    I've tried shutting down every way I know, including the terminal. It freezes at the aubergine screen.

    I have now successfully downloaded and installed the ATI driver. Still same shutdown problem, though!

In windows, there is a functionality called the Switchable graphics using which I could switch between HD 5650 and Intel HD. After I installed ubuntu, additional drivers for ATI were asked for, which I clicked activate in the additional drivers menu. The computer wouldnt boot at all into the gnome-desktop at all after that. So I removed the X11 configuration files and restarted it and it worked well.

    Now when I try to the Visual effects in the appearance menu to Normal or high, it is reverting to none. I've installed Compiz hoping that it would help, but it didnt. What should I do to get these right and fixed?Can you please help me out in these two regards?

    Thanks

    I'm now away from home for a week, but think the best next step would be to do a verbose shutdown so I can see where it gets stuck (I'll post back here).
    Have totally forgotten how to do a verbose shutdown without the graphics etc. - can anyone tell me please?

    Thanks,

    A
