  17. [ubuntu] Re: Suggestions for screen freeze and random reboot

    Thank you. You are probably right, in which case it is the bin for this old dinosaur. It is not worth investing any money in. Odd thing is, I had an old live CD of Ubuntu 8.10 and it loaded it and...

  23. [ubuntu] Re: Data recovery software - any recomendations?

    Thank you for your reply. Plugging in the card does not mount it. It will only show up in the lsusb listing. If it would mount, I could see the extent of the data corruption. Is there any...
