If it's an external mouse you are using with the slow dragging problem then it could be a problem with the mouse itself ,internal ,try to clean the pad with a moist cloth while laptop is off.
Also look in the mouse setting and change the pointer speed.
Also try a plain coloured mouse pad and not one with mixed colours.
Download the vga driver from here and reinstall it :

Cannot ee startup menu


Sometimes it gets minimized to just a single row of pixels. Try moving your mouse to the center of each screen edge in turn, and seeing if the mouse changes from the standard cursor to a sort of double-arrow cursor. If so, hold it there, click and hold the left mouse button, and drag away from the edge of the screen, letting go of the mouse button when you have the start bar where you want it.

The portion of the mouse right behind the two buttons slides back exposing the batteries. The snap action is quite strong so you have to push straight bak quite hard. A small screwdriver will help pushing back if youa re carefull

Press the link button on the receiver the indicator light should start blinking. Then within two seconds press the link button on the bottom of the mouse, the indicator light should quit blinking. After re-linking the devices move the mouse to see if it moves the cursor. If the cursor does not move, then move the mouse and see if the indicator light on the receiver blinks. If the device does not blink then try re-linking the devices again.
