    I was of the opinion that my Radeon card simply does not...

    I understand switchable graphics don't work well in Linux and I haven't tried the steps in the link yet. However, because Ubuntu only seems to detect my Intel graphics card, I don't see why the...

    I know it isn’t the answer you’re looking for, but have you tried turning off "tap to click?"

    Hmm... this doesn't look very promising. :/

    There are a couple of things you could try though. First, I want you to switch floppy to #2 and hard disk to #3. This is just in case.

    [ubuntu] Re: Using Ubuntu to read dead hard drive

    [ubuntu] Re: Using Ubuntu to read dead hard drive

    As the above user stated, you do not need a hard disk to boot anything from a CD. In fact, I have no hard drive in my laptop... my OS is installed to a small USB drive.

  11. [SOLVED] Re: MBR question (sorry if it is a dumb question :/ )

    That's why it was a dumb question. I wasn't sure if the new install would install a new MBR. I don't know much about it. :/
