Release 12.10 (quantal) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.5.0-17-generic
Memory: 3.9 GiB
Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU P8600 @ 2.40GHz × 2
I'm just installed Ubuntu for the first time as a dual boot on what was my Vista machine.
It's running very slow and I don't seem to be able identify the problem. There is plenty of disc space (I allocated 18gb initially). Memory doesn't seem to be maxing out - it's running about 50% usage and the CPU's don't seem to be under too much pressure.
Even swapping between applications with Chrome / Firefox is causing it to grind, And if I am doing anything disc intensive like copying out files across my home network it's greying out all the time.
I'd appreciate any advice you might have! Should I move to 32 bit? Any other options?
