I have an acer 5520 and I just put Ubuntu 910 on it, and my screen keeps splitting and breaking in full screen mode. I have configured and checked my screen settings, but every time I try to full screen anything I'm watching, the screen begins to flip and split down the middle horizontally.
Help please.

open a terminal from applications->accessories->terminal

update your system with:


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

you may need to reboot afterwards. Then check to see if you can enable any hardware drivers for your nvidia card by pressing Alt-F2 and entering:


sudo jockey-gtk
