Re: Can I fix this?

Cool, thank you very much. I had reloaded a few times and have not seen it in a while, and quite honestly forgot that I had posted :lol: But this is now safely tucked away in my profile for when it happens again.
Cheers Mate!

Re: How to format laptop clean? Is this the right word?

Thanks Ya'll, I guess then from what you say, I don't really need to worry about it. I just use my laptop for home use and don't have work or other sensitive data on it. I guess that when I reload and choose the box to erase everything on the hard drive it does it's job then.
Thanks again.

Like you siad, I thin after you install you have to do the reboot, then do the updates, then reboot, then add the drivers, and it should be all well and good. Also, on the NVIDIA th...

Re: Where's the envelope from Lucid?

Yea, using Ubuntuone would be nice, but I am talking about the indicator applet that has the envelope, which when clicked, has a menu for email, chat client, and I believe ubuntuone.
