    13.04 running slowly

    Hello

    I upgraded to 13.04 a few weeks ago and have noticed that my laptop has slowed down quite a lot.

    Please can you tell me what additional information I need to include for the problem to be diagnosed?

    TIA

    Gary
    I'm a PC and Linux is a better idea

    Re: 13.04 running slowly

    A good beginning is to run

    Code:
    sudo lshw > lshw.txt
    and post lshw.txt in CODE tags.
