I included a enerated report from system information.

my boot time is very slow more than 2 min(i think)
After booting all the icons and menu appears very slow.
when i open up file manager i takes time to open.
when opening any application i have to wait 10-15 sec before it pops up.
I cannot watch videos in youtube.(not because of buffering but browser freezes)i tried in firefox, chromium(which i cannot remove for unknown reason,palemoon(only browser that plays for 2 min)
I cannot surf online without getting app freeze message only after opening 1-5 pages
In terminal htop while browsing it shows cpu 1 and 2 100% and memory 900 to 1.2 gb out of 2 gb.
i couldnt use VScode so i had to use sublime text and thonny.

why is my system so slow ? is my system requirement incapable of handeling linux lite 5.4 64bit.
i didnt know what file to provide so i provided generated report from system information, if it is not enough plaese ask for more.
perviously i used windows 8.1 32bit it was also laggy but i could watch youtube videos.

Welcome to the Linux Org forums



We are an un-associated, Independent advice a site for those in need of help with installation problems, those wanting a deeper understanding of Linux and Tech's needing more advanced advice,
We are a voluntary organisation our members are scattered across the four corners of the world and every time zone, so please accept that you may not get a quick answer.
Just a few things to remember
We are an international board so we ask that all post be in English [if you think your English is not very good , fine give it a try or use one of the translator programs [ DeepL Translate: The world's most accurate translator is recommended]

When asking for help
Please state the make and model number of your machine or its specification [some problems may be equipment specific]
Please tell us which distribution and build number you are having problems with [example Ubuntu 18.1]
Explain what your problem is and what [if anything] you have tried to remedy it yourself

Finally Linux is not Windows, It will require the newcomer to invest a little time and effort going through a learning curve so please don’t give up, kick off your shoes, grab a drink and enjoy the ride.

found this....

the RTL810xE ethernet card. may not be working properly because you have the r8169 installed, which works fine for the RTL8111/8168/8411 ethernet card, but not the RTL810xE.

no you didn't download it it is the driver that automatically down loads for realteck, I will have a look round and see if i can find you more information

when you installed your OS did you say yes to installing additional or non free drivers? if not open the menu on all applications look for additional drivers , click on and let it run [may take a few mins. ] and see if it finds a better driver itself

ok we tried the basics and now are stepping out of my area
perhaps @Nelson Muntz may have a better idea.

Let see. Linux Lite requires around 1GB RAM. Based on your attachment, your RAM is around 2GB and you are using more than 50% of your RAM. Run this command to find out what processes that make boot slow.
sudo systemd-analyze blame
Then, post your results here.
Otherwise, you might need to switch your distro. The ones I've tried before are Q4OS (the lightest), AntiX and Xubuntu.
Adding your RAM could improve the result too.

Good morning, having taken a look at your spec. I estimate your box to be around 14 years old [this is not a problem] it only has 2gb of ram, although Most versions of linux will run on this an increase to 4gb would not go amiss ,
did you try more than just one build of linux not just Linux Lite ?

With a slow CPU and 2GB of RAM, don't expect too much. I have Linux Lite running on my 9 yr old Laptop but it has 4GB of Ram 64bit and a i5 CPU 2.5GHz, runs quite fast...much faster than windoze 7 it came with. :)

Bwiz
will the addition of 2 gb more ram mitigate all problems that i am having?
and no i have no idea which to try i installed this distribution as per suggestion from friend.
is there even any thing that can run in this system smoothly if yes then can you suggest some.

can you recommend something that can work relatively smoothly and is relatively easy to operate.

something that can work relatively smoothly
puppy ,Peppermint, Q4, lubuntu, linux lite, Mx, bohdi, antix & zorin
Puppy and Q4 are both very light distributions [and so a little basic in their operation] the rest are light to medium..my personal preferences are MX and Peppermint but they all can work well, I usually suggest you run several different distributions live, as some will run smother than others , depending on the machine your using, also you will get a good idea if you like the desktop environment.
