view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – the laptop is not upgradable and online video is pretty terrible. I am currently using the nvidia driver version 306?. would it work better using the free noveau driver for flash and html5 type online video? i upgraded to kernel 3.9 which i read has improvements in the free driver i dual boot with win7 and i noticed the online video is much much better in safe mode vs normal mode. I also have the nvidia driver installed in windows 7 ver 186.22 my suspicians is driver programmers donbt care about older hardware, so the available drivers have been designed to work with faster hardware.
