to screens refreshing instantaneously and I end up pasting stuff into the wrong part of a doc, i.e. where the cursor is shown on the screen is not where it actually is as the screen refresh is several seconds behind.
The PC has 256 Ram and ATi RAGE XL AGP 2X graphics card.
I've experimented with every Word setting I can think of, to no avail. Perhaps this is not a Word/MS issue but a problem with the graphics card (and I know nothing about those).
I also thought it might have been the monitor which was a few years old, so I bought a new one (IIyama AS4611UT). No change.
Anyone have any ideas?
