My friends Dell laptop (inspiron 2600) is having alot of problems....
His original copy of windows completely shot out and doesn't work. So I offered to put linux on it. It worked great and he was moderately pleased. I booted up fedora and it said that it found some new hardware while booting and that it wanted to configure it. I said ok. It was something video realated.
Well, it continued to boot up, and when I logged in, it was in 800x600 resolution (not stretched out, it was small in the middle of the screen). I was like, "uh oh." So I restarted it and now its stuck in 640x480!! (stretched out)
The same thing happened when we tried to reinstall Windows on his computer.
Know what the problem is?
