    Re: HD5750 - which AMD driver to use?

    I've got an HD7770 and the proprietary drivers are head and shoulders above the open source drivers, especially with Wine.

    However, your GPU has been around longer so the open source drivers might...

    [SOLVED] Re: Need help diagnosing random crashes.

    Interesting. You did an upgrade from Vista to 7, not a fresh install I see.

    MsMpEng.exe is used by Windows Defender for Windows Vista. It's not used in 7 as far as I know, but it's not obtrusive...

    Aha! There's your problem.

    [SOLVED] Re: Triple Booting after format

    Have a look at your partition tree before you proceed. There might be hidden or irremovable partitions and HDDs can only support 4 primary partitions.

    [SOLVED] Re: how do we fix this one

    Did you do an upgrade over a fresh install?

    Hi there. From what you're describing, your problem isn't grub at all.

    Do me a favor and run this command in your Ubuntu terminal.

    Thank you for quoting that! I originally linked to something else that was bootable but didn't erase that part.

    It's probably just the curse of playing a 90's game on a modern machine.

    Try setting your machine to run in VGA (640x480) resolution and 256 colors. If you can't drop down to 256 colors, at least...

    What does your BIOS have to say about your bolt-on GPU? Will it boot through if you disconnect the GPU and try it purely with your laptop's output?
