    I tried changing my graphics card settings in BIOS to discrete, but that lead to some very slow loading and more errors than wanted. Switched back. I tried to download the driver straight from...

    I found the additional tabs driver, but no driver. Would it be a driver problem that wont let me use my VGA port? Havent tried HDMI since I dont have that cable.

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Not a new user, but I had windows before as a crutch

    Brusegadi, you would be right. I want to use virtualbox so I can run some of my unsupported hardware. So far this seems to be my graphics card, havent come across anything else I cant use yet. How...

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Not a new user, but I had windows before as a crutch

  10. [ubuntu] Re: Not a new user, but I had windows before as a crutch

    I have to download the OS so I can install it. It is free this way through my major.

    Because it is a secure download, I have to...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Not a new user, but I had windows before as a crutch

    Crossover might be what I am looking for. I have tried to connect to my tv via vga cable, but unbuntu doesnt support that. Are there ways around that?

    The .pkg thing confused me as well. I...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Not a new user, but I had windows before as a crutch

    Right. Sorry about that.

    Are there any programs I can use to run the pre-existing hardware on my laptop? If not, I want to run windows via virtualbox instead of with a dual install. The files I...
  13. [ubuntu] Not a new user, but I had windows before as a crutch

    No more crutches here, I am windows free!
