Question about Computers & Internet
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.

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
Select Start , Programs , Accessories , Command
in the command prompt you ll see
You ll be on the root C: prompt like
type del *. temp/s
if it prompts for enter y to yes n to no
keep hitting y if it prompts ... it ll clean all the temp files from your computer .

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.
