Alright so I do have some experience with computers and I just came from a windows operating system (after coding a virus for it, wrecking my computer(software wise), fixing it, and then formatting it. XD) so I am running (os is 32 bit)ubuntu 10.04.2 lucid backtrack 5 r3 and kernel version 3.2.6 (although I'm pretty sure somethings wrong with it and im tired of looking around) I'm running 64x amd athlon nvidia gforce 9400 and I have 4 gigs of ddr3 ram and some harman kardon like windows 98 speakers XD sound card is onboard some old hp motherboard I have downloaded the nvidia common and 173 drivers (neither nor were working and I have went through multiple deletions) I downloaded oracle vm virtual box and I went to the log file and the following pulls up:

Didnt get through reading it all cus I figured my kernel was just in need in fixing, also my sound doesn't correspond too well .. keyboard shortcuts don't work (such as extra keys on side like volume control and disk tray control) I set them up multiple times and I have updated/upgraded my distro via terminal and my sound for some reason doesnt correspond, its like the only hardware that it picks up is my processor and the make of my graphics card .. p.s. sorry for the extraneous grammatical structure (or lack there of) its like one in the morning and I have been at it all day. hope thats all the problems!
