Old Dell inspiron 8500, loaded Ubuntu 10.04 graphic problems
by Par-man - 6/3/10 7:50 AM
Running a GeForce 4200 Go 64, with what Ubuntu said is the latest drivers. I can't tell if I have a hardware or software problem. Some time after loading I can touch the mouse pad or push on the lower part of the computer and the screen flashes and gets fuzzy and locks up the computer. Other times it will load and run for a while before if locks up, only way out is to use the power off button, can not get to a terminal screen? I think it could be the card overheating or a bad driver, running a 3D driver on an VGA card I don't think is good??
Thanks in advance
