T400 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Hi,

 

I have a strange problem with my laptop. I just installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS with gnome 3 shell, and it's acting strange. I can't even think of doing multitasking. If i try to install a program ( anything ) and talk on empathy or browse the net the system just freezez (but i can still move the cursor) for a couple of seconds and then it resumes, then it freezez again, and so on until the installation is done. 

 

Idk what is wrong...could it be because i installed ubuntu using wubi and a NTFS partition? Or is it a video card problem?

Re: T400 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

I'd check your hard drive for errors. Does the HDD light get stuck when it freezes?

Re: T400 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

The hdd light didn't froze at the same time with the system. So, it shouldn't be connected to this. I'm thinkin that it could be because of the formatting type?

You mentioned that you are using Gnome 3?Did you try unity or another environment for starters? Gnome is in my opinion is not a stable option at all..But it might just be me.


I tried to Gnome3 on 2 or 3 notebooks of mine,it woudnt run well

Try switching to Unity 2D mode.
