View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu working slow after diassembling/reassembling laptop

April 26th, 2010, 05:52 PM
I have Ubuntu 9.10 on HP Compaq Presario v6000. It's been working fine with a bit trouble lately... but now that I've disassembled it and reassembled it back (I wanted to fix a noise that has been reoccurring in the past months) it's working even more slowly. It mainly causes applications to open up superslow and freezing with the black-n-white screen.

Is there a way to test whether the problem is with Ubuntu or with something gone wrong during the disassembly/reassembly of the laptop?

I would suspect overheating.
Did you disturb the heatsink or fan?

is there any way to test if it's overheating? But no, didn't have much contact with the fan area since I didn't diassemble it that far...
