My PC is running pretty quickly and pretty responsively. The only one problem it seems to have is with system alerts (Message boxes, not tool-tips). Often, yet not always, they are slow to draw. The box pops up and buttons slowly show up afterwords. It isn't slow to the point that I'm waiting, but slow to the point that you'd never miss seeing the way it slowly draws. First the box appers with blank buttons, then it loads in the text for those buttons. This doesn't happen everytime, but it is frequent.
I have tried reinstalling all system drivers from the mother-board manufacturer's website. This did not help. The only thing I can think of is it almost acts like it is out of graphical handles. However, it NEVER fails to draw, it's just slow. So I'm not too certain about that conclusion.
Does anyone know what could cause this (remember, the rest of my system is quick and responsive). Also, does anyone have an idea of where I could find a program that can monitor the amount of available graphical resources (such as drawing handles)?
Quick note about my PC:
I am NOT running a high-end PC. I have 2GB of ram and a celeron E3400 @ 2.66 GHz running Windows XP SP 3.
