My system is an HP Pavilion P6610f PC with an AMD Athlon II 635 Quad core. I have 4 GB DDR3 RAM. Graphics is ATI Radeon HD 4200.
At first I installed Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit about a month ago. Everything seemed a bit slow so I thought I had a RAM problem for I had read about RAM problems.
I did a clean install of 12.04 32 bit and things seemed a bit better but not much.
I have concluded that my problem is with my video/graphics chip set and or drivers.
I am not a gamer but this is just about unusable in any format. I have no problem installing a video card if that would work but I have no idea what card to install. I have also played with installing drivers but now I have no idea what I have done and what to do to fix it.
I am new to Ubuntu, though I can find my way to the terminal, I would need major help to get rid of what I might have done and proceed from there.
Is there any hope?
