I love my new HG and am running it on an AMD64 with Ubuntu 8.04.
Generally it works fine but I get one artifact. Periodically I get an
apparent random set of horizontal lines. They come and go when the
screen refreshes. I thought it might have something to do with the
refresh rate settings but no matter what I tried I could not make them
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have never heard of this til now. It might be a stuck package? You can try booting into recovery mode by hitting the esc key at boot time and selecting the top line that ends in "recovery mode" then af the next menu select "fix broken packages". Did you have Firefox 2 and 3 installed or just one of them? Is Firefox running in gnome system monitor after you start it and maybe just not showing the window? The only other thing I can think of to try would be to make a new user and log into that user and try it.
Hi, ok first did you install the server version or the desktop version??? i suggest that you you go to http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading and follow the step from the version of Ubuntu you have. If you cannot log in the i suggest that you reinstall Ubuntu from the cd you have , now if you prefer you can order a free cd from from ubuntu and you will have the latest intrepid 8.10. any problem come back to me firstname.lastname@example.org
From what I know, both your motherboard and your hard drive work with Ubuntu. I would try the newest release, 8.04 (Hardy Heron).
Try setting the motherboard into AHCI mode rather than IDE mode (you should be able to change this under hard drive settings in your BIOS)
Also, the problem may be with your optical drive. Try swapping that out.
If you can't solve it from there, if you haven't already, try posting on the ubuntu forums.
