Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my averatec laptop, 3200 series. On first run, I got a message that said there were difficulties with firmware, and that I should go to a specific net location and download specific stuff. When I went to get paper to copy the message, it disappeared, and has not reappeared.

desktop now opens in recovery mode, and nothing seems to be working well.

Anyone know what I should be doing?
