I have no idea what's going on but my eSATA external drive is working a lot slower since I bought this laptop. I used to have the Express Card to eSATA adapter on my T60 but this Laptop doesn't have it so I am using PCMCIA to eSATA adapter and it is working extremely slow... does anyone have any solution for it?

If you already have another version of windows (like on a CD) you can format the hard drive and install that. Then you have to go to the Acer website and download all the drivers that specifically go with the hardware on the Acer. For instance when you first format the drive and install a version of windows the display will just use a standard microsoft driver; the acer website has the right display driver, etc.
If what you are talking about are external drives for laptops, then you have a lot of options. First off the option would be USB external drives, like say a flash drive it could be 4GB, 8GB, 16GB or 32GB. That's the easiest cheapest option. Another one is an external DVDRW drive or a BDRW drive as the media is cheap and you can buy a lot of it if needed. The other one is using drives that plugin through the PCMCIA or Cardbus. Finally, I can think of the internet, like an online drive like google drive. Have a great day, good luck.
Primary respones to fix your slow netbook: 1. Clean all Temporary Internet Files 2. Clean the registry. 3. Remove malware. 4. Transfer all unnecessay downloads to an external device. External hard drives are cheap....available for less than $100. The more files you have on the netbook, the slower it runs.
From what you describe, the issue only occurs when the system has not been used for a while. My impression is that the hard disk drive is slow to come up to speed when cold, and this may require a couple of reboots for the drive to get up to speed. Once booted for the day, it will likely continue to work.
Eventually, the drive will get slower and slower and over time stop booting.
Recommendation: Back up any important data and replace the hard drive.
Booting from CDROM might be the easiest way to have the OS installed. If the BIOS supports booting with USB flash drive, you can use a bootable OS USB flash drive. Making one bootable USB flash drive may be a little complicated if you don't have a CD of the operating system. http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-22_11-5928902.html http://www.bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm
Otherwise you have options of those miniSD card or PCMCIA cards with the size of your credit card which can be used as an extension of your input devices or storage devices if you can find those ports on your laptop. PCMCIA cards are developed through time and having quite a bit versions and standards. I suggest you to contact Dell to make sure that laptop support certain types of PCMCIA card. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/7999-2-boot-pcmcia
Unplug the PCMCIA card first. Then disable the onboard USB hub and
ports. Shutdown, plug in the PCMCIA card and reboot into Windows. Let
Windows detect the card and if necessary put in the driver CD for the
card. Had similar issues with my desktop PCI USB card. After disabling
the Onboard though it works perfectly fine now.
this problem might slow down if you have too many program installed in your EeePC, i have my own EeePC then I noticed if i put too many programs too dizzy to use it, maybe you don't have put any partition on your hard drive, repartition it. And then put only necessary programs to use. And also use Tuneup Utilities to remove and repair some unnecessary files inside your system. Good luck!
