Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My laptop is a Compaq nx6110 with 1 GB RAM.

Before Ubuntu, XP was originally installed on it and was not too slow. But after I installed Ubuntu 13.04 (replacing XP) it is too slow.

Even YouTube videos are not played continuously though the net speed is sufficient. Also the headset is not detected.

What can I do to fix this?

What amount of RAM do you have? –  Alvar Jun 25 '13 at 9:56

Try Lubuntu. 1 GB is not much RAM. See here –  Manuel Jun 25 '13 at 9:59

But your question states 1GB? –  Nanne Jun 25 '13 at 10:02
    
Take a look at my answer Here. Using Gnome classic made it even better. –  Mitch Jun 25 '13 at 10:36

Install Lubuntu. It's an official alternative version of Ubuntu that is designed for older PC's like yours.

@user169886 Yes. Everything that runs in Ubuntu runs in Lubuntu too. –  Jop Vernooij Jun 25 '13 at 10:13
    
Also Xubuntu should work reasonably well –  thom Jun 25 '13 at 13:39
    
And you should opt in the html5 trial on youtube. Flash is resource hungry.youtube.com/html5 –  Victor Oct 2 '13 at 15:12
