I have a DELL INSPIRON 15R Laptop with Intel core i5 processor, 500GB HDD, 4GB RAM, & 1GB dedicated AMD Graphics. I installed Ubuntu 11.10 64 Bit. But it is very slow in my system. Actually the windows which is pre-installeed Boot up faster than this one. I installed Ubuntu by seeing its speed in one of my friends system which lags in processor,memory,no graphics. But it works fine for him,he uses a lower version of Ubuntu. Why this in me ??

Is this this problem is solved in 12.04 ?

I can't place a comment below your question because my reputation is too low. Could you place a screenshot of your partition table in GParted? If you haven't installed it yet:

  • Open terminal
  • Type in: sudo apt-get install gparted
  • Make sure that the you see the table of the using HDD and take a screenshot.
