Does this sound familiar to anyone?  SW 2006 runs fine andsnappy on my HP laptop.  But when I use the docking station(driving an HP LP2065 monitor) I get the following problem:

I can open three parts, drawings, assemblies, of any size, with noproblem.  When I open a fourth window, the system getsincredibly sluggish.  But then if I tile or cascade thewindows, the problem goes away.  

This suggests to me that it's a video card problem but howdoes that explain the docking discrepancy?  Is there sometwo-way video information flowing through the docking connector? I'm stumped.

I'm using an ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 card with 512MB of memory.
