i started to use linux ubuntu not a while ago and I am already addicted to it. I really liked programming c++ via the terminal, (ya know 3 terminals and dual screens all that makes you feel like a pro)
but recently I don't know what happened, a lot of strange things happened to my OS -
when i boot , i only get my wallpaper (no icons and no nothing)
when i use the dual screens i get a very weird error, i googled it out and found that i must edit something like /etc/X11/conf or something like that.
the screen started to gimme some strange lines and even blackness sometimes, i think its due to my VGA driver.
and sometimes when i shut down i get a message saying not enough memory. I am running ubuntu on my toshiba satalite L650 core i3 , 2 gigs ram , 1 gig VGA ATI.
All i want is just to get to gain access to my HDD because there are a lot of important things that i don't wanna lose.
i would really appreciate some help, thanks in advance
