Want to unistall ubuntu 12.04 from hp sleekbook and install windows 8.1. pls help

Assuming you have your windows 8.1 on disks, make sure your HP is set to boot from disk and put disk in and boot your computer up. The windows install should start and you can choose to delete Ubuntu and install windows. Remove any partitions that it displays and choose to install windows on the entire disk. After that just follow the prompts and windows will install.

Installation of sqldeveloper on ubuntu 12.4

First, make sure you have JDK 7 installed. Then,
  1. Install alien with the command sudo apt-get install alien. This is used to convert RPM packages
  2. Download the Oracle SQL Developer package if you have not done so already.
  3. Run alien on the RPM package: alien -d package.rpm.
  4. Install the package with the command sudo dpkg -i package.deb. If there is a message saying there is a dependency problem while installing it, you can fix it by running sudo apt-get -f install.

Hp pavillion allinone ms213

You didn't say what the PC specs are and what you are running. Reinstall video drivers. If that won't help - check if your PC is overheating. If not - check if the application's or game is too heavy for your system.
