    Complete newbie with Ubuntu - first day. My Ubuntu is slow...need to diagnose

    just installed the latest 14.04 LTS -32 bit version. I feel there is some lag....it's not that fast. I am sure it needs tweaking, but i dont know how to diagnose the problems or fix them. Anyone can systematically show me what to do?

    I have an old computer

    Gateway MX 6437
    2 GB of RAM
