    How can I test my OS to see if I have problems?

    Hello, I've always been able to upgrade since Karmic Koala, but since 11.04, I've had problems!
    I can't load my Nvidia driver, I figured it would be ok, in 11.10, bugs n all that. But it hasn't, my displays plays up. Even now at 12.04, I thought things would improve. I've had various problems, such as reduced sound output to installing from software centre. Which takes ages to load, then greys out, then begins an install, say Adobe Flash player, it downloads then hangs whilst installing? Also, I'm running the Alternate download. It will never update via Update Manager, unless I change server from English to Main server.
    Should I have chosen the normal download?
    Can I get system report to post?

    These websites offer a program called Memtest to test the ( RAM ) memory.

    Try updating your Nvidia driver

    Hope this helps some

    It would help if you posted your full pc specs.
