Re: freezes to white and black lined screen after waking

awesome i just checked it and you are correct. still not entirely sure what happened. im guessing i had the wrong drivers, some sort of substitute drivers that worked well enough but weren't the best ones, and by installing that stuff from software manager it got fixed.

anyways thanks for the help!

Re: where do the files from software manger go

Re: freezes to white and black lined screen after waking
