Hey guys I have been haveing a serries hardware issue on my machien and I know that it has only happened on Linux as it does not happen on the Windows partinon and the hard drive is good. Ok so here is what happens I boot up my computer and boot into the Linux Mint Partion right, it boots up logis in and loads up XFCE, but if I try to load firefox the screen goes white like a candy cane and it just stays that way untill I hold down the power button for 8 seconds. I noticed this ocasionaly happens with Google Chome, chomium, Virtualbox, and any kind of emmulation.
my hardware specks are in the thing on the botom. never mind as they don't allow atachments for some god knows reason!:
Is it the CPU, the Ram, or do I need a graphics card. What is this thing that keeps happening to me?!:crying::mad::surprised::-/:@:@:@:@:@:@:
It happens in LXDE, XFCE, Cinnamon, Windowmaker, E17, mate, how do I fix this thing?
Will installing the closed source Nvidia driver help? Anybody out there knows what the hell is going on?my hardware in a thread about hardware.basic hardware info
