I did a fresh install of xubuntu 14.04, 64bit, on my Kingston (ssdNOW 300), and OS is running slowly, occasional "temporary" freezes.
Here is my hardware:
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 750 @ 2.67GHz, 1197.000 MHz
- FC Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3 motherboard
- G94 nVidia Geforce 9600 GT
- 4GB ram,
I am also using two monitors.
I also have dual boot option, with win8.1 being on physically separate disc.
When I login the whole screen is a bit noisy (random pixels, random colors), for a minute or so. Then the desktop loads and looks fine.
I expected xubuntu to run extremely fast, but it freezes sometimes even during simplest tasks like saving a gedit file, writing some text in the terminal. Applications very often "stop working properly" and want to close. After I click cancel, they continue to work ok... for some time and than freeze again. I suspected nVidia graphic card, installed drivers from "additional drivers", rebooted and well, the whole thing slowed down even more.
Did anybody have similar issues?
I am getting quite desperate here.
