I just installed Ubuntu 14.04 on a Dell laptop with 1.7Ghz Pentium M and 1Gbyte memory.
Graphics are Intel® 852GM/855GM x86/MMX/SSE2, OS type is 32bit.
The whole system is VERY slow. When I launch the applications manager, for example, I need to wait in order to see the letters I typed appear!
It is as if the CPU was overloaded and no memory available, but I only have Firefox running.
How can I make the system run smoother? It used to have Windows XP installed and it worked fine.
