View Full Version : [ubuntu] i-webs feels very lagy *newb to Ubuntu

September 8th, 2009, 05:07 AM
So I just installed Ubuntu on my laptop, but I am learning and working the kinks out. Sometimes I get very very laggy while on the interwebs. I assumed it is because i cannot find a driver for my video card. (dell 1500 insperon) Intel GMA4500MHD video card. Are the drivers really out there and I'm missing them, or is the lag comming from something else.

Thanks in advance for help

Sounds like a flash problem; try using flashblock or noscript to disable flash where unneeded. You can also use adblock-plus. You can also try following this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1130582) tutorial but BE WARNED: IT MIGHT BREAK YOUR INSTALLATION. It may also be Firefox; Firefox is a ram eater and tends slow down if you have too many tabs. Try upgrading to Firefox 3.5 if you don't have it already.
