I feel like a dummy.
My laptop popped up and said some updates were available, do I want to install them. So I said yes. Then it told me to reboot to enable the new kernel or something to that effect.
I did and there was no graphics anymore, just text.
So I ran yast and told it to reinstall the kernel and reinstall x11, I think. I don't remember what all I told it to reinstall.
Anyway so it did it and rebooted and I got the graphics back but now it's horrible.
When the screen saver kicks in the video strobes, it's horrible.
And you can't scroll anything, it takes like a week to scroll one webpage up or down. It's really, really bad.
I have to say that it's made my laptop unusable now. I've just turned it off for the past two days now because I can't do anything with it at all.
I have no idea what to do now.
Can anyone please tell me how to fix it please?!
Oh, I downloaded the ATI driver from the ati website but when I try to run it it tells me something is missing and it can't install and it just aborts.
The laptop is a Compaq R3000 with a 2.8ghz celeron-m, 1.2gb memory and an ATI RS300 (?)
Hmmm, I guess you can't put pictures in here..
That's what it says about my stupid graphics card.
I hope someone can help me, I'm lost and frustrated now.
