Double-checking your install media with the md5 and the integrity check function when booting the live USB might be a good idea.  It could be a derp in the original live USB causing a weird bug in the install.  Strange bugs are common with USB's, even when they seem to work fine for other things.

To clarify...   the wifi icon is in the systray.  You can move the systray, but the clickable space on it is a box that is 1 pixel thick surrounding the gadget.  I've always had to try several times before I manage to grab the thin border and get it to move.  The best way is often what The Waiter said:  Use other gadgets on the shelf to push/pull the systray around when moving it.

That 500MB ram is just barely enough to make a modern pc function with web browsing/video.  Ram is cheap on ebay, especially the older styles of it.  I'd suggest upgrading to at least 2GB ram if possible.  Not having enough of it can cause a pc to rely on swap space on a HDD, which slows it down drastically.  This could also be part of your issue.

I don't know of any tool for picking the proper kernel for your hardware, but if your laptop is running hot, I'd suggest having the fan and heat sink properly cleaned if it hasn't been done in a while.


As for a gui tool to see your pc's specs, I'd recommend hardinfo.  It will list lots of info about your pc as well as let you run some benchmarking tests on it.  You can install it from synaptic or just

sudo apt-get install -y hardinfo
