So I have installed Elementary OS hearing how beautiful and lightweight it is. I'll agree it is very good looking but it's too slow in my computer. I'm pretty sure I have installed all my drivers properly.

My last OS was Windows 10, it was so fast. Chrome wouldn't take more than 3 seconds to launch, but it takes atleast 20-30 seconds for Elementary OS. It takes about 3-5 minutes before a CS:GO match can start for me. Games run well though. Freezing is another problem for me. It freezes outta nowhere and it's very fraustating. I atleast need to wait a minute for that. Opening terminal is also preferably slow. I did not install Elementary OS for that. Any possible reason why is this happening and how can I solve this problem?

Specs: i3-3220, 4gb ram, R7-240, H61m Motherboard.

  • Open a terminal and execute w, then lscpu |grep "CPU MHz" and cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/scaling_driver. Update your question with the output. How did you install your graphics driver? What disk do you have? – Maccer Mar 15 '19 at 17:10
  • I'm facing the same problems here. Even though I have a Dell XPS13 i7, 16GB RAM. ElementaryOS 5.1 is running incredibly slow on my machine... gist.github.com/sergiomafra/8993e1fdeaab3d422de2938d06d4640f – Sérgio Mafra Dec 11 '19 at 3:23
