View Full Version : [ubuntu] My Laptop Began Working Rather Slow

February 17th, 2010, 06:39 PM
I reinstalled Karmic after using it quite for a while due to a failure in disk mounting. I reinstalled every application I used before. But I found that my laptop began working rather slow after the reinstallation. Also Pidgin messenger, which worked perfectly before, no longer works perfect. As soon as I click on the "Buddy Ticker", it switches itself into "Not responding" state and prompts me to force quit if I try to exit the application. Other than this, everything is perfect.
I am not able to figure out the cause for such behaviour of my laptop. Can anyone help me figuring the problem?
Thanks in advance.

You should post some info about your hardware.
Outputs of top and df -h may also prove useful.
