Slow Cursor Speed

  robm1 17:31 29 Jul 2006

I have a fairly new HP laptop. The cursor moves only very slowly when I try to move it around on a Word document. There is a slight delay before the cursor moves. A work colleague has the same laptop & the cursor moves around a lot quicker on his machine. I have altered the blink rate of the cursor but it makes no difference to the movement speed. The cursor's speed is much quicker in Excel

Has this only just started happening? Was it like this when you first aquired the laptop? Has this begun happening since you installed a new application? Are you using a mouse or the touchpad? Have you mad sure you have the latest drivers? Questions questions questions!

Hard to remember, but I think the speed has been the same since day one. I usually use both the touchpad and a mouse. I sometimes press CRTL and the arrow keys for speed but it's a nuisance. Thamks for the idea about the drivers; I'll check.
