Fresh Install of fedora super slow


Hey guys I'm new to linux and just did a fresh install of fedora 25 on my HP 2000-2b19WM Notebook PC. Everything went fine but it is running super slow and has alot of lag. Now I know this isn't the best laptop but it should still be able to run a operating system. Im thinking it might be a issue with some drivers but im not sure.

Can anyone help me?!?

Thanks,

Thanks,
Step one is to NOT CROSS POST! You have the same problem in two postings, and that should not be.
Please decide on one, and kill the other. I suggest you close this one, as the other has useful information.

Second, Welcome to the Jungle! Glad to see you here and I hope we can help.

1.3GHz AMD E-300 Accelerated Processor

My experience is 1.3 GHZ single - dual - quad

they are all slow.

I would expect Fedora to be pretty laggy on that machine.

I have something close to that (E-450 with 2G and Radeon HD 6320) - runs fine. Has had Fedora (gnome 3) on it in the past, currently Mint Mate.
Testing machine only, so doesn't get a lot of use, but I don't recall any really slow issues. Has even had a fully encrypted CentOS 7 on it.

Perhaps the OP had better define what "Everything went fine but it is running super slow and has alot of lag" really means. Maybe some hard data to support that assertion.

Have you tried something like TinyCore Linux, or Puppy?

Welcome to the forums, PlatinumLinux! I am going to suggest a few options, in order from the simplest to the most drastic solution:

1. Keep your existing Fedora 25, but install the lightweight "LXDE" desktop environment. This will only take a few minutes (assuming you have a good internet connection) and might give you a boost to your performance. Complete instructions are here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LXDE

2. Replace Fedora with a different Linux distribution, that is designed for older hardware. There are several options. I personally like AntiX for very old hardware. http://antix.mepis.org/index.php?title=Main_Page

3. Recycle the HP and replace it with a more powerful computer that will give you the performance you want and need. You can buy a nice computer with Linux preinstalled from vendors like System76 or Dell.
