Yep, I know this battery is good. It works flawlessly with windows 7 and I have never had any issues with it until now.
As for the hardware problem, how would i go about diagnosing and fixing exactly what the problem is.
-Edit- Ok nevermind, I downloaded and installed a driver for my graphics card and it is working great! There is just a really small problem. When the computer is booting and the "ubuntu" screen comes up with the dots that change colors, it looks like it is really "zoomed in" so to speak. It looks zoomed to the point that it is very pixelated. Is there any way to change that?
P.S. Thanks guys, you have been incredibly helpful!
