Some times you can screw up your display setting and such and it will affect the mouse speed.

Even more RAM can give you more HP from your computer. 2 GB
Dual core being the next best thing, and Quad core even faster. Computer work on jobs as threads. Multi-threading is what makes it capable to be online with 12 different windows open. Checking your email and Downloading some music with no visible lag issues!
You seem very tech savvy and I would say get books on A+ and Net+ certifications. Even better ideas are Cisco (CCNA) certification and MCSE. Study, take the practice tests till you can answer them sleeping and register at certified testing facility and take test(s). CCNA is very hard and is not a Multiple choice test but a evolving test. Just my thought, I spent $24,000 and went to a Tech school and have a certificate, I am just saying your background gives you an advantage.

Sometimes this delay is a result of the video trying to catch up with the data involved. Just shooting from the hip, I would recommend turning off some of the bells and whistles that tend to slow down the video on windows computers. Try this to see if it matters: click Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Advanced tab, under the title Performance click Settings, then pick the radio button for best performance. Click OK on the buttons until all these windows are closed. Most of this unnecessary overhead will slow all but the best equipped machines. Also be sure you have all the latest drivers on this fresh installation. Hope this helps

Hard disk not proper work

You could try the built in scan and fix tools ( right click on your hard drive in my computer / properties / tools )
If you cant boot the computer normally, try safe mode ( F8 while booting)
If you cant start your computer at all, and you have no knowledge of computers, you will have to take it to a repair shop.
IF they need to replace your hard drive, you will loose everything on it, plus they may have to charge you to re install windows

External Usb Hard Drive Data Recovery

Have a external Hard drive? Does not power on or the computer does not find it? Do these steps below for your fix.

Folks I am going to demonstrate to you how to save your data on your failed external usb hard drive.

The Videos below will show you how to retrieve the hard drive out of a My book 1TB drive. This method can be used for all external hard drives as there all basically SATA drives.

1. You need a flat head screw driver.
2. You take the drive in your hand and you pry it open around the sides and back there are no screws on this drive.
3. Once you got it open you basically follow the steps below in the video and what you can do is put this hard drive inside of another case or directly into the computer.

The videos are kinda dark but you can basically see and hear what I am doing here folks.

When you follow my video's here you will have a fix as long as the drive is not crashed. Opening the drive up VOIDS the warranty for the drive so please if you have a warranty and care less about the data sent it back to the manufacture.

I hope you find these video's helpful

Cant reinstall windows because it sayd it cant find a hard drive

two things, check your jumper setting, if it is an IDE hard driver.
Second the computer usually won't recognize the Hard drive until it is formatted for the first time. Did the computer stop and say it could not find hard drive ? and you got F1 to continue, well if you did, just continue. Error 655D is a registry screw up, unplug your usb stuff if you can. remember your drivers aren't installed yet (usb requires drivers-once windows is reinstalling your get the drivers...good luck if you need any more help, just let us know

Hard drive not recognized in setup

Hi Rick

It seems like you have a faulty HDD which will not initialise properly as a result of internal defect. Have you tried shaking the drive, which sometimes settles the HDD. Try nudging it against your hand.

If this does not solve the problem you will require a new drive as repair may make it uneconomical.

Let us know if this helps. Good luck.

Hard drive apparently deceased

Technically any equivalent drive should work.
There are many drives available which should work in this laptop.

most laptops are 2.5 inch drives - only the height varies; rated as 1/8 height, 1/4 height or 1/2 height.

Remeber that you will need a way of re-installing your operating system once the hardware is fixed. You will need the recovery disk or original os disk provided with the laptop to make this operation go smoothly.

Dont remeber my password

If the password you forgot is the user password, reinstalling the operating system will help you. If the password you forgot is the bios password(one which should be entered before boot up), you could reset it by removing and resetting the button cell present in the mother board.
