This is my first post on the forum, and im completely new to linux mint.
I have previously used linux ubuntu, which i have on the laptop i am using now, but i also had it on my pc tower, both of these worked fine. The problem started when i had to upgrade the version of ubuntu on my PC tower, when i ran the new version the internet run slow to almost a complete stop. So i chose to give linux mint a go hoping that it would have this problem.
I downloaded the linux mint version 14, 32 bit, just the normal version i think!. But i after i installed it i ran it on the tower pc, and tested it on the internet to find that it is running very slowly and sometimes goes to a complete stop. The other problem that was immediately apparent is that the screen resolution does not look clear, the text appears to have a kind of white halo around it, the whole thing looks awful.
At the moment i am using linux ubuntu on my laptop, and the internet speed is fine, so i know that theres nothing wrong with my router etc.
If i need to provide any other details im happy to do so, but i may need help in finding out how to provide those details.
I hope this is just a few tweaks, any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
