### Computer problems, please help!?

I am having trouble with my laptop. It is unusable because it takes 30 minutes to boot up, and when I installed Ubuntu, it took hours! Booting from CD is slow, everything. I've tried replacing the hard drive with a brand new SSD but that didn't help either... Please help me; as I need this laptop for school!

1 AnswerVideo & Online Games9 years ago### Got drunk, and I feel crappy + time lapse?

So last night, I went to a friends house who happened to have some wine, rum, vodka, etc.

I had about 8oz wine, 4 shots of rum and 6 shots of gin although I may have had up to 12 shots on an empty stomach. Afterwards, I eventually got really drunk (5'7, 120lbs, don't drink often) and my friend (he wasn't drunk) and I started blasting some music and headbanging wildly for about half an hour. As I walked home (more of a jog at first), I could tell I was really out of it, equalibrium going crazy. I got home, and I kind of hung out with my parents in the living room (I'm 16), trying to move as little as possible so they wouldn't notice anything. I went to bed and laid there, feeling really odd. As soon as I went to sleep, I woke up to my mom waking me up in the morning as she always does around 6AM. I have a headache coming on, don't wanna eat, a bit pissy.

1. Is the time lapse because of the alcohol?

2. How do I get over the crappy feeling?

2 AnswersVideo & Online Games9 years ago### Should I get 1 or 2gb more memory?

I've got 1gb of memory in my Compaq 6910p and need more. I'm considering getting 1gb more RAM since I've got an open slot. Would I be better off getting a 2gb stick so I'd have 1x2gb and 1x1gb for a total of 3gb or a 2x1gb for a total of 2gb? I just want the thing to stop being so sluggish and maybe a little World of Warcraft..
