Hello everyone. I am in desperate need of help, my screen keeps displaying random colours and failing after a several minutes of logging on, but the system does not crash at all. Also, I enjoy computer games very much and when I run games,the graphics in the games starts failing.
Hi, I hope I'm OK posting this here, since it's really a question about hardware and not Ubuntu.
I'm traveling in Vietnam, and my laptop has developed a serious graphics problem. Basically, anything involving hi-res graphics freezes the computer, but I can still boot in text-only mode and everything works fine.
I have an acer Travelmate 5520 with this graphics card in it. My problem is that i cant get it to function properly. I have installed the latest ati drivers for linux from ati's website but everything connected to the graphics seems to lag a whole lot. Compiz fusion and desktop graphics is very slow and laggy. I also tried to play some windows games through wine but they also lag a whole lot.
Hi ubuntuforums, I come to you with a question concerning a fresh installation of ubuntu 13.04 64bit. I installed it on my Lenovo Ideapad S405 it has AMD A-Series A8-4555M(1.60GHz) processor and AMD Radeon HD 7600G graphics card all other specs are in this link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834310637.
;i am having ubuntu 13.04 as Host and windows XP in virtual box(VB).I would like to know whether if i install a graphics card ,whether VB will detect automatically or rather whether my graphics card will work in VB while playing games etc..Please reply ;
Thanks, I am using 64-bit Waldorf. I have also noticed that logging in with a KDE session it behaves quite a bit different. Making me think that it might be using the VESA standard in that case. There is however nothing I can find that reads out the graphics card as GT 330M. I assume that I should be able to read out the card somehow, if it is working properly.
I got a new computer at work a month or so ago and I finally got around to putting Ubuntu 14.04 on as a dual boot environment. The machine is a Dell Optiplex 7010 with an Intel graphics card onboard. Since I was having trouble getting all three monitors working by splitting them between the onboard and the add in video card I put them all on the onboard using the DVI port and two display ports.
