I have just installed 12.04 LTS alongside my Windows 7 OS. I restarted my computer and loaded Ubuntu from the boot screen. The purple Ubuntu screen shows and goes away and the log-in screen appears. However, the system seems to be really slow. Mouse input is extremely lagged, although keyboard input is nominal. After I input my password, the system never logs in. The log in screen went away the first time I logged in, but it wouldn't do anything else, and all subsequent log-in attempts have resulted in nothing happening. In all accounts, the cursor would still move but was still very lagged.
My system specs are as follows:
