major video issue
I sure hope someone can help me with this.I have a ibm think pad a21m.800 mhz 32o ram.I was running ubuntu just fine.Now after i login it will display a tiled ibm logo at the top of the screen tiled and then disappears.then then lower half of the screen is black until i hover over it with my mouse.I get it to go awaym then i open up Firefox and do a search and all the text is layers on top of each other.Once again if i hover over it with my mouse it will be display normally.But it seems to be an ongoing issue.My guess would be that the video memory has gone bad.What do you think? the video memory is attached to the motherboard,so i would have to replace that.I found one on ebay for 45 bucks.But would like to be more confident with what it is before i spent money.What do you think it is? does it sound like bad video memory to you? please let me know what you think.Thank you in advance.
