This was going to be my suggestion as well, back up the important documents and pictures, then do a factory reset. I just did that on my Toshiba laptop from 2009 and it made quite a difference.
Though if you said that even Ubuntu runs slow it might be hardware. How much storage space is being used on the computer? I only wanted to use my old laptop to backup pictures and documents so I didn’t replace the 500gb hard drive with a ssd, but if I decide to do more than that in the future I will get it a ssd for sure.
