Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

Windows XP: How to adjust visual effects


Windows XP, while not as visually appealing as Vista's Aero interface, does have the capability to produce some neat visual effects. These effects range from smooth edges to small animations, and they are typically all enabled by default. However, if you have at some point disabled them or if they have been turned off by another user (or if you want to turn them off) here are the steps to adjust Windows XP's visual effects:

A. Right click on My Computer (either from the Start menu or from the desktop).

B. Select Properties.

C. Go to the Advanced tab.

D. In the Performance section, click the Settings button.

E. The list of visual effects will appear. Put a check mark next to the effects you want enabled, and remove the check mark next to any effects you want to disable.

F. When you have made your selections, click OK or Apply to save the changes.

You can also turn all of the effects on at once by choosing "Adjust for best appearance," or turn all of them off by choosing "Adjust for best performance." The first option on the screen, "Let Windows choose what's best for my computer," allows the system to make the selections for you. (Typically, if you choose this option, all of the effects will be enabled.)

If your computer is running slower than you'd like, and you don't really care about window animations or icon shadows, turning all of these features off might free up a little bit of system memory. You can always try one setting or the other and then come back in later to change it.

How to install ATI Video Card Drivers for Linux / Ubuntu


For most of the linux distributions, ATI Video Card Drivers are the hardest to get working, since it is not normally included in the installation. Linux would still normally work since it has a basic VESA driver installation but it would not have any 3D effects, which is one of the things Linux users would crave to have on their system.

With the 3D effects, changing the desktop or the workspace, makes linux usage fun and exciting. To have that, we need the drivers for the video card that allows 3D Acceleration.

For ATI Video cards, here are the steps to follow to install the driver on linux.

1) Make sure that you have updated your kernel to the latest version.
2) Go to this link --> "http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx"

This is where you can download any ATI Video Card driver. Make sure to pick the right linux type because there are two items on the list to choose from either Linux x86 or x86_64. The latter part is for 64 Bit systems. Then choose your ATI Product Family like Radeon, FirePro and so on. Then choose your product from the list and click go. Download the latest driver with ATI catalyst onto a folder in your hard drive.

3) You need to go to the terminal console. On ubuntu it would be Terminal on mandriva it is KTerminal or whatever terminal you are used to. Change to the directory of the download. ( e.g. "chdir /home/myusername/Downloads")

4) To run the installation you need to be an administrator or a SuperUser. There are a couple of ways to do it and it is dependent on what distribution you are using. For ubuntu, kubuntu or any other debian type linux distributions first you need to type in "sudo" then the command or the name of the executable file or script. For example for your ati driver: "sudo ./ati-driver-installer-10-4-x86.x86_64.run ". The press enter. It may ask for a password, so you have to type it in.

For other distributions, like mandriva or redhat, you need to be a superuser or login as a super user in the terminal before you do the command or run the executable. So you first type in "su" then press enter. After that it would ask you for the password. Type it in and then press enter. Then type the command or name of executable like "./ati-driver-installer-10-4-x86.x86_64.run " then press enter.

5) After you have run the installation you will get the installation screen just make sure to just follow the steps or normally keep clicking next.

6) When you are done installing the driver make sure to restart the system.

NOTES / TIPS:
Linux normally gets updates almost every week, which would sometimes include an update of the kernel. When this happens, your ati driver would not work on reboot. On some instances, you would even just go to a black screen or it would crash and stop on the splash screen at the start of the linux boot process. For you to prevent this from happening make sure that you have a copy of the driver you installed or better yet make sure that you have an updated copy of the driver. If you are able to go into linux but found that you do not have the 3D capability. Reinstall the driver again. If you are not able to go to linux go to the repair option at the start of the boot process. From there install the Driver. Then restart the computer.

Jit debugger error


jrotten65,

This error only pertains to Microsoft Visual Studio. Depending on which version of the software you are using, follow the links below.

Try updating to the newest release of Visual Studio
http://www.microsoft.com/express/
or use the Debugging Tools for Windows as an alternative
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/gg463009.aspx
The Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\DbgJITDebugLaunchSetting is set to 0x00000010 when JIT debugging is enabled.


I hope this helps.

Installed ubuntu 9.10 now can't boot XP. Black


Now that you have installed ubuntu which is linux did you make your pc able to do dual boot. It is possible you have overwriten some important files like master boot record while doing ubuntu installation. Most times blinking cursor means no hard drive or operating system. you can try poping in XP cd and try to do recovery if you have it. Also easiest would be if you could boot into safe mode and try to fix the issue by replacing missing or corrupt files.

Ubuntu 8.10 wont detect my wireless card


You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.

I have no idea how to operate a linux os


Trying out different operating systems can be a lot of fun. It can be frustrating at times, but for those of us who like to try new things, the frustration is part of the challenge, thus part of the fun!

Linux is a great option because there is so much free stuff out there. Almost all of the Linux distributions have great documentation also. You mentioned Ubuntu, so let's stick with that for now. If you downloaded the current stable version, 8.10, then there is a site that should answer all of your questions.

https://help.ubuntu.com/8.10/newtoubuntu/C/index.html

The above link takes you to a page that links you to the docs for those who are new to Ubuntu Linux. Everything from computer basics to the role of the administrator account.

Happy reading, and happy experimenting.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

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.

How to install linux on compaq presario cq40-144tu


hrm... i'll just assume that this is the first time you've attempted anything with linux? There are vairous Linux distributions, with the Ubuntu flavour seeming to be the best one for the windows to linux switcher (IMO). I would try a live Ubuntu disc first to make sure it's what you're after, which can be downloaded here
http://releases.ubuntu.com/intrepid/ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso

or if you're ready to dive straight in, here is the full version that you burn to a cd and then install
