Guess what I'm new here. Had a try with Linux in the past, OK! I like Mint seems to do most things, even reads my Windows drives, etc. But I have a problem that I have had in the past and can't think how to cure it. Perhaps "nVidia" is the problem?
The problem is I can't set my video refresh rate higher then 60Hz and you know what that does to your eyes!! I have only just installed Mint, and am a complete beginner with Linux (Now Z80 assembler and PIC programming no problem). The other problem I have is installing software. How to?
My System is.
Asrock ConRoe 1333-D677 mobo.
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz E6750
2Gb DDR-2 677 Ram (2x 1Gb)
Xpertvision nVidia 8600GTS PCI-e card, 512 GDDDR3 video memory
C drive is 80Gb in a caddy (swapable for Vista or Linux)
D drive is 250Gb for backup, photo storage, etc.
Can someone give my a few ideas or point me in the right direction.
