Hey Steph, if this occurs only during the game then look for settings or options under the game menu and there should be an option to change the mouse speed. Also if you are running a game that requires a high processor it could be that your computer is just running slow because it cannot a process like that. If it occurs all the time then go to your control panel and under Hardware and Sounds click Mouse (if no Hardware and Sounds, just look for mouse settings). (PS. This is for Vista but I believe it should be the same for Windows XP and Windows 7). Under Mouse properties go to Pointer Options tab. There you should see a section called Motion and that is where you can change the pointer speed. I hope this helps Steph. Please send me a feedback if it does not. Good luck. - Joe.

SOURCE: SLOW MOTION

Toshiba laptops are notorious for coming with a bunch of useless software installed that will no doubt slow your machine... thats just my two cents...

Anyway, add to that, running Windows Vista, Anti-Virus software, and it only comes factory with 512mb of system memory, and you will have one slow running computer.

First thing I would suggest, is getting a system ram upgrade. It should support DDR2 and have two memory slots. DDR2 right now is fairly cheap. I would go for two 1gb sticks for a total of 2gb of ram.

If you aren't savvy about tackling this yourself, take it by your local computer shop or parts super store and get the ram upgrade, 2 gigabytes total. You will prob be alot happier with it's performance.

Deleting temporary files and directories This step increases hard disk space and reduces the time Windows takes to access the hard drive. It also resolves problems associated with spooling print jobs. Windows uses a TEMP directory to temporarily store files intended only for temporary use. Over time, these files can build up and cause problems. To delete these files, use the following set of steps depending upon the Windows version: Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP

  1. Close all open software.
  2. Select Start , Programs , Accessories , System Tools , and then Disk Cleanup .
  3. Place a check next to the types of files you want the Disk Cleanup utility to delete. Temporary files are safe to delete.
  4. Select OK
Deleting temporary files and directories

keep hitting y if it prompts ... it ll clean all the temp files from your computer .

SOURCE: My graphics card is fast at one point then slows down!

Make sure the driver for the notebook from the manufacturers website is installed, and not the video driver from Microsoft's Windows Update. After that, update Java, Adobe Flash and Adobe Shockwave. Finally, check for updates for DirectX (version 9.0C). Post back your results, please.

Beginner tips for F1 2010


On September 24 the formula of the first game for<b> Xbox 360</b> and <b>PS3 </b>came out in 2006, created by Codemasters. Since I had the game who played the career mode and online, until now, I prefer to play against real opponents, such as line speed racing. The career mode, I started this treatment and had 10 points for my first season when my team had 0 points, but the team did not renew my contract so he moved to Virgin Racing. The career mode is very good, but I was disappointed by the media interviews that seem to ask the same questions after each race. But overall a very good game and by far the best formula for a game created. To this end im going to give advice on how to win (or finish in the top 3) racing online.<br />

I just installed a Hunter five minute fan which says it is called the augusta. I have also installed several other hunter fans in my house through the years, and they seem to move extremely fast especially...


Speed is not a factor in moving air. You can move air with a little fan that runs real fast or you can move the same amount of air with a big fan that moves slow.

It is the pitch of the blades that moves air. Big blades with steep pitch moving slow are comparable to little blades with shallow pitch that move fast.

It seems to me someone is trying to baffel you with bull**** when they tell you CFM = watts or something similar.

The real question is, is the fan moving the air necessary to achieve the result you desire? If yes, speed is not really a factor.

Let me know if this helps you.

Power steering problem when moving slow or rpm drop


no it is the power steering pump. the pump is worn so at low rpm or low speeds it is real tough to steer. but when the rpm is picked up the steering gets easier.

Also check belt tension but at high rpm speeds the belt would slip and squel real loud. so i would point the problem to the power steering pump.

hope this fixs ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There should be a connect button on both the mouse and the receiver. Press the connect button on the receiver, then on the mouse. Sometimes you have to use a paper clip or a pen to push this button. This synchronizes the radio frequency being used.
