Screen flashes? ubuntu Newbie Series

with 2 comments

After I had installed ubuntu on my laptop, the first problem was my screen flashes severely.

I had tried most ways given in the ubuntuforum.org to fix this problem, editing documents, installing software, but failed.

At last, I remembered a extraordinary simple way referred among hand of complex technical instructions.

Press video output button on your keyboard.

God damn! It works!

No Sound problem –ubuntu Newbie Series

leave a comment »

In Last post I write about how to install ubuntu, and syslik asked help for solving sound problem of his ubuntu.

I am sorry that I reply this help so late, and syslik may has already solved it now. syslik’s trust on me just a little scares me, as he/ she report the hardware data of his computer to me, which making me seems like a master. But I don’t know more than you.

I have found some pages about the sound problem in ubuntu, hope that helps.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DebuggingSoundProblems

Some of the information may be outdate now, but you can find most of the answers in ubuntuforums.org and google.

I have met sound problem too. It’s too low to hear clearly. This is how I solved it.

double click the sound icon on the top of the desktop

then, there’s a mixer

File>>Change Device
choose another available device, and adjust the volume, you can higher your computer sound in this way.

If this cannot solve your problem, try Edit>> Preferences, tick all the possible controls, and try them all.

Good luck!
