G netbook cursor moves way too fast but i find no way to slow it down. apparently the solution is not in the help file.


The touchpad is very small on this netbook, so the ratio between the finger movement and cursor movement has to be high in order to be able to move the cursor from one side of the screen to the opposite.

The cursor cannot be too slow, because you would have to glide the finger several times on the touchpad to move it across the whole screen.

However, the speed of the cursor can be adjusted in the mouse properties in Control Panel (Start->Settings->Control Panel->Mouse) in the Pointer Options tab. Experiment with different settings to find one that suits you.

With such small touchpad I would suggest forming a habit of rocking the finger on the touchpad to achieve better precision and control, instead of sliding it. Put a finger on the touchpad center and tilt it left/right, up/down - You'll see that the cursor can be controlled quite well this way. And if you need a larger movement, then it's enough to move the finger the normal way.

Good luck and please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped.

Erratic cursor


It happens with both? Sounds like it may be a driver or motherboard issue.

Check the HDD for errors with Checkdisk (Start -> Run -> cmd -> Ok -> chkdsk /f

Drfting cursor


This is a well known occurance with laptops and is not something you can fix. Occasionally the manufacturer will release a patch to try and help, but this is very rare.
