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.

My netbook is generally running very slow,what can I do to improve speed

To speedup your netbook follow these steps;
1. Remove if any apps in the 'startup' (like instant messaging, dictionary, world clock openoffice etc (just remove it from the startup folder) Make sure programs like these are not starting up when you boot up else your netbook will feel slow.
2. Be sure that you are running your spyware and virus scanners are working, updated, and have fully scanned your system. These malicious pieces of software can slow down a fast system. They will wreck the speed on your netbook if you aren't careful.
3. One upgrade that you can do to your system that is cheap and easy to do on your own is to add RAM. It's best to maximize your netbook's RAM for best performance.
4. Uninstall unwanted or heavy load softwares.
5. Don't have open programs that you aren't using minimized. If you aren't going to use a program, shut it off. Try to only have a few programs open at once.
6. Use cloud based applications. These are software that you can use that are being processed on a server versus your machine. This is a better way to multitask on your netbook.
7. Consider adding Linux or buying a Linux netbook versus a Windows netbook. Typically the Linux netbooks do run much faster as they are designed to take up less resources making your netbook run much faster.
8. Delete temp files.
9. Running heavy loaded softwares will make the battery hot, that way the battery life is shortened which causes a slow running netbook.
Hope this helps.

Your windows partition should have at least 1GB empty space. More is welcome. If not try to remove the files & transfer them onto another partition. It is recommended not to put your data files on the windows partition. Remove all the files on the desktop & dump them in a separate folder on a partition. Remove any screensaver/ themes with animation that you are using. Keeping files on the desktop slows the laptop. De-fragment your hard disk. Right click on hard disk partitions. Goto disk cleanup. Select the files which are unwanted. Delete temporary internet files, cookies, history accessible from the browser's options. After carrying out these procedures your netbook shall be fast. If not, check your physical memory& the memory shown in system properties. If it does not match then you need to change your affected memory module.

I want to reboot my netbook because its moving slow

If you mean a clean install as in reformat everything and begin from scratch, I'm sorry to tell you that's with netbook it's hard because the CD is not included with the computer.

If you happen to have an XP (for example) installation CD and an USB CD/DVD reader, then it's easy ! just insert the CD and follow the autorun.

If you don't have all these (which is probably the case) the simplest solution is cleaning yourself your computer. To do so : go to control panel and look for program and features (on Vista / 7) or Add/remove programs (on XP) and get rid of everything that you don't need. Then click on this link to download the free version of a cleanup program that takes care of your computer. It's quite easy, just install it and then hit the big care button and it should remove small files in your netbook that slows it down.

If it's still not fast enough you might want to find an expert in your area that can reboot it you.

Good luck :)

Check the click rate under mouse setting.

The default or the last owner's setting may be too slow/fast for you.

Can i slow down my mouse cursor

Open the Control Panel. Select "Printers and other Hardware". Select "Mouse".

(Note: If you open Control Panel and it is in Classic View, just double-click "Mouse".)

Select the Pointer Options tab. (The exact tab name may differ.)

There should be a slider button to adjust the speed of the mouse. Click OK.

Thanks for using Fixya.
