This question already has an answer here:
I finally installed Ubuntu 14.04 (from a boot CD) but everything seems so slow. It takes a few seconds to open a window or to close a window, like if everything was in slow motion. When I type a text in any field, specially from the launcher, the characters appear on the monitor much slower than I type them. I know I have little memory, but it is still too slow. I read about updating video drivers, but I don't know how to upgrade them as there no new "recommended" ones.
Here is what I have:
- Memory 985.0 MiB
- Intel® Pentium(R) M processor 1.70GHz
- Graphics VESA: Intel(r)852GM/852GME/855GM/855GME
- 32 bit OS
- 40G HDD The PC is a Inspiron 710m laptop.
Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks!
