Having problems with your Advent Netbook ?
Slow running, constant 'not responding'
\015 I bought mine only a few days ago, and it seems to run insanely slowly. Everytime i want to go forward/back/open a new tab/window online it goes to 'not responding' for about a minute. The internet was always fine with my old laptop so i don't think it's that. It's just as slow opening any programme from destop as well. Any idea what's causing it so early?\015
Since your purchase just occurred, pack it up and return it to the store. It doesn't appear to be operating properly at all, and you certainly would not want to start to repair it yourself as that would void the warranty. Return it and get another one which makes you happy...afterall you will have it for a long time. Regards, Joe
