What graphics driver is this using? (run the test.exe program in 640x480
autodetect mode, it will display the driver name and description in the
middle of the screen). Also, could you check the scrolling function in
test.exe, and see if you can figure out exactly how it is going wrong?
At a guess, you'll find that it is out by a power of two (either
scrolling right and left by two pixels every time you press an arrow
key, or only scrolling on every other keypress). If you could let me
know which way the error is, and which driver it is using, that would
help a lot...
