Ubuntu problems


Download the free edition of EasyBCD (it's boot-up software) and install it in 'C' -Windows. Run EasyBCD... it's very straightforward. It will identify the operating systems on your computer ... choose 'use EasyBCD boot loader' (or similar) and save the changes.

It sounds as though you have somehow lost the boot loader for Ubuntu (it's in C - Windows) when there was an update, which is quite common ..

Using EasyBCD will return your computer to dual-boot

Hello there.

Nice to see more people trying out Linux :-)

From your description it sounds like the CD image you downloaded is not bootable. What i would do is scrap that CD and try the following, this is a guide that explains step by step how to take the downloaded .ISO file and burn it to CD, so that the computer can boot from it (known as a bootable CD).

Please click here for the information.

As Ubuntu has a partition program as part of the installer, you can use this to resize your Windows partition and install Ubuntu in the free partition left over.

This should get you setup in no time :)

Hope this helps.

How to fix error 17 by starting windows xp at acer aspire zg5


Error 17 sounds like a grub bootloader problem, IE: your Acer disk didn't perhaps reload the boot code for Windows, or remove grub entirely.

http://www.ubuntu.com/download
Ubuntu 10.10 Latest Version
which can repair what windows has ruined and is unable to fix fix the problem
either burn it to a disk as an iso and install

you might have burn it to an iso first then boot from the cd rom to install ubuntu or you might just try to install ubuntu directly from the download if it does not install you might save it to a folder then burn it as an isohttp://download.cnet.com/active-iso-burner/3000-2646_4-10602452.html
once Ubuntu has been installed on your computer has corrected the fault you will be able to reinstall windows
or keep ubuntu and install windows next door to it

I have a VAIO SVE15114FXS. I believe this is a hardware problem, as it seems to be OS independent. Tested in Windows 8.1, Ubuntu (several versions). Do these systems share drivers? Unsure if it would...


The drivers for Windows 8.1 possibly not being installed can cause these problems. The drivers for each type of Operating System are different. When you install an operating system generic drivers are used and some of these will cause unusual problems. The Windows drivers are known to cause problems. Ubuntu drivers are usually installed with the Operating System. Drivers from the computer manufacturers can be downloaded for each Operating System.

Did you try booting from the Ubuntu cd and ran the desktop live cd demo ? That will bypass the windows drivers and uses ubuntu stuff only so if that worked your instal should have worked. It sounds like it doesn't like your video card as a guess.

I've never had that problem in a install but I would bet they have on the ubuntu support forum.

http://ubuntuforums.org/

I think you will be able to get your answer there. If you can't find it using the search ( I tried. didn't) then post it and give a bit more info such as ubuntu version, and so on. Lots of good help there. Once you get it running you will be quite happy with it.

No sound


When you go from Windows to Linux (Ubuntu) you will have problems as the hardware and drivers were made for Windows and not Linux. Ubuntu does not always automatically pick up your hardware. Here's what you can do to make it easier. The latest Ubuntu is 8.10 so you need to download the latest version. Then once that is downloaded you need to look at the top bar, there will be a red arrow asking you to download the latest patches. Take those steps as it will bring you current version and current software and may allow your sound card to work.
