View Full Version : [ubuntu] Graphical optimisation for Satellite P30

June 13th, 2010, 04:39 PM
Hi guys,

I'm prety new in the ubuntu world but I'm a computer scientist so I have some good technical skills.

So, I come here with a old Toshiba Satellite p30 that work very good on windows XP and I installed ubuntu 9,0 on. Everything seem to be working good except for some graphical issues.

First, when I play video on youtube, the computer begin to be very laggy but the most of the time I can play the video without any problems. It's became a real problem when I'm on other web site like vbs.tv where it's become very laggy and the computer became almost unusable while playing.

Also, the google map is not as smooth as it should be compared on what I got on XP.

So I think there is some drivers that will make my graphical experience better. Maybe it's not the problems and I never find any drivers on the internet for my video card so I want to know what do you think about that.

Also an interesting information, my laptop screen is broken, so I use an external monitor to use it.

Thank's in advance.
