Graphic issues with lmde3 and to old hardware?

Hi. I seem to have the same problem as others upgrading from LMDE 2 to 3. If I understand other threads here on the forum it's possible to use other drivers but I haven't really understood how. I'd like to avoid buying a new card. If anyone can point me in a direction I'd be grateful. Specs: ff.png ...

Can I manage graphic drivers in Cinnamon?

Ok. I feel ridiculous but is there no way to access graphic drivers in Cinnamon? Do I have to use the terminal?

Re: Difficulties with booting from CD and USB

Succeeded booting from USB!
I guess the verdict is:
-There's something wrong with my DVD-drive.
-USBstick is not considered removablemedia but a small harddrive.

Thank you for helping!
Now I only have to repair LMDE as described here: viewtopic.php?f=246&t=296842

Re: Difficulties with booting from CD and USB

Is the real question "Difficulties with booting from CD and USB" or difficulty booting LMDE from disk? The answer to the first problem would be found within your BIOS settings - provided that the USB/DVD's you are using have been written to be bootable. Have you tested booting the USB/DVD's in a se...

Re: Difficulties with booting from CD and USB

Yes. It should be doable and that's the reason for the post. Why doesn't it work and what is there to do about it? I still can boot up windows and if boot LMDE2 in recovery mode it seems to work but doesn't know where to go from there.

Do you see the GRUB menu when you attempt to boot from disk?
Yes I do. I can choose to boot up Windows and that works. If I try to boot LMDE it starts fine, showing the mintlogo and all but then it all goes black and nothing more seems to happen.

Re: Are all these upgrading issues related to partitionsize?

I'm almost certain that your problems are down to timeshift taking up considerable space on your / partition. You can check this with sudo timeshift --list My rootpartition was to small to fit a backup from timeshift from the start so it's actually stored in the homepartition. I used my oldest back...

Re: Difficulties with booting from CD and USB

Is Fast Startup enabled in Win8.1? There were other post about Fast Startup feature causing boot issues with Win10 and I see that Win8.1 also have this feature. Fast startup was actually active so I disabled it. It didn't do any difference though but most of the time when I boot up windows it freez...
