    chipset drivers

    Hello fellow Linux users, I wold like to ask you one question.
    I am running on Xubuntu 12.04 LTS on my Acer AspireOne that uses gma500 chipset that is very "specific". But my Wifi card is fully functional, although my BT is not able to share data, it just recognises devices around.
    I found some solutions here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireOne/AO751h considering the driver issues.
    Problem is I have no bootloader. It does not appear at all and to access the system I must open the console an type in

    Code:
    sudo service lightdm restart
    I do not know what to do, please help.

    Hi, did you go to /etc/default/grub and add
    the options per the link you posted???
    *IF YES then you need to update grub..
    Code:
    sudo update-grub

    Hi, before you go any further i strongly advise you to
    back up your grub file BEFORE any changes,,
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.old
    where you put the options from the link you included will not
    make a difference as you put them in a line starting with a "#"
    attached is a screen shot of where to insert that ONE line.

    What you call "no bootloader" is really just a black screen - a known issue with 12.04 and the GMA500.
    Check out the -->wiki page<-- for workarounds.
