  1. Where did it say to wait? And I find Unity and Ubuntu suit my needs just fine, doesnt "suck" to me.
  2. Hi everyone. Since upgrading to 14.04 LTS on my laptop from 12.04, I've had a problem with my displays. Before upgrading to 14.04, I had my monitor configuration set up like this: For a reason unknown to me, now when I hit apply in 14.04, I recieve the error "Could Not Set Configuration Mode for CRTC 63." Can anybody explain this to me, and also help me figure out how to get rid of the other unknown display to the right? I have no idea where it comes from, all I have plugged into my latop is an HDMI cord.
  3. Thank you! I have the Steam thing working and for whatever reason I switched to the player and it sorted it out on most videos. Still dont know how to install Nvidia drivers.
  4. I try to stay away from Chrome in Ubuntu because it doesn't play nice at all with my extensions. It ha the same problem as before with the video playback on fullscreen.
  5. I can't find another way to post it. Try this link? https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/Photo%20Mar%2016%2C%206%2056%2001%20PM.jpg?_subject_uid=121787373&w=AACjFO5f15s6BsHNXh-c9DAAbN1UIEXJrs9FwEgqryy80Q
  6. Here's the best I could do. Paused that video perfectly, too!
  7. I can't take a screenshot of the issue, when I do the video exists fullscreen, and then it takes the screenshot. For whatever reason I uninstalled and reinstalled Steam. Works great now. The hell? What can I do to get nvidia graphics drivers? My laptop uses a GT 630M.
  8. To preface my earlier post about me trying to find my Windows partition after installing Xubuntu, thank you for your help, everyone. Turns out I just didn't pay attention and accidentally wiped my Windows partition and installed Xubuntu on it. I'll fix it when I find a copy of Windows 8.1. I was using Xubuntu for awhile, as I had seen it here on the fourms before, but I just liked the vanilla Canotical Ubuntu better. I installed Ubuntu 13.10 and have it up and running. So far it seems really nice. A couple of concerns if I may: 1. I have a problem with playing fullscreen YouTube video
  9. It's still saying "No root file system" I tried it on the other partition, but it wouldn't let me change anything (buttons were greyed out) so I tried this one. The change button was all that was allowed to me. I changed the mount point to /home and type to ext4. I go and hit install now and it gives me the "no root" error still.
  10. Problem wing they're the exact same size. Oops. When I go to take a chance and install it on one, I got a pop up stating "No root file system". Help? It does it on both the partitions that are the same size.
  11. Okay so I'm at the point where you choose something else. When I hit it there's a list of drive allocations that I can't tell which is which. I don't want to accidentally delete my Windows partition... When I made the partition I named it Partition 2.
  12. You're going to have to be really basic with me. I went back into the BIOS and configured it to boot from the USB drive I used to install Xubuntu. apon exiting the BIOS, it threw me right back into Xbuntu..
  13. I don't have one. This laptop never came with ANY recovery media such as a recovery disc.
  14. I tried to install Xubuntu on an ununsed, seperate partition on my laptop's hard drive. Upon installing Xubuntu, I can't boot back into Windows 8.1. Me being a complete noob at how to use Ubuntu and wanting to learn, how can I boot back into it? I really need help. The OS's are on different partitions of the same Hard Drive.
  15. Just a quick question about using the system builder ISO to reinstall windows through the Windows 8 utility, will I need to reenter my product key when i do remove everything and reinstall Windows? Videos online seem to not have to, but seeing as how my recovery partition is corrupted and needing to use an ISO disk I didnt know.
  16. I dont know which one that is. Ive always been terrible with hard drives. I opened up the partitions in EaseUS partition and I just got a bunch of them. Screenshot:
  17. I would like to reset my Toshiba laptop, so as normal I went into the Windows 8 settings and choose "Remove All Files and Reinstall Windows." When I click Get Started, I get a prompt telling me to "Insert Windows Media Installation and restart PC with media." Do I need another copy of Windows 8 to reset it? This Toshiba laptop came without any Windows 8 OS disc, and Ive had to take it to get it repaired before (Bricked OS). I just would like to reset it all. Also, would I need to enter in a Product Key if I did get to finally reset the PC? Thank you in advance. TL;DR: Laptops are a pain.
  18. What would you say is essential software for PCs? Things such as CPU-Z and GPU-Z?
  19. Looking to find the best closed loop water cooling system. Any recommendations and temps to back your choice would be nice. Thanks. Using Haswell.
  20. What does the fourm think the best percentage breakdown of a build is? I just want to hear people's thoughts! (Example: Budget of $1000) X% for the CPU X% for the CPU Cooler X% on the Motherboard X% on the Memory X% of the Storage X% on the GPU X% on the Case X% on the Power Supply X% on the OS X% on the Monitor X% on Miscellaneous Peripherals (List gathered from PCPartPicker.com) Like your favorite breakdown(s)!
