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 ) Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 Hard Disk : MAXTOR (80 GB) DVD-Rom Drive : SAMSUNG CDRW/DVD SM-308B Monitor Type : Dell Computer DELL E178FP - 17 inches Network Card : DM9102/A/AF,DM9801 Fast Ethernet Adapter Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.01.2600 DirectX : Version 0.0
