It seems strange that only 3 out of 19 machines are affected. Any idea why the other 16 are not?

comment How to extend my file system partition?
Make sure sda3 is not mounted. That's usually what it means when you see "partition is in use" stuff. ...and do post a screenshot of Gparted. You can use any of the online services to do that.

Hi, can you add more info. Which step of the Testdisk recovery did not work? Copy/paste errors, if any. Post the output of sudo fdisk -l to show the current partitions, or a screenshot of the Disks utity. Please edit the question, and add the required info.

comment Ubuntu Version for Intel Core Duo
I doubt the freezes (and other problems) have anything to do with the CPU model. Anyway, there is no special Ubuntu just for CoreDuos.

What's there to "completely overhaul"? What exactly do you want changed apart from the backgroud?
