  1. thanks for the replies. Znx: You wrote Edit the file /boot/grub/grub.conf and look for the line beginning with kernel, then add the options to the end. For instance: kernel /vmlinuz-VERSION ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb noapic nolapic I don't know where to write this - if it was windows I'd go into dos but I don't know where to start. Yesterday everything ran smoothly- I even managed to watch BBC iplayer with perfect graphics where the day before it was all broken up- also WE7 music. But today I've had the slowing up problem.I tried to add last fm through the rhythm music player and the process went on for ever.The browser part of the screen went all grey- the taskbar stayed the normal colour- I presume this indicates that something powerful is happening in the background and it's using all the ram(512 by the way). Also the sound recorder doesn't seem to be registering any sound .The Level bar is right over at the left hand side with about.5 cm showing.I've adjusted the volume properties to max but it stays the same when I come to record. Thanks again.All help really appreciated.
  2. Just retired and wanting to save money i got my son's unrelible windows vista system working but wanted to get away from Microsoft so I found Fedora 11 with lots of god write ups. Had trouble creating cd but when this was finally sorted,ran from live d.I was very impressed, especially when my memory stick just opened up with none of the windows palaver.I think it's brilliant how the downloads look after themselves and go straight to the want to run window and don't just lie in the download box but of course this could be just the beta version of Firefox(3.5) I was also impressed bythe speed of everything.So I installed the operating system to hard drive, changed the bios back to default- reading from hard drive and not cd I then restarted the machine- I had to do it many times before it booted . Since then I have a few sudden shutdowns and very erratic start-ups also system slowing right down or freezing.It's working fine right now but I expect the same probs to repeat themselves.Also various graphics have broken up on the screen.I downloaded adobe flash for linusrpm and the pages opened butthe graphics and even some of the text broke up on the page.I used the WE7 website and the sound came thru fine but he screen was again all broken up- I'm sure it's not my computer because with vista on it I didn't have this problem,Also when booting up I get the messageMP bios bug 8254.I've seen this reported in a few forums but no answers so far. Finally where should I start to begin to understand Fedora or Linux language .The documentation is hard to follow .Any help would be very appreciated .Please be gentle .I know nothing!
