    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu on an HP Pavilion N5490?

    I can install an older version of Ubuntu, it doesn't matter. I just don't want to spend $30 on a hard drive just to find out it's not going to work :(

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu on an HP Pavilion N5490?

    IDK about the Live CD test. That CD runs perfect on my laptop but Ubuntu doesn't run very well once installed. I mean it doesn't run very well at all :mad:

    I'm pretty sure the broken laptop has...

  4. [ubuntu] Re: I need suggestions for turning a spare PC into a multimedia PC

    The only gforce 7300gt that will fit my PC is $75 but it looks like it's the best bet.

    Last question, how would I record DVDs to my PC? I like VLC so I don't mind playing the DVDs using that.

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox keeps freezing

    I'm using FF 2.0.0.14 and so far, no more freezing but also no flash. I try to install it and I'm told it's already installed, websites tell me I need to install it.

    OK, I tried that (several times actually) but this time I made progress. Flash pages finish loading but FF tells me additional plug-ins are required. When I tried install Flash 9 it tells me the...

    I ran the memory test from the Ubuntu CD and it showed an error so I took out the RAM that I added about a month ago and all seems fine :)

    Thanks!

    [ubuntu] Re: Re-installed 7.10, everything lags

    [ubuntu] Re: Re-installed 7.10, everything lags

    Windows just started doing the same exact thing right now so it must be a hardware problem. Ubuntu and Windows sit on their own hard drive so it can't be that.

    Can anyone recommend what software...
