So I installed my Dlink DWL-G510 yesterday. I had to use windows drivers with ndiswrapper which wasn't too much of a problem. I had to restart a couple of times in the process and I added and removed different windows drivers until I got the right one (windows xp from the CD that came with the card). I finally had everything working the way I wanted it to and I was connected to my network.
Today when I start the computer I get to the login screen where I type in my user name and password and then I have the nice orange background but all that shows up is a gray square in the top left corner. When I put the mouse over it, it looks like I can type something or there is selectable text but nothing happens.
I tried going into some kind of recovery mode to "fix packages" and then restore drivers but all that has done is mess up my resolution back to 640x480 now.
I can get to the desktop by going into options at login and selecting failsafe mode but thats the only way I can get in. I also went to the terminal and typed:
I still have the same problem now. As well I can't find the place where I can select my monitor and video card anymore so my resolution is stuck at 640x480.
sudo ndiswrapper -r (i forget the exact name now but its removed)
Just when I thought I had everything the way I like it.
