Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have a Samsung Chronos 7 1TB, 2.2ghz, 6gb ram and I recently installed Ubuntu because I wanted to get rid of Windows. Everything has gone good until I noticed a significant battery drain and overheating. When I click on "about this computer" it shows I have an Intel Sandybridge Mobile graphics card. I've tried installing the latest AMD and it installed correctly but it disabled Unity so I went back to the one I was using before. If anyone could please give me tips or link to another forum with an answer that'd be great! I love Ubuntu but I can't get used to this 1.5 hour battery life as opposed to the 4 hours I got with Windows 7 and I'm not going back to Windows

Turns out I had to install the Intel Linux drivers. Solved the problem. Thank you for your input!
