Re: UNSOLVED - How do I change the video card.?

Well, changing video cards in Linux Mint has proved to be very hard to do indeed. I have not been successful in finding the best video card for Linux nor been able to run 2 like video cards: an 8400 GS - PCIe and an 8400 GS - PCI nor a Radeon or NVIDIA GTX...! I'm not knocking Linux Mint but these t...

UNSOLVED - changing video cards in Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.2

I have a working "Linux Mint Cinnamon" system for a year+ now. I changed out the CPU and went from an Athlon II X3 425 to an FX-6300 but I never changed a component in Linux that required a driver to operate. In a few short weeks I am planning to change the video card from a GT 610 to a GTX 660 Ti. ...

Re: Suspend Mode Problem

Didn't Work.! Running Kernel 4.13.0-45 and SUSPEND MODE still yields no video when trying to wake the system up. Have to re boot in order to get video back. Turned suspend to never.

Any Suggestions.?

Re: Suspend Mode Problem

Scratch that last reply. I had a chance to think about it. I went and installed Kernel 4.13.0-45 and I am currently running in this Kernel and my video seems fine. (Puzzling why other Kernels after 4.4.0-119 until this one made it buggy). Testing suspend mode now in this kernel now.!

UNSOLVED - Suspend Mode Problem

If I set the Power option to suspend after say, 30 minutes. The computer seems to power down. When I hit a key to wake it up, it acts like the computer is powering up but the screen stays dark with no signal going to it. The power light on the computer comes on and I hear the fans start up but no si...

Re: SOLVED -To Up-Date Kernel and Version or NOT

I tried the Live DVD of Cinnamon 18.3.... No Dice..! I think I have up-graded as far as I can go with 18.2, 4.4.0 - 119 since my monitor is still a flat screen VGA. Running dual monitors if I update the video, only one monitor works, the one using an adapter to the video DVI Port works. I am happy w...

On 3 computers with AMD 4 Cores, and at least 8GBs of Ram, I downloaded from the software manager - under Games - from the category, 'First-Person Shooters', several of the Shooter games and did so on each computer. The games locked up the computers while some would play for a minute or two and then...

I had Win 10 on second computer. My 8 year old granddaughter played RoBlox's games on it. Before I thought it through, I deleted Win 10 and installed Linux Mint Cinnamon on it. It boots up fast not being a Dual Boot System. However, RoBlox's doesn't play well unless its on a Windows System so I want...
