    Hehe. Sorry I had to test what a user gets on the screen when they post a problem and about payment etc. Since I had earned 30+ points.

    I clicked on the payment option but fixya posted my question even before I paid. Sorry, I did not have an option to delete my own post. There should be such an option.

Here are some steps you can take to speed up your PC, in order of preference (if one step doesn't help, escalate to the next one):

  • Restart the PC and open just one program. See if it's faster. If so, run fewer programs at a time.
  • Scan for malware (viruses and spyware) - this one is first because it's generally a good practice for preventing other issues. Malware runs in the background and hog the computer's resources, which slows everything down.
  • Follow the steps in Microsoft's guide for speeding up your PC (be sure to back up your entire disk before defragmenting or repairing any disk errors).
  • Install more memory (RAM).
  • Upgrade to a larger hard drive or install a secondary one to which you can offload some files to free up space on the first one.

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.

Why does my cursor freezes it does it for about 20 minutes and starts again for abit

There could be a number of problems why this is happening, first try replacing the mouse itself, this may be the primary problem, second try defragmenting the harddrive to clean up the deleted file holes. If you have a system diagnostisc program run a test on the mouse to see if it gives you any errors. Also try updating the mouse driver of your manufactor. But I suggest investing in a new mouse. If this is a laptop then the mouse pad may be intermittenly causing you some problems, try using a external mouse like a USB type and see if the problem persists.

Is there a fix yet for the jumping cursor on acer notebooks? Other than work arounds such as turning off the touchpad?

just clean the lens of the mouse, if its a optical mouse.
If you have a rollerball-style mouse , clean the rollerball and rollers.
If even thats not working, then shut down the pc, unplug the mouse and connect it back again, and start the PC. This will work.

Thank You,

Continuous reloading of programs, cpu use up to 100%

hi, does the mouse move around the screen rapdily, while you are just using it normally? if so, it could be a driver fault for the mouse or something similar. this has happened to me before, and the way i solved it was updating the driver for the mouse. try doing that and see if it works.
