Re: Felicia stopped recognizing Nvidia card?

Thanks for the help. I tried both of your suggestions, but neither worked.. I decided to do a fresh install of Felicia; probably a lot more work than I needed to do, but it worked. Everything seems to be working now. Thanks again!

Felicia stopped recognizing Nvidia card?

I installed Felicia on my Vaio a couple weeks ago. Everything worked well until last night. Upon boot up I get a screen that says I don't have any graphics card installed, and asks if I want to boot in low graphics mode, troubleshoot the problem, or update my graphics list.. I tried the latter two, ...

Re: Excessively long shut down times

Thanks, I'll give that a try. I saw there were quite a few level 3 updates. I was putting them off since my internet connection is far less than par.. Thanks again.

I'm on a Sony Viao laptop, model VGN-SZ780. I just got my NVIDIA driver installed; will reboot and see what happens.

Excessively long shut down times

Just booted Felicia and I have noticed that it takes a long time to shut down my system.. From the time I click "Shut Down," watch the splash screen and another blank screen with a blinking cursor in the top left; until my computer is completely off it's been 2 minutes. Just seems like a long time t...

Adjust Screen Brightness with 'Fn" key?

I'm running Elyssa on my Vaio and I can't adjust the brightness level of my screen with the 'Fn+F5' shortcut combo that Sony used originally. But, I can use the appropriate Fn combo for volume control. Can somebody point me in the right direction? Thanks

Re: No Headphones

It looks like this is heading me in the right direction.

But I tried entering the text anyways- options snd-hda-intel model=vaio And I g...
