    Hi, welcome to the fora.
    First: Are you sure that you want to continue with 12.10 which is only supported four months more?

    Better to do a clean install of the version you want.
    For strong hardware the two options are Ubuntu 12.04.3 and 13.10. Weak ones are happier with Lubuntu 13.10.
