    Ubuntu 11.04 running very slow

    Hello,
    I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 by:

    1. Making a boot usb-drive using the downloads from the Ubuntu website and an 8gb drive.
    2. Booting from the usb-drive and using GParted to free 40gb from my Windows install.
    3. Rebooting and installing Ubuntu 11.04 from my usb-drive using the normal install process.

    The problem I'm having is that, when I boot from my usb-drive Ubuntu runs fast & smooth but, when I boot from the install on my hd it can hardly run Firefox (even with 1-2 tabs).

    Now I would have no problem booting from my usb every time, except that it seems I can't use things like Flash Player or Java. So...

    Is there a way to make my hard disk installation run as fast as the one on my usb-drive? My Windows XP install also runs very slow. Could this be a hardware issue? (something wrong with my hd?)

    Or, is there a way to achieve full usability when booting from my usb-drive? I only want to be able to use Firefox, Java and Adobe Flash/Shockwave.

    Hi, have you looked in additional drivers to see if you have a driver for you video card there? You will need to be connected to the internet first.
    Also type this command in a terminal
    Code:
    sudo lshw
    and post the outcome here by clicking on new reply and click # and paste the information between the brackets.

    Hi and welcome to the forums

    Could you go into disk manager (search it in the menu), select your disk and run a read only benchmark? Also run a smart test to see if it spots any errors. Post that info back in addition to your disk model.

    Edit: Could you tell us the specs on your machine?

    Well your system is powerful enough. Can you run the disk benchmark per the instructions in my earlier post? Make sure you are benchmarking the hard drive and not the usb drive.

    Re: Ubuntu 11.04 running very slow

    Hi, have you installed your driver for this card [GeForce 8400M GS]? If so nvidia manager and compiz both have a Sync to Vblank and they are usually both on bu default so you need to check out this link and do what it mentions.

    Re: Ubuntu 11.04 running very slow

    When I tried to inclass CompizConfig it said package dependencies could not be resolved. I am still using my usb install.

    Hi, you need to be on the system you are trying to fix to install ccsm. Also if you log out and click on your username go to the bottom of the screen and chosse ubuntu classic with no effects that will go a long ways toward finding out if it is compiz and nvidia.

    But I do not think you said if you installed your driver from additional driver for your video card?
