I am a first time poster on this forum. I recently installed Xubuntu 13.10 on my Dell 8200 desktop. I was previously running Windows XP with no performance problems at all. I decided to wipe XP and do a clean Xubuntu install. Since then, I’ve had nothing but problems.

  • It now runs way slower than XP.
  • Youtube videos won’t even begin to play.
  • Most previews of my document icons don’t show, and those that do, disappear when the mouse hovers over them.
  • On YouTube, items listed in a dropdown menu disappear when I hover the mouse over them.

My system summary is as follows:

Mainboard : Dell Computer Corporation Dimension 8200
Chipset : Intel i850
Processor : Intel Pentium 4 @ 1800 MHz
Physical Memory : 2048 MB (4 x 512 RDRAM )
