win7 Laptop gone slow - deleted Ubuntu portion the suspect?

2 posts in this topic

Ok, this is gonna get a little long, I wish that you ave enough time to read.

 

One day back in April or May, I decided to try out "this cool new OS" called Ubuntu, If I remember correctly, it was at 12.10 or something. I had it dual booted alongside Windows 7 for a while.

After that, I decided to just remove it. So I went onto Windows and deleted the Ubuntu files from there. BUT...

WHen I reboot, it still shows the OS chooser, but with WIndows 7 as the sole "option"

 

Could this be the reason myy lappy is slow? Like, the RAM is still divided?

First off, never do this. Ever. Well, almost ever. In this situation definitely never. It's poor form, messy, and can cause you a world of issues.

On to a solution for the problem. I would suggest using something like gParted to try and put the partition back in to one piece, and see if you notice a difference then.

Finally, RAM doesn't get divided as part of dual-booting. It is all used on the OS that you are using at the time.

EDIT: Removed the first sentence, it was uncalled for. My apologies, we all have to start learning somewhere. :)
