I recently was given an Acer TravelMate 5320 from a family member. The start up is slow & it runs very slowly and will occasionally freeze wihle I am working on it both when I am online and offline. I'm looking for any advice to get to back to running fast and well.
Any help would be appreciated. Cheers
