Re: Problem with MSWord

Hi George,

The only thing that I can think of that may help, is to alter the screen 
resolution and color depth within the display settings.  This will affect 
things right across a Windows session, so I prefer to leave this sort of 
thing to the last to try.  However, screen resolution and color depth can 
have an impact on the performance of the off screen model.
