I have a "new" (straight out of the box) Toshiba Satellite A505-56980. It was purchase by a friend in 2009. But never used. The laptop meets my needs, with the following exceptions: It is slow to load Facebook. And I often receive "edge chat" delay messages in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Is this an issue of older soft/hard ware on the machine. Can it be resolved with an update of some kind. I'm using the Windows 7 operating system that came on the machine -- which I like. Thanks.
