I'm pretty bad with Linux, but I've been using it for five years now, because there's some incredible free software and Open Source is good and all that stuff, and if I ever ran into a problem I could find a solution on these forums and mend it myself and learn a little along the way. However...
I've been trying a lot of fixes to get my graphics card working on the new netbook I bought. Sadly, I've been trying for the past few days and I'm pretty stumped. It would be particularly nice to get this working since my screen brightness can't be changed, and obviously having a netbook that drains battery doesn't make it worthwhile.
If I install the proprietary drivers recommended it will prevent booting.
Maybe there's no drivers for Ubuntu yet, and I should wait patiently.
Here are some people having the same problem:
Model: Aspire One, AO725-0826
OS: Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit
Processor: AMD C-70 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics × 2
Video Card: Wrestler [Radeon HD 7290]
