I have 320 GB HDD, 2GB RAM, Core 2 duo @ 1.3 GHz netbook. I have Ubuntu on a 40 gb partition and windows 7 in the rest. Out of 320 gb just 17 gb is free.
I made a huge mistake of installing 64 bit win7 on this 2gb ram machine.
Now whenever i watch a movie or play a game on win7, i encounter sudden pauses/freezes for a millisecond or so. And these pauses are very frequent. Is there any way except formatting my pc which can reduce this freeze ? PLz need help here! Is ubuntu causing the problem ?

Understood. Most netbooks use the integrated intel video.

Your Nvidia drivers can be found here:

The 64-bit version is not the problem, you can't install a 64-bit OS on an only 32-bit system.

Could be something as simple as a chipset driver in Windows. Make sure all are up to date.
