:( Been trying to load nvidia drivers for my geforce mx440 card .when it goes to download,pc freezes up,have to give her the 3 finger salute! I had ubuntu 9.04 on before,but set it up as a dual-boot w/Win 2000. Both are fresh installs. Also last kernel update yesterday took off my grub screen! I think it's possesed:)! Tired of 640x480, it had 1024x768 before! It's in a Dell Dimension 2100,512 memory,video card is pci. I have it hooked to my tv via vga output to watch movies(Hulu,Fancast,Crackle...) free ones! Any help to this old fart newbie is appreciated!:guitar:
