I do have a problem, so help is greatly appreciated:
Technically my above mentioned netbook has a 150 GB hard drive. It used to be full 4 months ago. Of course it booted slower than it did before (4 minutes to erstwhile 35 secs to 1.5 mintues). In January I freed about 25 GB of space. Everything is still so very slow. Btw, those 4 minutes include the time waiting until I can use my mouse. I am positive that it's not because of Ubuntu itself (since I'm always upgrading). What can I do that my netbook boots like it used to. My keyring screen appears after 10 mins, so want deactivated as well. Please don't tell that I have to buy a new netbook. It's three years old and hardly lets me down (besides the occasional overheating and what not).
I want to write my thesis on thing, but with 4 minutes of boot up time (the first two minutes the "black screen" with all the commands, then the home screen appears and I have to wait until I can use my mouse.), I might have to fall back upon my WIN laptop. Please, do not let this happen. I tried everything (that I knew), re-configuring the BIOS (didn't do jack), setting defaults in the BIOS (didn't do jack).
So, what to do ?
Please help !
