My laptop is a Compaq Presario 2170us and Hardy is the first distro I've had problems with, especially when it comes to my display. There are lines all over the screen anytime I open a window and getting Compiz to work is an unsuccessful chore.
I posted my xorg.conf and the output of lspci here:
Can anyone help? I've been a cheer-leader for Ubuntu for almost a year..... but I don't like this "auto config" think at all!! My laptop has an older ATI card (ATI Mobility Radeon).
I'm having an audio problem, too (ton's of skips and crackles in my recordings) and since I do commercial voice-overs, this is a really bad thing!
....but I want to get my video problems fixed first.
I was really hoping for great things from Hardy....but right now, DreamLinux 3.2 works the best for me.
(...and if your response is along the lines of "Stay with DreamLinux", please save your breath/typing.)
