    Dell xps - Problems with video drivers and webcam

    Hi, I just installed kubuntu 13.04 64bit on my dell xps 1530. I have two problems, one with drivers video and another with the webcam.

    VIDEO: I tried to install all the proprietary drivers, one by one, appearing in the driver manager. But I always have a broken boot screen now...moreover, I cannot have full functionalities on for example the new google maps.

    WEBCAM: this simply doesn't work, the led on my dell is on but the image captured is black...

    Thanks for helping
    All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.
