I've had a quick look to see if anyone else might have this but no luck, sorry if this has been sorted out before.
OK here's the background, I had a beloved Toshiba satelite pro, that due to playing Supcom too much I melted the graphics card. I recently found out about Ubuntu, and have been installing it on all of the house computers. I even put it on an old PC, and noticed that it ran even though the graphics drivers didn't work... that got me thinking.
Meanwhile on the tosh, I managed to a get a 'creative' version of windows XP to run, although the graphics barely worked. I installed Ubuntu, and....
It worked!!! Kinda.. I can only boot it in recovery mode, but once i get to the login it works fine. Of course this wouldn't normally be a problem, but I was thinking of giving the lappy to my wife who is quite militant about things like prompts and anything not completely straight forward.
When I try a normal boot I get a black screen after a couple of seconds (plus a nasty bleeping noise). I only want the computer to run firefox, streaming and some word processing packages.
Is there any way I can sort this out for my woman? ^^
Thanks in advance (btw I'm a complete scrub when it comes Ubuntu)
