View Full Version : [ubuntu] ver. 9.04 max at 800x600...glitchy

September 6th, 2009, 09:03 AM
just installed ubuntu 9.04 on older laptop successfully after checking the acpi=off option at install screen, but display max resolution is 800x600 (doesn't even fill screen), and operation of menus, loading programs, etc. seems slowish. only have 256 mb ram. and something like 5.5mb video ram. sony vaio laptop pcg-fx140 is about 10 or 11 years old. pentium iii 700mhz. does xubuntu support flash on websites (cuz i'm thinking maybe i need a lighter-weight os)? been stuck without flash capability in windows Me on this machine too long. any help or pointers towards the appropriate operating system? or methods to streamline 9.04 to fill my screen and run smoothly?
