ATI Radeon 200M & 3D

For some reason I can't play ANY game on my machine, it doesn't matter if it is a linux game, a WINE game, a game for windows run in the virtual box, etc. I don't know what I'm doing in this respect. Please help me troubleshoot this, I promise not to drag this on.

Re: HP DV5120

Please note that many OEM computer Manf. change their MBs so you can't mess with them-- Most of the Info on other sites is for boxed MBs It's best to go with HP on this,they know what they did in building this computer :( but true Argh!!! I was afraid someone would say that...I was just hoping :cry...

Re: snail paced lxde

Thanks gqpolo for the link, but I am REALLY a newbie and "bluetooth" is about the only application that I know what it is, so how do I know which other ones I can delete (pcmanfm??? conky?? nm??? etc. etc.) I think lxpanel has to be left (it's what windows calls the taskbar, right?) but for all I k...

Re: HP DV5120

Thanks Vincent. Please look at this link http://www.bizrate.com/motherboards/hp- ... 625085365/

I got the hp part number for the motherboard from the manual. Why would HP say I can only put in 2G when this says 4G?

Re: HP DV5120

Thanks for the reply. Some forums say you can put a 2G memory module in one bay and a 1g module in the other. Why can't I put 2 2G modules in there and run a 64 bit OS? Any hardware gurus out there???

Re: torrent

Go to a site like http://www.kickasstorrents.com and download a torrent then click on the torrent and transmission will start (in mint9 LXDE anyway) then click add and it will start to download. Hope that helps.
