I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 64. The HD was clean and nothing was on it when I did the install. I have Windows 7 installed on another drive and it runs smooth. The problem I'm having is it is running very slow, freezing on me and taking a few minutes to load. I had 12.04 on the same comp and it ran fine.

Memory -2.0 GiB

Processor - AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3700+

Disk - 115.9 GB

Graphics - gforce 7900gt 256bit nvidia

I also lost my side and top bar. – Tom May 23 '13 at 4:19

You may need to activate property drivers (probably for the graphics card) install Additional Drivers from Ubuntu software center and then activate the recommended driver.
