    Re: Partly white screen

    I see that you are using the Nouveau video driver for your Nvidia GT218. It is commendable that you have choosen to use an opensource driver and not the proprietary driver from Nvidia.

    I have the Nvidia GT 220 and I am using the Nvidia 295.20 driver which came with a recent update.

    I suggest that you go to Additional Drivers and activate the Nvidia proprietary driver. You may find that this solves the problem.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
