    Re: "Having Trouble w/Broadcom..." support help

    I followed superm1's instructions and after some fiddling around, I got my system to finally recognize the drivers for my Dell 1505 Draft-N mini-card. Only problem is, the rest of my system is now messed up.

    Check the screenshot attached. My Dell M1330 is designed to run at 1280x800, but the system will not let me adjust the display. Furthermore, on restarts, Ubunutu takes forever to start up, worse than Vista. It also gives me an error while the kernal loads saying that the system could not detect my graphics settings. Manual configuration does nothing to fix it at this point, and I've run Envy and the Hardware Driver's versions of the nVidia drivers with no results.

    I guess this isn't a wireless/networking question, but maybe someone who knows what the Broadcom technique does could explain why my system would do this?

    Also, the info requested from the thread I refer to, just in case.
