    How much RAM do you have?

    2 gb but it still should be faster than my old laptop which was a 400

    I strongly suggest posting your issue in the Laptop forum because you'll get help that deals with your particular problems.

    Vista is just slow dude. I have a friend who bought a new laptop. Same thing. Threw XP on there and back to performance! I don't care what people say thats just the way it is. Vista is a dog. Oh and if you have Norton or symantec anything on there remove it. That will also slow your system to a crawl. I suggest Avast as a free anti-virus replacement. AVG use to be my choice but it has gone the way of Vista. Shinny and Slow
