I recently installed Ubuntu on an old laptop of mine, and I am having some problems. I installed everything and followed the guide like it said, but, when I try to boot up from hard drive it displays the desktop, but everything starts to glitch out and I can't click on any applications or scroll over them without it glitching, proceeded by a lock-up. I might re-install it to see if it helps, but if not, you guys got to help me out.

PC Specs:

  • HP Compaq Presario v6000

  • AMD Sempron(1.8ghz)

  • Nvidia Geforce GO 6150

  • 80gb harddrive

  • 2gb of RAM

I forgot to mention I installed the 12.10 version and replaced my old OS(Windows xp). – aaron Dec 17 '12 at 2:00
What exactly do you mean by "glitches out?" Does it start when you open the dash? This sounds like a driver problem I had with a system that has a Sempron in it. – Josh Jan 10 '13 at 2:21

I am sending this from my V6000. I tried a lot of different UBUBTU versions. Both 32 and 64 bits. Currently I am running Lubuntu 12.04 64 bits and it is running quite satisfactory. The problem is that your video gets overloaded when using the "normal" Ububtu 12.04. good luck, Robert
