- You use Windows Internet Explorer 8 to view a webpage that contains the following content:
- Content that is rendered by using the DirectDraw API. For example, content that includes certain add-ins that display animations. Or, content that includes elements that use certain visual effects (such as CSS filters or x-filter styles).
- Content that is frequently updated. For example, content that includes a layout that has several columns and elements (such as menus or hyperlinks) that are highlighted when you point to them.
- The computer is configured to switch between a high-performance GPU and a low-power GPU in certain situations. For example, the computer switches to a low-power GPU when the computer is running in a power-saving mode.
Note This issue typically occurs on computers that use hybrid graphics (such as portable computers). Computers that use hybrid graphics have two GPUs. One of the GPUs provides low power consumption, and the other GPU provides high graphics performance.
