I suggest you remove all the instances you mention above. The correct way is: sudo -i echo "options forcedeth msi=0 msix=0" > /etc/modprobe.d/forcedeth.conf exit Upon reboot, the parameters will be applied. Whether they fix your exact issue is another question.

AMD has dropped support for the Radeon HD 4000 series, which is what you have. You might still be able to use this driver, but it probably won't be an update for what you have.

Upgrade to the latest kernel and install fixed 8192cu driver. I have had similar problems and they have vanished with the upgrade to the latest kernel "Linux 3.16.0-34-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 10 18:02:58 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux".

Although you say you are running 14.04, your 3.16.0-xx kernel corresponds to Ubuntu 14.10. The driver iwlwifi is somewhat unique in that the pci.id, for instance 8086:4239, tells the driver the exact device and calls the appropriate firmware for the device in question. I suspect the version: In tree means that the version is what was included in the ...

As praseodym says, the static addresses need to be outside the range used by the router for DHCP. For example, if the router (in your case, the DSL appliance supplied by your ISP) assigns DHCP addresses from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.50, for example, use static addresses from x.51 on up. If you have Network Manager installed, you will find the process ...

Two things may be wrong. With the second possibility usually you don't make it to the login screen, so I kind of doubt that's it, but a corrupt install remains a possibility.

The easiest way to keep your video drivers updates is the xorg.edgers PPA. These include Intel, nVidia and Bumblebee.

Finally, I figured out the problem.It was with the version of the GCC.I have two version of GCC, gcc-4.4(which I need for some CAD tools) and gcc-4.8.

The first thing you want to do when, after an update, some hardware doesn't work, is to reboot to the previous kernel, which is kept. You can find them in the boot menu. This kind of thing can happen from time to time with proprietary drivers and is one of the main reasons they are so intensely hated by many. Very often, though, you can "fix" it by simply ...
