  1. Sticky: [all variants] Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Good news / bad news. You can scratch me off of your 'still needs help' list. I ended up blowing away the OS and trying again. Thanks a TON for all of you time and effort - I really do appreciate...
  2. Sticky: [all variants] Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Correct. I'm wondering if my BIOS got goobered up some how or if there's a hardware issue somewhere.
  3. Sticky: [all variants] Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Huh - that's weird. Anyway I've changed it. Will bounce and report. Thanks again!

    Edit1: Nothing. It still doesn't seem to get to grub or whatever (unless using a live CD of some sort). I've...

    Holy smokes - I'll bet it does. Thanks again for all your help!

    What?! You're helping someone other than me? :p

    Just messing. So did you have any additional words of wisdom or is a reload in my future?

    Didn't see any way to specify linux only. It does appear to interrogate my system and tees up a file to download but it appears to be a windows bootstrap program - amddriverdownloader.exe

  7. Sticky: [all variants] Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    I didn't.



    Didn't see any drivers at all on that screen. Just says 'no proprietary drivers are in use on this system'. I did go to synaptic package manager and saw that a seemingly reasonable...

  9. Sticky: [all variants] Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Was on 11.04, hit the upgrade (to 11.10) button last night and wish I hadn't. I've got the black screen thing when trying to start my computer. I've read the first several posts and can't seem to...

    Re: Oldest Ubuntu

    Just wiped out an 8.x installation last night in favor of 11.04. I had been reluctant to upgrade because 1. my wife and daughter had craploads of pics/vids and I didn't want to fool with them (now...

    Re: Missing link what do you think

    Sure I can. You seem to be typing in anger - it's just a discussion. I hope you have a great night!

    More importantly (though completely unrelated), where is your avatar pic from? That reminds...

    I'd say all but perhaps 4 applies to evolution but I imagine this is one of those areas where you and I will just need to be ok with disagreeing.

    No offense though - I'm not trying to convert you...

    Re: Missing link what do you think

    You and I are in 98% agreement right there. There are other conventional religions that don't depend on a belief in an almighty being but they do all require faith - just like the theory of...

    Re: Missing link what do you think

    Ok fine, but then you get locked in the infinite loop of 'all right but where did that come from'. Also, that doesn't refute the notion that evolution requires faith.

    Re: Missing link what do you think

    Sure.

    In fairness, it's probably more accurate to say that evolution is a necessary component of the religion of humanism. In any event, belief in evolution requires at least as much faith as any...

    To just see then from time to time, hit alt-return ( assuming you have the plugin activated). That brings up a properties box for the song - the third tab of which is the lyrics tab.
