    What GIS tool are you using? What data do you have open? This can very often be an issue due to heavy data. Try with some other smaller data and see if the problem continues. Commented Nov 19, 2014 at 7:16

    If you are using shapefiles, make sure they have valid spatial indexes. If not, redraw becomes significantly slower.

You might try disabling Hardware Acceleration. If not supported, having that enabled could be taxing on your machine. You can disable it by: Customize --> ArcMap Options --> Data View --> Hardware Acceleration
